Twin Peaks is doubling its episode count for Season 3

Twin Peaks will air in 2016 with 18 episodes, or double the originally announced count, actress Sherilyn Fenn said during a recent panel at Crypticon.

During the convention, which took place in Seattle last week, Twin Peaks stars Sheryl Lee and Fenn — who played Laura Palmer and Audrey Horne, respectively — talked about the show and its upcoming season.

"I'm so happy we're back on, and 18 episodes now, even," Fenn said. "I'm pretty sure that's what happened with the hiccup was that David said that he saw Twin Peaks, but the universe and the strings just go all over the place even in the world, it's not just Twin Peaks. I think when he did the nine, he realized he needed nine more to really complete it."

In addition to its extended run, Twin Peaks will also see the return of the Double R diner and feature music from Angelo Badalamenti, who scored the original show.

We've reached out to Showtime for more information and will update accordingly. You can watch the full panel below.

Since news of its revival last year, the project has hit several bumps, including the loss of director David Lynch. Lynch has since rejoined the show and is expected to direct every episode.
