Clue No 1: A post package from Gordon Cole to T______ P_____
So far we didn’t know much about the plot of Twin Peaks Season 3. That all changed yesterday when Mark Frost tweeted a new teaser video for his upcoming novel ‘The Secret History of Twin Peaks’, that will prepare us for the new Twin Peaks TV show.
And now for something completely different…https://t.co/YVJzXGW55w

The freshly released video offers numerous of clues to Twin Peaks fans who are willing to take the effort of pausing the video and read the shown documents. Time travel or multiple time dimensions seems to be one aspect of the new Twin Peaks TV show suggested in this video.
New Video – ‘The Secret History of Twin Peaks’
Twenty-five years after the murder of Laura Palmer, the FBI gets a hold of a box. In the box, they find a huge dossier on the town of Twin Peaks.
A female FBI agent is tasked to analyse all the documents inside. She also has to determine the identity of the person who compiled the dossier.
Twin Peaks Season 3: Clue No 1
The video shows the box is sent by Gordon Cole, agent Cooper’s supervisor who still operates from Philadelphia. The receiver’s address has been partly blacked out. The box is adressed to a T______ P_____ in Twin Peaks. Could that last name be ‘Palmer’?
Keeps us guessing, doesn’t it? A family member of Laura Palmer that joined the FBI? Another cousin?
Funny detail: the ZIP code WA 98065 is that of the city of Snoqualmie, where most outdoor scenes of the Twin Peaks TV show were shot.
Time travel in new Twin Peaks TV show?
Remarkably the post package is dated August 3, 2016 while the video was released July 27, 2016. Did something or someone press Mark Frost into releasing the new video a little earlier than the planned date?
Or is the post package deliberately dated in the future as a reference to time traveling? The theme of time travel came up in both the Twin Peaks TV show and the movie ‘Fire Walk With Me’.
Twin Peaks Reboot: information was scarce, until now
The Twin Peaks reboot was first announced by a simultaneous tweet coming from the creators David Lynch and Mark Frost on October 3, 2014.
Since then, curious Twin Peaks fans didn’t get much to go on. Up to now, two promo videos have been released: A very short one showing the dancing dwarf and a longer one based on an interview with Michael Horse, who plays deputy Hawk.
We also got the official 217-members cast list, which had some surprises in store but didn’t tell you much about storylines to expect from Twin Peaks Season 3.
Mark Frost’s upcoming book ‘The Secret History of Twin Peaks’, however, introduces brand new elements to Twin Peaks fans. The new video sure delivered what Twin Peaks fans have been waiting for.
The new video makes me think this new Twin Peaks TV show is actually going to be really good. In our next blog post we will be exploring more of the material shown in ‘The Secret History of Twin Peaks’ video!
