Netflix surprisingly announced that it will stream the return of “Twin Peaks” for Latin America. The first double episode is already available on the platform since May 22. The streaming service will premiere one episode per week, every Monday, one day after the premiere in the United States.
After 25 years, the iconic series created by David Lynch and Mark Frost returned to TV (on Showtime) in the United States on Sunday 21. A few hours later, Netflix confirmed that it acquired the third season and that will offer new episodes weekly for Latin America. Until then, it was unknown what channel would broadcast the series in Latin America.
This is an unusual strategy for the streaming service, which is characterized for offering the complete seasons of TV series. However, due to the expectations around the return of the series, Netflix chose to offer the episodes as in traditional TV.
The third season of “Twin Peaks” will feature 18 episodes, all directed by Lynch. The series was first broadcast on ABC in 1990 and told the story of the mysterious murder case of teenager Laura Palmer. By then, the series had 30 episodes and two seasons.
