Twin Peaks Starts Filming In September - Airdate Still Unconfirmed
Showtime boss David Nevins was at the network’s TCA Summer Press Tour 2015 event today and was able to give fans a bit more information about the upcoming revival of Twin Peaks.
"Shooting starts in September. The donut truck is loaded late August. A coffee cup will indeed come through a window." Nevins told the panel, adding that the show is largely cast with familiar faces as well as some big surprises, and that David Lynch and Mark Frost are approaching the project 'as one long movie.'
On the rumoured episode count, Nevins was a little more vague. “I expect it to be more than 9, but it’s open-ended.” As for the recent rumours of the revival being pushed back to 2017, he added “I’m hoping 2016. I want it as badly and as soon as the biggest fans want it.” Apparently nothing more could be confirmed “because it’s David Lynch." He also confirmed that he doesn't give Lynch Notes, rather they have 'conversations' because Lynch ultimately he has creative control.
Nevins also touched upon the issues Twin Peaks faced earlier this year, stating that he never had a doubt Twin Peaks would happen. The problem was indeed the budget as Showtime had originally budgeted for nine episodes.
So not definitely 2017, but not necessarily 2016. But with Twin Peaks starting filming next month, fans can be assured that the David-Lynch directed revival is definitely happening.
