Kyle MacLachlan as Dale Cooper/ Evil Cooper
This Emmy and Golden Globe winner has been Lynch’s mascot long before Twin Peaks. He appeared in two of his cult movies: Dune (1984) and Blue Velvet (1986). MacLachlan went on to explore the big and small screen with equal gusto. His prominent TV roles since include: Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s 58 now but still as compelling as ever in reprising his iconic character.
Catherine E. Coulson as The Log Lady
Fans are going to be a little heartbroken to learn that she passed away at the age of 71 in 2015. The scenes we are seeing now were shot before her death. Like MacLachlan, she also crossed paths with Lynch when she worked with him on Eraserhead (1977), a low-budget classic that was four years in the making. Twelve years later, they were reunited for Twin Peaks, the two seasons as well as the prequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and this third TV offering. In between, she was spotted in an episode of Psych in 2010 and Portlandia in 2012. She was also in Gary Lundgren’s Redwood Highway movie.
David Lynch as Gordon Cole
The director, who co-wrote all 18 episodes with Mark Frost, is 71 but still at the top of his game. He needs no introduction. But if you are trying to understand his vision, let’s just say he’s a fan of filmmakers like as Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini, Werner Herzog and Jacques Tati. He approaches his projects with a dreamlike and unsettling vision. But he is impactful all the same.
David Duchovny as Denise Bryson
Yes, he is better known for his role as FBI agent Fox Mulder in The X-Files and Californication. He’s also got a few movies under his belt and is currently in Aquarius, a crime thriller, which was canned after the second season. Lynch is being very tight-lipped about Duchovny’s return.
Sherilyn Fenn as Audrey Horne
The 52-year-old actress started her career in B-grade sexploitation movies. Of course, she started bagging better projects later on. She briefly dated pop singer Prince in 1985 and then Johnny Depp, for several years, from 1986. In one of her interviews about her return to Twin Peaks, she said: “I think (the reboot) will probably, hopefully, be some of his best work. The beauty of age is we grow, we learn. We have more wisdom.
Mädchen Amick as Shelly Johnson
Recently cast as Alice Cooper in the series Riverdale, this 46-year-old actress has many films and TV shows under her belt. Some of her prominent roles include: Gilmore Girls, ER, Joey, Dawson’s Creek, Witches of East End and American Horror Story: Hotel.
Peggy Lipton as Norma Jennings
This former model gained prominence after bagging a Golden Globe for Best Actress - Television Series Drama for her role in The Mod Squad in 1970. She has a few films to her credit and has done her rounds on the TV circuit with roles in Wings, Alias, Rules of Engagement, House of Lies, Psych and Angie Tribeca.
