Whether or not the much discussed and speculated upon “Return to Twin Peaks” ever happens, we have some pretty cool news for fans of the show. Numerous former cast members, and even singer Julee Cruise, will be taking part in a “Twin Peaks” homage to air this fall on “Psych”.
According to The Ausiello Files on EW.com, two of “Peaks”‘ most iconic faces, Sheryl Lee (Laura/Maddy) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey), will appear in the episode [which is being co-written by “Psych” star and self-professed “Twin Peaks” addict James Roday] alongside previously announced guest star Dana Ashbrook (Bobby). All three will play residents of Dual Spires (get it?), a quirky Northern California town that has been rocked by the death of a high school student. The enigmatic Log Lady, Catherine Coulson, has signed on to make a cameo as — get this — the mysterious Woman with Wood, and Ray Wise (Leland) will reprise his Season 4 “Psych” role as Father Westley. Also popping up in cameos will be “Peaks” alums Lenny Von Dohlen (aka agoraphobic horticulturist Harold) and Robyn Lively (aka seductress Lana).
But that’s not even the best part! According to an Ausiello update, the highly anticipated hour will open with a special version of the “Psych” theme song performed by … Ms. Julee Cruise! As all “Twin Peaks” fans know, an instrumental version of Cruise’s haunting ’89 hit “Falling” served as the show’s theme song. She also appeared frequently on the groundbreaking ABC drama as a singer at the local biker bar The Roadhouse.
Now this … this is something to look forward to, even if you’ve never watched a single episode of “Psych”.
