Twin Peaks “Missing” Posters Show Up in Australia: Here’s What Calling the Number Gives You
We’re approximately two-and-a-half months away from Showtime’s revival of “Twin Peaks”, the David Lynch/Mark Frost murder mystery series that aired in the early 90’s and captivated audiences the world over. Personally, it’s my most anticipated event of the year as I have long been a fan of the original series. Something about the charming characters, the hypnotic and gorgeous music, and the captivating story drew me in and never let me go. Just like with other fans of the series, I’ve been left for decades with an unsatisfying ending, one that raised more questions than it answered, and it left me begging for more, crying out for more to what felt like an endless deafness from television executives. But no more! Sunday, May 21st, sees the return of that delightful show and you better believe I’ll have my ass planted on my couch and my phone and laptop shut off so that I can devote every ounce of my attention to the premiere!
Now, we’ve all known that this series is coming. Hell, it’s been in the news for almost two years! But with the premiere locked down, marketing has really begun ramping up and it seems that folks in Australia have begun seeing missing posters for Laura Palmer pop up here and there. Attached to these posters is a fun number that plays a pre-recorded message for anyone who calls it. Soundcloud user void as gave the number a ring and then recorded the message, which featured a “Twin Peaks” staple: a backwards message. Playing it in reverse, it reveals itself to be the giant man saying, “It is happening again.” You can give the recording a listen below.
The 18-part limited event series “Twin Peaks” will debut with a two-part premiere on Sunday, May 21st, at 9PM ET/PT. Immediately following the premiere, Showtime subscribers will have access to the third and fourth parts, exclusively across the network’s streaming service, SHOWTIME ANYTIME, and SHOWTIME ON DEMAND. In its second week, “Twin Peaks” will air the third and fourth parts back-to-back on the linear network, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by one-hour parts in subsequent weeks.
