One of the stars of ABC’s macabre early-1990s David Lynch series “Twin Peaks” is joining the cast of the network’s current drama “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” TVLine reports that Kyle MacLachlan will portray Skye’s father on the series.

The puzzle of Skye’s parents and how she ended up at an orphanage was a theme in the show’s first season, the story notes. MacLachlan will recur during the second season, which returns to ABC Sept. 23.

MacLachlan, a Golden Globe winner and two-time Emmy nominee — all for “Twin Peaks” — is well known for his film career, with credits including “Blue Velvet” and “Dune,” but he has also been a part of a number of television series in recent years, including “Portlandia,” “How I Met Your Mother” and “Sex and the City.”
