It is happening again. Twenty-five years later, David Lynch’s groundbreaking series Twin Peaks continues. The limited event series airs Sundays at 9pm ET/PT, starting May 21st, only on SHOWTIME. To celebrate, we’re sharing our favorite moments from Twin Peaks; breaking down the show’s cultural impact, from TV to fan art; and building an IRL Tribute to Twin Peaks in Brooklyn. Tune in to see how the mystery evolves; stay for the damn good coffee.

The fashions in Twin Peaks are characters unto themselves, with the textures they provide Lynch’s game-changing show imbuing it with a simultaneous sense of coziness and alienation. The outfits costume designers Patricia Norris and Sara Markowitz selected for the original series embody American Small Town Charm — so it can then be contorted into a nightmare by moody cinematography and an ensemble of actors well versed in bursting out into screaming/crying fits. See some of the series’ best characters in their Twin Peaks-iest getups in our alphabetical list below, and get to know their quaintly terrifying existence.
