Twin Peaks Filming Locations
North Bend landed on the map in 1990 when Mark Frost and David Lynch turned the town into Twin Peaks for the popular TV series that later gained a devoted, worldwide fan following. According to Wikipedia, Twin Peaks is often listed among the greatest television series of all time, and considered a landmark tuning point in TV drama.
Filming returned to North Bend in 2017 when Twin Peaks relaunched on Showtime. Fans filled downtown North Bend to catch a glimpse of filming inside Twede's Cafe, which received the current baby blue paint job for its return to the small screen. Shhh...Agent Cooper is still known to pop in sometimes.
