The first two seasons of Twin Peaks, which had been streaming on Netflix in the U.S. since 2011, officially left the streamer on July 1st. But fans who haven’t finished watching them don’t need to worry, as seasons 1 and 2 of the mystery drama series are available to watch in a number of online platforms in the country.
Twin Peaks seasons 1 and 2, which originally aired on ABC from 1990 to 1991, are currently available to stream on Hulu, Paramount+, and Showtime. Meanwhile, Twin Peaks: The Return, the third season of the series which premiered in 2017, can only be seen on Showtime. As for the 1992 film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which serves as a prequel and sequel to the first two seasons of the series, that movie is streaming exclusively on HBO Max and The Criterion Channel.
While it’s possible that all TV episodes of Twin Peaks could live on the same streamer at some point in the future, the Twin Peaks feature film was produced by New Line Cinema, so it would be hard for the entire franchise to be in one place at the same time.
Created by Mark Frost and David Lynch, the original run of Twin Peaks follows FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and local Sheriff Harry S. Truman (Michael Ontkean) as they investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington. Though the show’s narrative draws on elements of detective fiction, it pays homage to American soap opera and horror tropes through its uncanny tone, supernatural elements, and campy, melodramatic portrayal of eccentric characters.
Twin Peaks isn’t the only beloved series that departed Netflix at the end of last month. The original run of The Twilight Zone also left the streaming giant on July 1st, along with the popular movies Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Crazy, Stupid, Love, Enter the Dragon, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Training Day, and the three Back to the Future films.
