Twin Peaks fans, the good news keeps on coming.

Amanda Seyfried is joining cast of the upcoming revival of the ’90s ABC cult classic, according to TVLine.

The site reports that she has landed a major role playing a pivotal – and brand-new! – character.

The gig will mark Seyfried’s big return to the small screen: The actress, 29, hasn’t starred in a TV series since HBO’s Big Love wrapped in 2011, though she’s kept busy acting in movies like Les Misérables and Ted 2.

TVLine reports that Brothers & Sisters alum Balthazar Getty has also signed on to the show.

Plans to revive the ABC cult classic derailed somewhat in April, when co-creator David Lynch announced he had walked away from the project, but the new Showtime series is now back on track with Lynch on board.

At the Television Critics Association panel in August, Showtime president David Nevins said fans “should be optimistic that the people you want will be there” – and he revealed will be “some surprises, in addition.”

The revival, which will be directed by Lynch, will include more than the originally announced nine episodes. No release date has been set for the series, but Nevins said he hopes it will be “sooner rather than later.”
