A whopping 25 years after first appearing on ABC, Twin Peaks, one of the biggest cult hit TV series of all time, is returning as a Showtime limited series.

And you thought the wait between seasons of Sherlock was brutal.

In case you're, say, under the age of 30, Twin Peaks was created by Mark Frost and auteurDavid Lynch. It's a peculiar murder mystery about a peculiar FBI agent sent to investigate the murder of a homecoming queen in a peculiar little town in Washington called—yep, you guessed it—Twin Peaks. The show starred Kyle MacLachlan, Mädchen Amick, Michael Ontkean, Dana Ashbrook, and Lara Flynn Boyle, and premiered in 1990. It was adored by critics and quickly acquired a devoted cult following. However, as is often the case, the cult wasn't big enough to keep rating up, and the show was cut off after Season 2, leaving many a mystery unsolved.

The new limited series, which will air in 2016, will take place in the present day and will look to tie up all those loose ends left open in 1992. Frost and Lynch will write and produce all nine episodes, with Lynch also directing. It's unclear which members of the original cast will return, but MacLachlan is expected tow reprise his role as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.

So to all you My So-Called Life fans out there, don't give up! There's still hope.
