Showtime president David Nevins is one lucky television executive — he’s seen nearly a half-hour of the new “Twin Peaks” series, which he confirmed Tuesday (Jan. 12) at the 2016 TCA winter press tour is about halfway done shooting and will debut in the first half of 2017.

“I’ve seen 25 minutes of [filmed] scenes. I have not seen entire, assembled episodes — there are no assembled episodes yet — but we got a sort of feel for various characters,” says Nevins, adding that the footage blew him away.

“It was stupendous … it was incredibly exciting. I don’t want to sit here and over-hype, but it was incredibly exciting. You definitely felt like you were in the hands of a master.”

Nevins laughs when asked if he gave creator David Lynch any tweaks — “no notes” — and adds that no official casting announcements are coming any time soon.

One more year, “Twin Peaks” fans.
