Nearly 25 years after its disappearance, the cult classic drama "Twin Peaks" is returning to television.

After a host of teases, CBS' Showtime on Monday said it will revive the widely followed series for nine episodes in 2016. ABC canceled it after two seasons.

Showtime said the new show will provide long-awaited answers and conclusions for the shows' passionate fan base. "Twin Peaks" creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will co-write and produce the new episodes.

"What more can I say—TWIN PEAKS with David Lynch and Mark Frost on Showtime in 2016," Showtime President David Nevins said in a statement. "To quote Agent Cooper, 'I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.'"

Set in the present day, the series will continue the storylines developed in the second season. As a part of the deal, the network plans to re-air the first two seasons of the original show leading up to the premiere of the limited series.

The network did not disclose which characters would return to the show.
