David Lynch Back On Board TWIN PEAKS Revival

Peaks

The twists and turns on the bumpy road to Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival are already worthy of the show’s iconic plot mazes. After distancing himself from the project over apparent budget issues in April, Peaks mastermind David Lynch announced the limited series is back on track. 

Lynch tweeted today that the limited series set for 2016 is actually happening (again), this after he made a public and very abrupt withdrawal via Twitter, citing the cable network would not give him the budget he needed to get the episodes done. Showtime confirmed all was set to go with Lynch in the director’s chair for the entire series, which will run longer than the previously announced nine episode run:

 

The series, set 25 years after the Peaks‘ final cliffhanger episode, had star Kyle MacLachlan signed up to return as Agent Dale Cooper plus all the completed scripts were turned in to Showtime before the big Lynchian bump in the road was hit.

MacLachlan took to Twitter following Lynch’s announcement:

Mädchen Amick, who played Double R Diner waitress Shelly Johnson in the show, thanked fans for their support:

So rejoice fellow fans, Lynch and Showtime have kissed and made up. There are undoubtedly more details to be revealed on the behind-the-scenes drama and hopefully further announcements of returning cast members.
