TWIN PEAKS Coming to Blu-Ray with 90 Minutes of Lost Scenes

I've got good news.  That TV show we like is going to come back in style.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the long-anticipated Blu-Ray release of David Lynch and Mark Frost's 1990-91 television classic Twin Peaks is finally coming out on July 29th.  In the new set, Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, Peaks Freaks will get every episode of the series in High Definition and the following according to Reuters...

"Both the U.S. and international versions of the series' pilot, the North American Blu-ray debut of Lynch’s prequel/sequel movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and nearly 90 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes from the film.  The set also features newly transferred Log Lady introductions for each episode, picture upgrades to many shots in the TV series, a new featurette with Lynch and the actors who portrayed the Palmer family which includes a mesmerizing return to the lives of their characters today, and hours of never-before-released material that dives into the fascinating story behind the celebrated pop culture classic.

"Along with a newly transferred version of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, created from a 4K scan of the original negative, the box set contains the long-awaited missing pieces from the original version of the film – nearly an hour-and-a-half of deleted/alternate scenes from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me – often referred to as the "holy grail" of Twin Peaks fandom.  This feature-length experience has been directed and edited by Lynch exclusively for this release.  Capping off more than 30 deleted/alternate scenes is an epilogue providing a fascinating glimpse beyond the cliffhanger finale of the TV series."

"During the last days in the life of Laura Palmer many things happened, which have never been seen before," said Lynch.  "They're here now alongside the new transfer of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Twin Peaks, the television series."
