Lynch may have told people they were going to be in the scripts way back when, and things still could have fallen through later on (Sherilyn??).
While nothing is certain before an actor appears on set and is filming, I think there are certain people who will most assuredly be in the show. Were Jack Nance alive, I'm confident he'd be in the new season of Twin Peaks. We already have confirmation of Harry Dean Stanton--another frequent Lynch collaborator. I would assume that Charlotte Stewart is a given, considering her relationship with Lynch. And, of course Catherine E. Coulson.
I was present at an even last November with Catherine, which I wrote about here
. For what it's worth I had no input to the clickbaity title. Granted this was before Lynch's departure from and subsequent return to the project, but considering the history of the Log Girl character, and their long standing friendship--with Lynch offering her advice about Margaret's motivations, even in episodes he didn't direct--I can't imagine seeing Twin Peaks without her.
And even though there has been a lot of noise about Sherilyn Fenn, she did recently tweet that the "seemingly endless" issues would be resolved. And, like other participants, she has signed a non-disclosure. Of any of the major characters she seems the biggest worry at the moment. But Lynch did not replace Fenn in FWWM because he believed there never could be another Audrey.
And if even the smallest roles (Toad, Heidi) are being incorporated, I can't imagine the story without one of it's key players. I have confidence that if envisioned for the story, Lynch and Frost will do whatever they can to secure cast participation.
