The entire cast of the Twin Peaks has been unveiled and it’s not a case of who’s starring in it, but who isn’t. Showtime’s announcement confirms the return of several of the show’s original cast members with a galaxy of other acting talent joining them.

While the return of Kyle MacLachlan had already been announced, a full list of all 217 cast members, published by the US cable channel Showtime, announces the arrival of established stars Monica Bellucci, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore, while Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder (we thought you might like to hear Vedder’s version of the 1960s Batman theme that he recorded with his daughter here) is also set to appear.

The series, set 25 years after the story last ended, will apparently not include original cast members Lara Flynn Boyle (who played Donna Hayward) and Piper Laurie (who played Catherine Martell) when it premieres next year. David Duchovny returns as Denise but there won’t be any demonic presence in the shape of Killer BOB, as the actor who brilliantly portrayed him, Frank Silva, passed away in 1995.

The full list is included below:
