Happy Twin Peaks Day! 

Showtime Unveils Revival Posters

In honor of "Twin Peaks Day" on Friday, Showtime unveiled new key art for its upcoming reboot of the David Lynch series.
The dual posters feature translucent photographs of the late Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) and Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), who investigates her death in the original series, each set against a wooded backdrop.
Showtime's revival -- an 18-part limited event series -- picks up 25 years after the murder of Laura Palmer, which kicked off the original series. The reboot is written by series creators Lynch (who is also directing all 18 episodes) and Mark Frost, who are acting as executive producers along with Sabrina S. Sutherland.
Feb. 24 is dubbed "Twin Peaks Day" because it is the day Dale Cooper arrives in the northwestern town of Twin Peaks in the original series.
Check out the new posters here: Twin Peaks premieres Sunday, May 21 at 9/8c on Showtime.
(Full disclosure: is owned by CBS, one of Showtime's parent companies.)

The Bachelor's 

Next Episode Is Getting Split In Two

The Bachelor's schedule is getting a little shaken up the next two weeks, with the upcoming ninth episode split in two.
Monday, Feb. 27th's new episode will be an hour long instead of the usual two hours in order to accommodate the two-hour premiere of the LGBT civil rights limited series When We Rise. Rumor has it that this episode will be taken up mostly by Nick Viall's conversation with Bachelorette ex Andi Dorfman before moving to Finland for his fantasy suite dates with his three remaining contestants. (When We Rise will itself be bumped from Tuesday for President Trump's Congressional address.)
March 6th's episode will be the conclusion of the fantasy suite dates. The hour will be immediately followed by the Men Tell All reunion special from 9 to 11pm ET. There will not be an episode of Quantico that night.
The Bachelor's season finale will happen as planned, with the final episode airing at 8pm on March 13th followed by the live After the Final Rose special. So be prepared for six hours of The Bachelor in the last two weeks.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
