We live in an age where every ‘90s TV show you love is getting revived, but a third season of Twin Peaks still manages to feel like something special. After all, the soapy and surreal series laid the groundwork for the golden age of modern television a decade before The Sopranos...and then it ended its run on an unresolved cliffhanger. So the news that the show was returning in 2016 was greeted with waves of internet optimism and excitement. Well, grab yourself a damn fine cup of coffee and get comfortable, because it’s now starting to look like 2017.
The full nature of Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival remains somewhat unclear, even after David Lynch returned to the project, but one certainty remains a wealth of characters and now-famous stars eyed to return. A new report suggest The X-Files’ own David Duchovny will trade revivals for a Twin Peaks appearance as well, reprising his role as cross-dressing DEA agent Denise Bryson.
Twin Peaks fans breathed a collective sigh of relief at news that Showtime had re-secured creator David Lynch for the 2016 revival, potentially even expanding the nine-episode order. Now, returning cast members claim that Showtime’s Twin Peaks return has grown to a whopping 18 episodes, and recreated one of its most famous locales to do it.
Like 25 years in the Black Lodge, Twin Peaks fans have been in limbo over the past month upon learning that creator David Lynch might walk away from the Showtime project. Now, Lynch confirms that the issues have been resolved for his return, putting Twin Peaks at peak weird for its 2016 return, with even more episodes to boot.
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.
A 'Twin Peaks' revival has been something of a long-running joke since the show's 1991 ABC cancellation, with rumors emerging of a return every so often for the last 25 years, but you may want to put down that damn good coffee. Showtime has officially confirmed that David Lynch will return us to 'Twin Peaks' in 2016 for new episodes, picking up where the cult series last left off in the early '90s.
In 1986, David Lynch released his surreal mystery film 'Blue Velvet,' reuniting him with his 'Dune' star Kyle MacLachlan. The film follows a college student who finds a human ear in a field and proceeds to launch an investigation that leads him into the dark criminal underworld, lorded over by Frank Booth (the dearly departed Dennis Hopper). We take a look back at the film, which earned Lynch his second Academy Award nomination for directing, to see what the cast is up to now.
Last week, we heard a surprising-if-unreliable rumor that David Lynch's legendary spookfest 'Twin Peaks' was being eyed for a revival on NBC, to either pick up where things left off on a season 2 cliffhanger, or bring the story into the modern day. The rumors of a 'Twin Peaks' revival seem largely to have been de-bunked, but has the rumor now inspiried actual development from NBC? New 'Twin Peaks' scoop inside!
Once upon a time, Agent Dale Cooper investigated the paranormal goings-on of a sleepy suburban town, and coffee and fire-walking were the water-cooler chats that got TV fans going. We're talking of course of the legendary 'Twin Peaks,' which some years ago went down in TV history for its shockingly bizarre, and tragically-truncated series finale. Now, rumblings that series creator and eccentric director David Lynch might be working on a 'Twin Peaks' revival for NBC, but is there any truth to the rumors?
