A quarter century after Agent Dale Cooper got trapped in the Black Lodge, "Twin Peaks" returned Sunday and broke Showtime subscription records.

That day, Showtime offered episodes 1 and 2 of the 18-episode reboot to regular subscribers.

But it then immediately released episodes 3 and 4 only to people who've signed up for streaming, including through Showtime Anytime, Showtime On Demand and Showtime on Hulu.

The decision to release episodes 3 and 4 early to streamers apparently generated interest.

"The network said it sparked the single biggest day and weekend of signups ever," according to Deadline.

(Editors' note: Showtime is owned by CBS, CNET's parent company.)
