Fans of the early 90’s cult television show Twin Peaks will get to travel to The Black Lodge yet again, this time in glorious high definition. According to Digital Bits, CBS is in the process of creating a Twin Peaks: The Complete Series Blu-ray set. Not only that, but the set is rumored to include David Lynch’s prequel film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
Twin Peaks ran for two seasons, from 1990 to 1991, and followed the surreal exploits of a small Washington lumber town, following the mysterious death of Homecoming Queen Laura Palmer. The show included a colorful cast of characters, such as Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper, Ray Wise as Leland Palmer and Lara Flynn Boyle as Donna Hayward, just to name a few. The prequel, Fire Walk With Me, detailed the events before Laura Palmer’s death, focusing on her last days.
This is a momentous occasion for die-hard Twin Peaks fans, because not only is this the first time both will be released on Blu-ray, but they’re being released together! The set is tentatively due out the end of this year, or possibly early 2014. The series, in its entirety, is currently available to watch in 720p definition on Netflix Instant Streaming.
