Showtime Eyes ‘Twin Peaks’ Premiere in First Half of 2017
Showtime’s Twin Peaks has given us a bit of whiplash in its development, but may finally zero in on a 2017 premiere. According to network heads, David Lynch has gotten halfway through production, with an eye to air sometime before summer 2017.
Showtime boss David Nevins confirmed the Twin Peaks target window from the ongoing TCA press tour, though no new footage has yet been made available. Plenty of time remains, with half of production still unfolding up in Washington, though the series should air at some point in the first half of 2017, per official word.
David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost wrote the scripts, with Lynch confirmed to direct all episodes of the revival series, however many that turns out to be. Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and stars Madchen Amick and Dana Ashbrook have all been heavily rumored, along with Sherilyn Fenn, Miguel Ferrer, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer and new additions Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Forster, Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Knepper, Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty.
The original Twin Peaks saw Agent Dale Cooper arriving in the titular town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, only to find the mystery ran far deeper than he could ever expect, with a touch of the supernatural. The new iteration will pick up 25 years after the Season 2 finale in 1991, which saw MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper in a Black Lodge limbo.
Showtime may come forth with additional Twin Peaks details for 2017, but what do we make of the latest?
