An eclectic cast including newcomers Naomi Watts, Richard Chamberlain, Jim Belushi, Michael Cera and Amanda Seyfried has been announced for the new series of the offbeat US drama Twin Peaks.

The Showtime channel released a complete cast list that also includes Twin Peaks veterans Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, David Duchovny and Harry Dean Stanton.

The new Twin Peaks returns to the scene of the crime, a quaint north-western town, 25 years after the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer.

Showtime said principal photography on Twin Peaks, from executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost, has wrapped. A date for the new series' 2017 premiere has yet to be announced.

Other newcomers to the show include Jennifer Jason Leigh, Ashley Judd, Laura Dern, Ernie Hudson and Tom Sizemore.
