As if the third series of 'Twin Peaks' wasn't hotly anticipated enough, now here's another reason to get excited: Naomi Watts is joining the cast.

That's according to Deadline, which reports that both Watts and Tom Sizemore ('Saving Private Ryan') will be on board when the series airs next year.

David Lynch – the series' director and co-creator – is also rumoured to be reprising his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole.

Lynch and Watts have worked together before – she starred in his 2001 thriller 'Mulholland Drive'. If true, Watts will join other rumoured recent additions to the 'Twin Peaks' cast including Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Amanda Seyfried.

The only cast member officially confirmed for the third series is Kyle MacLachlan, who'll reprise his role as the cherry pie-loving Special Agent Dale Cooper.

The new series comes more than 25 years after the second, so to say expectations are high would be an understatement. The original two series are a cult classic, and established Lynch as a true creative force.

The third series will air in 2017 on Showtime in the US. Thanks to a recent deal, it will air on Sky here in the UK.
