Showtime’s Twin Peaks Production Moving Forward. Twin Peaks creator David Lynch shocked fans yesterday with his statements regarding the uncertain future of the show. While speaking at the Between Two Worlds exhibit in the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane Australia, Lynch was asked if the return of Twin Peaks was still on. Lynch responded,
I don’t know. There are complications.
Afterwords, when asked about his contract Lynch stated,
I haven’t returned yet and we’re still working on the contract. But I love the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ and I love those characters.
All the Twin Peaks fans holding their collective breath can now breathe easy. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Showtime stated that the series is still on track. Showtime has reportedly received all of David Lynch’s scripts, greenlit Twin Peaks as a limited series and signed Kyle MacLachlan to return as Agent Cooper.
A source close to the show had this to say,
Nothing is going on that’s any more than any preproduction process with David Lynch. Everything is moving forward and everybody is crazy, thrilled and excited.
Lynch, a four time Oscar winner is currently signed to direct all 9 episodes and all indications point to his return not being if, but when. TWIN PEAKS is slated to go into production in 2015 and air on Showtime in 2016 (marking the 25th anniversary of when the program last aired). Set in the present day, TWIN PEAKS will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers for the series’ passionate fan base.
