It may not be the official Twin Peaks Day, as recognized by the state of Washington (which falls on 28 February, when Special Agent Dale Cooper arrived in the fictional titular town), but today nonetheless marks the 30th anniversary of the seminal, surreal television series.

Twin Peaks premiered on 08 April 1990, and in its turbulent two seasons on the ABC network transformed serialized television to such an extent that it became a genuine pop culture and cult phenomenon. Indeed, such was its cultural impact that the show was resurrected in 2017 for a Limited Event Series on Showtime.
