Kyle MacLachlan is hosting a virtual Twin Peaks viewing party

Tune in on April 8 to celebrate the cult show’s 30th anniversary

Good news for fans of Twin Peaks: yesterday, Kyle MacLachlan posted a video on his Instagram suggesting a viewing party to mark the cult TV show’s 30th anniversary.

“I’m discovering my inner Beethoven,” he starts – referring to a new hair look – then continues: “So listen, I’ve been noticing that some of you have been watching and rewatching, and some discovering for the first time Twin Peaks, so I thought why don’t we set up a time when we can watch your favourite episode together.” 

Alongside the video he wrote: “Let me know in the comments below which episode from season one or two you’d want to watch the most.” 

The viewing party will take place on April 8, when Twin Peaks turns 30. Last year, the high school where the show was shot was demolished, but thankfully the show’s creator, David Lynch, turned some of the show’s most famous locations into a VR experience, from The Fireman’s Home by the Sea to the Red Room, so Twin Peaks lives on.

The mystery drama first aired in April 1990, and ran until June 1991. A one-off revival series aired in 2017, starring MacLachlan, and featuring Sky Ferreira and Laura Dern. There have been rumours circulating online for a while that the show is coming back again, but as yet, no further news has materialised. 

MacLachlan hasn’t explained where the virtual viewing party will be taking place, or which episode has been chosen, but he’ll likely post it on his Twitter again in the coming days.
