  • Kyle MacLachlan Set to Return to Twin Peaks

    Twin Peaks fans, pour yourself a steaming cup of black coffee and a slice of cherry pie as everyone’s favorite federal agent is set to return to the classic series. Kyle MacLachlan confirmed that he would be reprising his leading role as Agent Dale Cooper on Monday during Showtime’s panel at the Television Critics Association Winter press tour, putting to rest rumors that have been circulating ever since it was announced last October that David Lynch’s and Mark Frost’s cult television would return to the small screen in a nine-episode run on Showtime in 2016.

    MacMachlan’s announcement came as a surprise to a room full of television critics as MacLachlan strolled onto the stage, while remarking to Showtime president David Nevins, “You look like you need a damn fine cup of coffee,” a spin on Cooper’s infamous catchphrase.

    While this next installment of Twin Peaks is still heavily shrouded in secrecy—it will not be the show’s third season but rather revolve around a central storyline that may involve a new crime in the town of Twin Peaks with Lynch directing every episode—Nevins did remark that other members of the original cast would also be signing on. As for MacLachlan, he remarked to the crowd before exiting the stage that he is “very excited to return to the strange world of Twin Peaks.”

    This past Saturday and Monday evening, the New York Film Academy hosted a screening event with the David Lynch Foundation at our Union Square campus. The documentary covers renowned filmmaker, David Lynch’s 16 country tour as he spreads his philosophy of transcendental meditation.

    “I have been ‘diving within’ through the Transcendental Meditation technique for over 30 years,” says David Lynch. “It has changed my life, my world. I am not alone. Millions of other people of all ages, religions, and walks of life practice the technique and enjoy incredible benefits.”

    The meditation techniques are aimed to alleviate, and hopefully eliminate, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other stress-related disorders. The unique benefits of TM technique are well documented by extensive research.

    Saturday’s event was represented by David Lynch Foundation’s Lil Malinich, Jessica Wisk, and Executive Director Bob Roth. While Monday’s event was hosted by Director of Programs, Peter Trivelas. “NYFA students are passionate, courageous, and genuinely curious to know more about what can enlighten and strengthen their work as artists,” said Lil Malinich from the David Lynch Foundation. We couldn’t agree more.

    Both events were a tremendous success, with a full house of curious students and transcendental meditation enthusiasts. We want to thank the David Lynch Foundation for setting up two enlightening evenings to share with our community at the New York Film Academy.
