According to, Seyfried’s role in the series is being kept a mystery, but her character is said to be 'pivotal' and she is expected to appear in ‘multiple episodes’. The role will be her biggest small screen outing since 2011’s 'Big Love'.

The revival had hit a snag earlier this year when creator David Lynch announced his departure. “After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done,” Lynch said at the time.

However a month later Lynch confirmed he was back on board and would be directing all 18 episodes of the new series. "I never had doubt we would get him back, 'Twin Peaks' is a huge priority for us," Showtime producer David Nevins said in May.

"It became clear it would take more than nine episodes, which we had planned and budgeted for. We had to sort that out. Lynch wanted to direct all episodes, and we wanted him to direct all episodes. We are looking to be in great shape.”

Speaking about the new series, Lynch’s writing partner Mark Frost promised fans that they’d be happy with where the new series takes them. "For those followers of the show who felt bereft when the show ended where it did all those years ago are going to like where it goes from here," Frost said.

"And we hope that a lot of people who haven't been to 'Twin Peaks' yet are going to be equally interested in where the story goes from where we left off.” The series is expected to debut on Showtime in late 2016 or early 2017.
