The first episode on May 21st will be two hours long, the season will be 18 episodes total.
Lynch explained that the show is filmed like a movie then cut into the episodes.

In 1992, the series was adapted for film ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,’ which was well received by fans but saw very little commercial success.
