Unseen footage from the famous TV series, “Twin Peaks,” spin-off feature film, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me," will now be released in a box set on July 29, according to Entertainment Weekly.

More than 90 minutes of deleted scenes have reportedly been added and the series’ original creator and director, David Lynch, has also filmed new material for the release. The original series aired for two seasons followed by a prequel film in 1992.

"During the last days in the life of Laura Palmer many things happened, which have never been seen before," Lynch reportedly said, in a statement. "They're here now alongside the new transfer of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Twin Peaks, the television series."

“Twin Peaks,” created by Lynch and produced by Mark Frost, is a surreal crime thriller set in a picturesque American town, which is ripped apart by the murder of girl-next-door Laura Palmer, played by Sheryl Lee, who is found dead, wrapped in plastic, on a riverbank. The series became an instant international hit triggering a global marketing campaign based on the question: "Who killed Laura Palmer?" And, in one of the iconic finale scenes of the TV series in 1991, Palmer says: “I will see you again in 25 years.”

“Twin Peaks” also starred Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper; Michael Ontkean as the town's sheriff Harry S. Truman; and Peggy Lipton as Norma Jennings, owner of the Double-R Diner.

"There's a beautiful thing about a diner. Your mind can go into dark places, but you can always return to the warmth and comfort of a well-lit diner. It's a nice place to think," Lynch reportedly said, during an appearance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, talking about one of his favorite settings in the story.
