If you’re like me, David Lynch and Mark Frost’s series Twin Peaks holds a very special place in your heart. I’ve owned the series on VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray. Today, it looks like another collection will find its way onto my shelf in the form of Twin Peaks: From Z to A, which will be released in the U.S. and Canada on December 10 (pre-orders open now).
A 21-disc collection (!!!), the boxset is limited to 25,000 copies worldwide and will include the original series (both seasons), with the U.S. and international versions of the pilot, Fire Walk With Me and all deleted scenes, and last year’s third season, A Limited Event Series. Additionally, this will include never-before-released behind-the-scenes footage from the third season as well as new interviews with Kyle MacLachlan and Sheryl Lee, a new featurette with Harry Goaz and Kimmy Robertson, uncut versions of the musical performances at the Roadhouse Bar, and a 4K UHD disc of the original pilot AND “Part 8” from A Limited Event Series.
Here’s the breakdown of the packaging:
“A 21-disc collection, Twin Peaks: From Z to A will be housed in packaging with an exterior adorned by a wraparound vista of haunting and majestic Douglas Fir trees. Once opened, a depiction of the infamous Red Room is revealed with its brown and crème chevron floor and brilliant red curtains. Sitting in front of the red curtain will be an exclusive die-cut acrylic figure of Laura Palmer kissing Special Agent Dale Cooper. This acrylic figure comes inside a plastic display holder held in place by magnets. Fans will have the option of leaving the figure in place inside The Red Room environment or removing and displaying it elsewhere. The plastic holder can also serve as an easel to display individual images from The Red Room Gallery, a curated set of 5” x 5” printed cards depicting memorable moments in The Red Room. Each package will also contain an individually numbered collectible certificate.“
Newly-Produced Special Features And Unreleased Behind-The-Scenes Footage
TWIN PEAKS: FROM Z TO A will include over six hours of all-new special features:
• From the extensive behind-the-scenes footage of David Lynch making the A Limited Event Series (shot primarily by Jason S), 20-30 minute (approx.) pieces titled “Behind the Curtain” were edited and are included for each of the 18 Parts.
• A rare newly-shot interview of Kyle MacLachlan and Sheryl Lee who sit with longtime David Lynch collaborator Kristine McKenna to look back at their body of work on Twin Peaks as well as Fire Walk With Me.
• In a newly-produced featurette, fans can go “On the Couch” with Harry and Kimmy as Harry Goaz and Kimmy Robertson share fond Twin Peaks memories.
• As an additional treat for fans of A Limited Event Series, a compilation of full-length, unedited versions of many of The Roadhouse Bar musical performances.
4K Ultra HD Upgrades
Highlighting the visual artistry and sound design of two seminal episodes/parts, a special 4K UHD disc will be included that features a new ultra-high def transfer overseen by David Lynch of both versions of the 1990 Twin Peaks pilot, as well as the “phenomenal” (The New York Times) and “horrifyingly beautiful” (Vulture) Part 8 of A Limited Event Series.
Dubbed Twin Peaks: The Television Collection, this will be the first time that all three seasons will be collected in one release. They don’t reveal the exact special features but they do say it will come along with, “…a trove of previously-released special features.”
