David Lynch’s cult TV series Twin Peaks is back after 26 years.

The return of Twin Peaks was greeted with both praise and bafflement by critics, one of whom called it “familiarly inscrutable”.

Kyle MacLachlan reprises his role as FBI agent Dale Cooper in the 18-episode series, which began its run on May 21 on Showtime.

The first two episodes saw Kyle MacLachlan’s character still trapped in the mysterious “black lodge” where the original series left him in 1991.

Other characters to return included Laura Palmer, whose murder was the basis of the original show, and <<The Log Lady>>, played by the late Catherine Coulson.

Future episodes, all directed by David Lynch himself, will see Michael Cera, Laura Dern and Naomi Watts join the cast.

Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan was among those to welcome Twin Peaks’ return on Twitter, praising David Lynch for “outLynching the bejesus” out of his celebrated creation.

The Showtime network revealed the news at a Television Critics Association meeting in California, where Kyle MacLachlan made a cameo appearance.

“I think you need a damn good cup of coffee,” Kyle MacLachlan said, referring to one of Dale Cooper’s original catchphrases.

“I’m very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of Twin Peaks,” the actor said.

Twin Peaks creator David Lynch later announced the news on Twitter with the hashtag #damnfinecoffee.

The third series will be broadcast on Showtime in the US in 2016.

It will come 25 years after the first two series, which were aired in 1990 and 1991. A prequel film, Fire Walk With Me, was released in 1992.

The unsettling drama explored the murky goings-on in a US town after the murder of teenage beauty queen Laura Palmer.

Twin Peaks won three Golden Globe awards in 1991, including best TV drama series and best actor in a TV drama for Kyle MacLachlan.

Kyle MacLachlan went on to forge a successful TV career after Twin Peaks, with credits including Agents of Shield, The Good Wife, Portlandia, Desperate Housewives and others.
