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.
