Twin Peaks Season 3 video reveals returning composer

Angelo Badalamenti is back for Twin Peaks Season 3

Right now, we’ll take any piece of Twin Peaks Season 3 trivia we can get – even if it’s not so much news as it is something being confirmed that we had just assumed was happening anyway.

In this instance, there’s this recently released video (it would be a bit of a stretch to call it a trailer), showing original theme composer Angelo Badalamenti playing part of the song while we head deeper into the woods and the tragic Laura Palmer looms large in the background.

Here’s the video and accompanying press release below:

TWIN PEAKS features prolific composer Angelo Badalamenti and his Grammy® Award-winning theme music from the original series – one of the most distinctive ever created for television by David Lynch. Badalamenti will return as composer for the new series, which will premiere on SHOWTIME in 2017.

Badalamenti has written some of the most unique film scores of our time. He is widely known for his long-standing collaboration with TWIN PEAKS director David Lynch, which has produced a creative and inspired body of work. In addition to receiving the Grammy Award for the theme music of the original series, the “Soundtrack Album from Twin Peaks” achieved gold status in 25 countries. Badalamenti has also received three Emmy® Award nominations for the original series, as well as Golden Globe® nominations for films The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.

One of the most groundbreaking and influential television series of all time, the new SHOWTIME series picks up twenty-five years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. The new TWIN PEAKS is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by Lynch.

Twin Peaks: Season 3 will air on Showtime later in 2017. For all the latest TV news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
