Wanna watch David Lynch eat a donut? Yes? Okay, cool. Just checking.

The creator of Twin Peaks is, obviously, returning to spearhead the revival series coming to Showtime later next year, but he’s also back as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole. The network announced the character in a new teaser video, which mostly focuses on his snacking skills.

dchen Amick will return as Shelly for the revival, which also features Ray Wise, Alicia Witt, Warren Frost, Dana Ashbrook, Sherilyn Fenn, David Duchovny, James Belushi, Chrysta Bell, Robert Knepper, Michael Cera, Eddie Vedder, Amanda Seyfried, Tom Sizemore, Balthazar Getty, Naomi Watts, and Laura Dern, among others.

Twin Peaks will return sometime in early 2017 on Showtime. Watch the video of Lynch’s return below:
