The wait is nearly over for Twin Peaks fans, with Deadline reporting that the cult show now has a season 3 premiere date confirmed.

Showtime president David Nevins announced on the network's TCA session on Monday that the new season will debut on Showtime on May 21 at 9 PM with a two-hour premiere.

And even more good news, immediately after episodes 3 and 4 will also be made available on Showtime's digital platform, before been aired weekly thereafter.

Nevins also confirmed that season 3 will consist of 18 episodes, with the episode count previously unknown due to Lynch originally filming the season as a movie.

When asked if a second new season of the show could also be on the cards Nevins did not rule it out completely, but he did add that the upcoming season "is designed to be close-ended, one-time event."

The new season of "Twin Peaks" will see Kyle MacLachlan return in his role as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper alongside Lynch himself making his return as FBI Agent Gordon Cole. Other original cast members are also confirmed alongside some new faces.
