May 24, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A cult series will be televised uninterrupted in a special marathon that will run almost 18 hours. Showtime announced plans to air its entire 18-part “Twin Peaks” revival on Saturday, June 2, on Showtime 2.

The programming block is an Emmy For Your Consideration marathon. The special telecast begins Saturday, June 2, at 4:35 a.m. ET/PT and ends at 10 p.m. PT/ET.

“Directed entirely by David Lynch, who helmed more hours of television on a single series than any other director in the 2017-18 television season, the Showtime 18-part limited event series picked up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered,” Showtime notes in an announcement released today. “Golden Globe-winning and Emmy Award-nominated Kyle MacLachlan returned as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, Cooper Double and Dougie Jones.”

The series is written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.

Along with the linear broadcast on Showtime 2, all parts of the series are available to subscribers on multiple television and streaming providers’ devices, websites and applications and their free On Demand channels.

Showtime is currently available to subscribers via cable, DBS and telco providers, and as a stand-alone streaming service through Apple, Roku, Amazon, Google, Xbox One, Samsung and LG Smart TVs. Consumers can also subscribe to Showtime via Hulu, YouTube TV, Sling TV, DirecTV Now, Sony PlayStation Vue, Amazon Channels and FuboTV.
