5 Cult TV Shows We Wish Netflix Would Bring Back


Twin Peaks (1990-1991)

"Don't drink that coffee! You'd never guess! There was a fish in the percolator!"

ABC's Twin Peaks had just two seasons to captivate the audience with its dark and everything-is-not-as-it-seems approach to plot and characters. In fact, you could argue it was one of the first TV series that did not hold back on not only making viewers feel creeped out following an episode, but also left them scratching their heads as the storyline went on - and of course, wanting more.

FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is sent to fictional Twin Peaks, Wash., to investigate the gruesome murder of Laura Palmer, a popular teenage girl. There, he is entrenched in the idiosyncrasies of small-town life, finding locals to trust and vice versa while putting the pieces together to one very shady crime.

Twin Peaks had just a short life of just two seasons, but a movie prequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me followed up in 1992.

You can already see the original Twin Peaks through Netflix.

Last year, Twin Peaks' co-writer David Lynch was rumored to be in talks with Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC for a revival of the early 90s show, picking up 25 years after the show left off, but apparently that was just a rumor, according to a January 2013 article by the Huffington Post.

That said, Netflix has already nodded that a Twin Peaks revival and continuation is not out of the picture. When asked about it by Stuff in May 2013, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said "Absolutely!"

Twin Peaks came in as No. 25 on TV Guide's "Top Cult Shows Ever."
