With just under two weeks to go until cult classic television series 'Twin Peaks' makes its small screen return, fans of the franchise are no closer to understanding exactly what plot and storyline will be followed when things kick off.

One of the things that have been established however is the incredible amount of actors on board, involved in bringing 'Twin Peaks' back for a third season. Robert Knepper ('Prison Break') is one of those actors, and whilst he's not forthcoming with any information, he did gush about the excitement he had working on the series.

"I'm a fan of his [creator David Lynch's] work, so it's a really amazing feeling to suddenly say you're going to be in this show," he explained to Digital Spy. "Pinch me, it feels so goddamn good!

The actor has said he hopes to "get the chance to do it again" with Lynch in the future,
