Twin Peaks Delayed Until 2017?
More on Twin Peaks
The Twin Peaks revival has been a rollercoaster for fans. First its return on Showtime was announced in October 2014. Then David Lynch dramatically left the project in April of this year. Then he returned a month later. First it was nine scripts, now its eighteen and apparently no one has actually been contracted except for Dale Cooper himself Kyle MacLachlan, despite almost every surviving actor expressing passionate desire to return. Now fans have learned that the show will be back a whole year than originally planned.
Talking to Baseball Hall Of Fame, producer and co-creator Mark Frost discussed his work on Twin Peaks, throwing this announcement into the mix...
“We had 32 hours back in 1991-92, and with my partner David Lynch we kind of blew open that genre of the nighttime soap and took it in a whole other direction. A lot of people always look back at Twin Peaks and say that was the start of this explosion we’ve had in good television drama, but we did it in a time when there were still only three networks."
One the show's revival, Frost said "the challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time. We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”
A later than originally-planned date actually makes sense, considering the contract delays with David Lynch and the extension of episodes from nine to eighteen. Frustrating news for some, but better late than never. In the meantime, Frost is writing a Twin Peaks book, which will be released in 2016, set between seasons two and three.
