Twin Peaks has etched a permanent place in pop culture, surely to grow by Showtime’s revival, but did you know David Lynch and Mark Frost got a greenlit pilot from only a ten minute meeting with ABC? Or that some of the show’s most famous scenes occurred by accident? Grab some damn fine coffee and a slice of cherry pie, and let the 23rd episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ take you through the sleepy town mysteries of Twin Peaks!
Well this is not great news. After months of excitement over the prospect of a Twin Peaks revival series with original creator David Lynch, it seems as though negotiations have fallen apart. What was once a promising development that would put Lynch back behind the camera for the first time in years has now become a disappointment, as Lynch has departed the project.
Showtime shocked us all with the announcement that ‘Twin Peaks’ would return as a series in 2016 under creator David Lynch, though predictably few details were available just yet. Now, the most burning question about the darkly surreal drama’s return has been answered, confirming Kyle MacLachlan’s reprisal of Dale Cooper.
Twin Peaks fans (or Peakenese we used to be called) got an early Christmas present with the announcement that the cult 90s classic would be returning to TV in 2016, 25 years after the original series wrapped its two-year run on ABC.
