David Lynch is bringing Twin Peaks back to the Cannes Film Festival.

Twenty-five years after he first debuted 1992’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me to unfavorable reviews, the acclaimed Oscar-nominated filmmaker returns to the legendary French film festival with the highly anticipated reboot for Showtime.

This morning, Cannes announced the full lineup for its 2017 installment, which is set to take place from May 17-28th, and it was confirmed that two episodes of the series will premiere as part of the festival’s 70th anniversary events.

Other highlights of the lineup include new films by Sofia Coppola (The Beguiled), Noah Baumbach (The Meyerowitz Stories), Todd Haynes (Wonderstruck), Michael Haneke (Happy End), Bong Joon-ho (Okja), and Yorgos Lanthimos (The Killing of a Sacred Deer). What’s more, back-to-back Oscar-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu also returns with a new VR project titled, Carne y arena.

Consult the full lineup below and try to remember that you’ll see Twin Peaks on Sunday, May 21 via Showtime.
