Yesterday saw Twin Peaks fans denied a 2016 cup of coffee with news that Showtime had officially pushed its revival to 2017, but the delay might be worth the wait to return additional alum. Miguel Ferrer is the latest original Twin Peaks star heading back into town for David Lynch’s revival, even as Showtime attempts to keep everything under wraps.
Showtime’s forthcoming Twin Peaks revival has been through a few notable ups and downs since its announcement, nearly losing creator David Lynch, then potentially doubling in size, and all with an uncertain premiere date. Now, despite Showtime’s past optimism for 2016, it looks like that damn fine cup of coffee will have to wait until 2017.
Details of Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival remain under lock and key in the Black Lodge, but that hasn’t stopped a number of major castings from bubbling up like some damn fine coffee. Hateful Eight star Jennifer Jason Leigh is the latest confirmed for our new Twin Peaks, with former David Lynch collaborator Naomi Watts also circling a role.
Most of Showtime’s Twin Peaks has remained under wraps, per creator David Lynch’s wishes, but already our first major casualty of the revival may have arrived. Michael Ontkean has declined to reprise his role as Twin Peaks sheriff Harry S. Truman, and Robert Forster may step into the role.
Filming on Twin Peaks has officially begun, enough so that David Lynch asks photographers not to spoil anything from the set, so we wouldn’t expect new footage just yet? Either way, The Man From Another Place is back in a new teaser, so reverse the audio, and let’s rock!
A sad day for fans of Catherine Coulson and Twin Peaks alike, as the actress behind one of the most iconic, if understated characters has passed away. The frequent David Lynch collaborator was also known for her work as a camera assistant, and was expected to reprise her role for Showtime’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival.
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!
As inherent to Twin Peaks’ success as the central mystery of Laura Palmer was, there’s no arguing that the original ABC series ran amid a much less spoiler-phobic culture. Now that Showtime’s revival has begun setting up shop however, creator David Lynch has asked that fans avoid observing production, or any possible Twin Peaks spoilers therein.
Last we heard from Showtime’s Twin Peaks, production had begun gearing up for a September shoot that could potentially place new episodes as early as 2016, but little beyond David Lynch and Kyle MacLachlan have been confirmed to return. Now, at least, we know composer Angelo Badalamenti will return to score the series, affording another notable bit of continuity.
Production on Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival has proven almost as much of a mystery as the series itself, first losing, then regaining David Lynch, with some rumors putting an episode count as high as 18. Now, Showtime at least confirms production due to begin, offering other insight on its premiere and episode order.
