Well, this is one way to reboot a beloved cult TV series: pack in as many interesting people as possible.

Showtime announced today that David Lynch’s new Twin Peaks revival, set to debut in 2017 and taking place 25 years after the original, has finished with principal photography. Alongside that revelation, the network also published the full cast of the series—and it’s MASSIVE.

Joining Kyle MacLachlan, who starred in the original as FBI Agent Dale Cooper and was the only cast member announced before today, is an eclectic mix of returners and newcomers. Among those reprising their Twin Peaks appearances are Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Mädchen Amick, Peggy Lipton, David Duchovny, Michael Horse, Grace Zabriskie, Dana Ashbrook, Miguel Ferrer, Everett McGill and David Lynch himself.

The list of first-timers boasts an impressive array of bona fide stars, and not just regular actors: Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Sky Ferreira and Eddie Vedder are going to appear in some form or another. We’ll also see Amanda Seyfried, Michael Cera, Jim Belushi, Ashley Judd, Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore, among many, many others.

So it appears that the chief question of the Twin Peaks reboot will be this: how the hell are all of these people going to fit into a coherent plot? Knowing David Lynch, though, there’s a good answer.
