Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: While a handful of the seemingly nasty characters turn out to be good guys, or not all that bad, or redeem themselves, the series still has a few genuinely irredeemable jerks: Leo (although he is put through torture that makes him almost sympathetic), Chad (who has something mean-spirited to say about everything and everyone, ''even a troubled suicide victim''), and Richard (the designated audience HateSink and an obvious CompleteMonster).

Added DiffLines:

* WriterOnBoard: While the series doesn't carry any specific ideology with it besides the notion of a spiritual struggle between good and evil (occasionally flavored by David Lynch's interest in eastern mysticism and Mark Frost's interest in western mysticism), Naomi Watts' character gets a rant in very in line with some of Mark Frosts' political views.

* FinalExamFinale: Everybody comes BackForTheFinale, [[AnotherDimension including the dead characters]] and [[PutOnABus characters still in town who'd not been seen for ages.]] The show asks you to remember Jacoby describing a burning motor oil smell, what Hawk said about the [[EvilDoppelganger dweller on the threshold]], and that [[OutOfFocus Ronette Pulasky and Sarah Palmer ever existed.]] Of course, [[spoiler:[[CliffHanger Cooper's still in the Black Lodge, everybody's in mortal peril, and the last shot of the second season is BOB in Cooper's body laughing about the turn of fortune...]]]] ''[[{{Revival}} for 25 years]]''.

* FoilerFootage: The scene of [[spoiler:Maddy's murder]], which reveals who killed Laura Palmer, was filmed twice with both [[spoiler:Leland]], the real killer, and [[spoiler:Ben Horne]], the red herring, to confuse anyone who might be tempted to leak. At the script stage, no less than three versions of the scene were reportedly distributed, with the third having [[spoiler:Dr. Jacoby]] as a second red herring candidate.

* BloodierAndGorier: Just as TheMovie is DarkerAndEdgier than the original series in thematic content and emotional impact, ''The Return'' is DarkerAndEdgier in tone than the original series in terms of the graphic content portrayed: including, among other things, a graphic, slasher flick style [[spoiler:death by sex]] at the hands of a mysterious alien creature, but also the kind of crime scene sequence that would make Creator/DavidFincher wince.

** One interpretation of Garland Briggs' excessive formality, obsessiveness, flat expressions and (outward/seeming) difficulty relating to other people ([[spoiler:though ''The Secret History of Twin Peaks'' reveals him to be astonishingly perceptive]]) might not just be his stuffy bearing as a military man: it's possible he might actually have diagnosable asperger's syndrome, or at least something similar. Which would go a long way to explaining some of his eccentricities such as wearing his uniform off the clock even in less-than-appropriate situations.

* AmbiguousGenderIdentity: Denise Bryson, a DEA agent who might be a male transvestite or transgender female, since the series doesn't care to explain it.



** Dennis/Denise Bryson, being of AmbiguousGenderIdentity, can pull off the sleek DEA agent look as well as the sultry waitress look without breaking a sweat. In fact, this is how she initially discovered her different feelings, during an undercover operation that required her to dress as a woman.

** Dennis/Denise Bryson, being of AmbiguousGenderIdentity, can pull off the sleek DEA agent look Denise Bryson as well as the sultry waitress look without breaking a sweat. In fact, this is how she initially discovered somewhat subversion: having to be disguised in drag made her different feelings, during an undercover operation realize that required her she was a trans woman. Therefore, it wasn't drag at all, and she proceeded to dress live full time as a woman.

After years of rumors of a return (all of which were denied by Lynch), Showtime picked the show up for an additional nine episodes in October 2014. It was initially reported that Lynch and Frost would return to write and direct, but after Lynch didn't feel Showtime [[ScrewedByTheNetwork were willing to give him a proper budget]], he [[http://www.tvguide.com/news/david-lynch-drops-out-twin-peaks-revival-showtime/ announced that he had dropped out in April 2015]]. However, in May 2015, Lynch eventually confirmed that he will be directing and writing the new season and that there will be more than the nine episodes initially announced -- that and the two decades of time between seasons (some of which is covered in Mark Frost's book ''The Secret History of Twin Peaks'') would be crucial to the plot. Location shooting has been ongoing throughout Autumn 2015, and ended in April 2016. The revival premiered on May 21, 2017, with 18 episodes.
