The Fame icon made a guest appearance as FBI Agent Phillip Jeffries in the 1992 film spin-off of the supernatural series, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and according to co-star Harry Goaz, Bowie had been invited back to join director David Lynch's upcoming TV reboot.

However, the superstar died in January (16), before he could reprise his small role, Goaz revealed to the Dallas Morning News.

The Twin Peaks revamp will reunite Goaz with original castmates Kyle MACLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Michael Horse, Sheryl Lee, and Peggy Lipton, while Ashley Judd, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried, Laura Dern, and Jennifer Jason Leigh are among a host of stars who have been added to the supernatural show.

Goaz, who portrays awkward Sheriff's Deputy Andy Brennan, recently completed production on his scenes on location in Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles, but he admits he still has no idea what the new series is about, because cast members were only given portions of the script, which were immediately shredded after filming.

"We only received our lines the morning of shooting," he told the Dallas Morning News. "We didn't even receive lines for our entire scenes."

The new episodes of Twin Peaks will debut on America's Showtime network in 2017.

The original series, which revolved around the mysterious death of small town high school sweetheart Laura Palmer, was cancelled in 1991 after just two seasons. It has since become a cult TV phenomenon.
