The new Twin Peaks box set contains nearly 90 minutes of deleted scenes

It is happening again: Another “complete series” edition of Twin Peaks is headed to home video on July 29, this time to Blu-ray—although this edition is more “complete” than ever before. Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery not only bundles the entire run of the show with the prequel/sequel/sidequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, it also includes around 90 minutes of long sought-after deleted and alternate scenes, culled from the nearly five hours’ worth of footage that David Lynch shot for the latter movie. Over the years, numerous petitions have been created demanding that footage be released; some fans have even resorted to crafting reconstructions from the shooting script. But now they can wrap those in plastic and toss ’em—along with all their previous Twin Peaks box sets—thanks to this new collection overseen by Lynch himself.

“During the last days in the life of Laura Palmer many things happened, which have never been seen before,” Lynch said of this 90 minutes of footage, in which Laura presumably listens to James sing some of the new songs he’s working on, and then there are maybe two minutes of owls.


Anyway, you can actually check out some of that deleted footage in this trailer hosted by Entertainment Weekly, which also features some pretty good clips of David Bowie acting like a crazy person.
