After The X-Files, Full House, MacGyver and Gilmore Girls, the wave of nostalgia currently washing over US TV is set to continue in 2017 as more cult shows return to the small screen.

Twin Peaks

After 25 years off radar, the small town of Twin Peaks in Washington is returning to the small screen. Twin Peaks, created by filmmaker David Lynch, will still have plenty of mysteries in store for viewers when it returns for a third season on Showtime on an as yet unknown date.

Kyle MacLachlan, the unforgettable FBI agent Dale Cooper, will be back for the new episodes, which also stars Monica Bellucci, Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laura Dern and Amanda Seyfried.

Prison Break

In 2009, fans of the Fox prison drama saw Michael Scofield, the hero played by Wentworth Miller since 2005, meet a sticky end. But thanks to the magic of television, the famous tattoo-clad prisoner will be returning to Fox this spring with a 10-episoide S5 miniseries.

His brother, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell), Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) and T-Bag (Robert Knepper), will also return for the series comeback.

There’ll be no room for nostalgia in this 24 reboot. Three years after Jack Bauer’s last outing, the show is set to introduce a new hero, Eric Carter, played by Corey Hawkins, the young star of the biopic NWA: Straight Outta Compton. Fearing retaliation after a tricky mission in Yemen, Eric Carter calls on the Washington DC anti-terrorist cell and its former director, who happens to be married to a senator in the midst of a presidential campaign.

Star Trek Discovery

It has been more than 10 years since a new Star Trek series has aired on TV. The saga is due to return in May with a new team headed by Malaysian actress Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Tomorrow Never Dies), Anthony Rapp (The Knight) and Doug Jones (The Strain).

In North America, the show will screen on CBS All Access, the VOD platform of US network CBS. It’ll be on Netflix for the rest of the world.
