Special Agent Dale Cooper is officially coming back for the limited run of "Twin Peaks" on Showtime in 2016. The show's co-creator, David Lynch, confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan would reprise his role after the network and MacLachlan announced the news at TCA:

“I’m very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of Twin Peaks,” MacLachlan said to the crowd. “May the forest be with you.”

The cult classic show will return to TV for nine new episodes next year, which will coincide with the 25th anniversary of its two-year run on ABC. Showtime announced the news back in October. At the time, co-creator Mark Frost told TVLine that "Twin Peaks" will pick up where it left off. "The story continues," he said. "The seeds of where we go were planted where we've been."
