Agent Cooper came to Twin Peaks to solve the "Who Killed Laura Palmer?" mystery. However, fans didn't find out who the culprit was until a big screen follow-up. Twin Peaks was one of the most game-changing serials to ever hit television, and a forerunner to shows like The Killing and The Bridge. Lynch and Frost influenced a generation of writers, including Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck, Glee, American Horror Story).

Showtime's continuation of the series will begin production in 2015. Lynch and Frost are reportedly setting nine all-new episodes in the present day.
