Twin Peaks is coming to Comic-Con International in San Diego for the first time ever this year. The hit TV series, which has made a successful return to the airwaves, is reportedly attending this year's annual event in San Diego, California scheduled to take place later this month.
Following the show's revival back in May, Twin Peaks is once again having a moment in the TV spectrum. The serial drama, which was created by Mark Frost and David Lynch, first aired back in the 1990s and had enjoyed both critical and mass success. It was one of the top-rated series in the decade until it was canceled after just two seasons, due to a steady decline in viewership ratings. Despite that, the show has become a cult TV classic and has continued to influence a wide variety of media. The show's 18-episode reintroduction courtesy of Showtime, has been nostalgic nonetheless - especially with Frost and Lynch reteaming behind the lenses and Kyle MacLachlan once again stepping back into the shoes of Special Agent Dale Cooper.
Now, fans heading to Comic-Con International later this month will potentially have a chance to meet and greet some of the many stars of Twin Peaks. Showtime has confirmed that the supernatural crime show will have a panel in Hall H on July 21, starting at 2:45 pm. The panel will include Twin Peaks cast members past and present, including Kyle MacLachlan, Tim Roth, Dana Ashbrook, Kimmy Robertson, Everett McGill, Matthew Lillard, James Marshall, Don Murray and Naomi Watts. The event is being moderated by Damon Lindelof - and it's certainly possible that Lynch will make an unannounced appearance during the panel, too.
With renewed interest from its long-time fans coupled with a new generation of followers due to the series' recent comeback, it will be interesting to see how Lynch (if he is there) and the rest of the Twin Peaks TV show cast handle their first appearance in Comic-Con International in San Diego. The revival show will still be in the middle of its limited run by the time the Twin Peaks cast/crew appears at the convention - and there will be an exclusive early screening of episode 11 at Comic-Con, as it turns out.
Aside from Twin Peaks, Game of Thrones and Preacher, there is a slew of other big shows coming to Comic-Con International in San Diego this year. Consistent partakers like The Walking Dead and Supernatural are of course booked already, while newcomers like Stranger Things, Inhumans and The Defenders are expected to kick their respective SDCC appearances with a bang.
Twin Peaks: The Return continues with 'Part 9' on Sunday, July 9th.
