During Twin Peaks (2017) David Bowie made multiple cameos as Agent Phillip Jeffries using flashbacks to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992), after the singer lost his 18 month battle with cancer in 2016.

A Reddit AMA yesterday with Sabrina Sutherland, executive producer of the David Lynch series, revealed that Bowie gave his approval for cameos of his Agent Phillip Jeffries to be used in the new series. Upon being asked if Bowie knew “how his character was going to be tackled”, Sutherland replied: ““Bowie did give us permission to use his clips in this season.”

This is significant because in an interview last year with the Dallas Morning News, actor Harry Goaz (Deputy Andy Brennan in the original Twin Peaks), revealed that Bowie was set to reprise the Agent Jeffries role before his death.

Other guests on Twin Peaks (2017) included: Nine Inch Nails, Au Revoir Simone, Sharon Van Etten, Moby, Sky Ferreira, Hudson Mohawke, the Chromatics, Julee Cruise, and Eddie Vedder.
