Ahead of the premiere of the new Twin Peaks episodes on Showtime, the premium network has released a trio of videos aimed at catching audiences up on the original phenomenon. Featuring interviews with David Lynch and Kyle MacLachlan, these videos also include producers such as Damon Lindelof (Lost), Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland), and David Hollander (Ray Donovan) who discuss how Twin Peaks has inspired them over the years. That influence, and the show’s importance in the creative world, is outlined in three new, 5-minute videos.

As a bonus, Showtime is offering a 30-day free trial in advance of the Twin Peaks limited event series’ two-part premiere on Sunday, May 21st at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Immediately following the premiere, subscribers will have access to the series’ third and fourth parts across the network’s streaming service, Showtime Anytime and Showtime on Demand. Those episodes will then air back-to-back on May 28th, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by single parts in subsequent weeks.
