I am guessing it will be the FWWM theme.

Get yourself on the record- what thinketh you?

The same theme as always.

I really doubt it will be "She Would Die for Love" (the FWWM theme). It's one of my favorite TP-related tracks, but I doubt they'll tie the series that closely to a track that only appeared in the film. I think it will either be "Falling" or something totally new.

My bet (and my hope) is for a new, fully-orchestrated version of "Falling." The heavy use of synth dates a lot of the TP tracks, despite their beautiful and timeless melodies. I'm hoping a lot of familiar themes get an orchestral treatment -- and of course that we get a ton of wild new music from Badalamenti and DKL! But I think the main title needs to be "Falling."

Maybe it'll be that slowed down version they've been using in promos.

I voted completely new, though.

completely co-signing your post.. "FWWM theme" is one of my favorites but my money is on an updated version of an instrumental "Falling", new arrangement, fully orchestrated. one of the shows strong selling points is nostalgia even if they have told us it will take us out of our "comfort zone" (yes please) but as far as theme music goes i think that's a good bet. The X-Files revival worked wonderful with the classic theme song and even the same intro. i would be suprised if the visuals stayed the same though (like XF), i think that is highly unlikely.

Here's my thinking-
1. Much of the show will not take place in Twin Peaks.

2. Lynch is calling this a movie, not a T.V. Series.

So my theory is that the tradition "Falling" theme will come on every time they come back to the town of Twin Peaks, but will not be used for the opening title sequence.

There is also the possibility that they use different themes for different Parts/Episodes.

I think you're overthinking this.

I'm hoping the opposite. I'd be disappointed if they went orchestral. The small jazz band sound of the original is such a huge part of what made it so great and original.

Falling in a title "slot" for first episode (not necessarily opening - there may be a cold open, maybe even a long one). For subsequent episodes, whatever fits the episode (sometimes open with different music, sometimes no music.

Second guess - some version of the original theme opening tacked onto each episode so as to not impinge on the narrative.

I hope it's the same music but updated footage. To me, the original opening is about the infinite passage of time. I love the idea that the waterfall has continued falling, all these years. And of course, the original music was perfect.

That being said, I'm prepared for anything. I'm not going to be disappointed if it's completely different.

That would be awesome.I have a feeling that only the first episode will have an opening sequence
