Twin Peaks is an American mystery/horror/drama television series created by Mark Frost and David Lynch. It premiered on ABC on April 8, 1990, and ran for two seasons until its cancellation in 1991. In the years following its release, the show gained a devoted cult following and has been referenced in a wide variety of media. Due in part to its renewed interest as a cult classic in the age of home video and streaming, the series was revived in 2017 as a limited event television series on Showtime. Twin Peaks is often listed among the greatest television series of all time, and has received universal acclaim from both critics and audiences. It is considered a landmark turning point in television drama.
