Now that the Star Wars news cycle has finally ended (jklol), it's time for us to turn our attention to the return of another beloved series.

On Friday, Showtime released a video teaser for the new series—set to air in 2017—that opens with sweeping, foggy vistas of the show's Pacific Northwest setting. "Location sometimes becomes a character," says actor Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk in the original series. "There's a lot of holy places up here, a lot of sacred places—I can't put my finger on how I would describe it," he continues. "It just touches something in the psyche. It's almost like being in a moving painting."

Soon the music swells (Angelo Badalamenti's "Falling" theme), a chill runs down your spine, and then it cuts to a brief cameo by someone who seems to bear a slight resemblance to David Lynch.

There's not much known about what happens in the new Twin Peaks series, but we do know that Kyle MacLachlan is back as Agent Cooper, and that the entire 9-episode series will be written by Mark Frost and Lynch and entirely directed by Lynch. This teaser is our first solid news about the series since Lynch briefly dropped out in April over a contract dispute, only to announce his return a month later.
