Twin Peaks miniseries is returning to Showtime in 2016, now that’s some damn good coffee

October 6th, 2014 by Derek Robertson Comments

David Lynch has been rather demure on Twitter as of late. Now, as it turns out, himself and Mark Frost have confirmed that Twin Peaks will return in 2016, more than 25 years after the original show first premiered on ABC. It is thought that it will have a limited series run on for Showtime – there is a chance that it could air on June 10th 2016, as the prophecy fortold. Lynch will direct all episodes with both Lynch and Frost handling writing duties. According to Deadline, the all new Twin Peaks will be set in present day and will provide some of the long-awaited answers (over two decades folks, …) to some of the unanswered questions.

Unfortunately, there is no word on any of the original cast members returning. But it would be nice to see Kyle MacLachlan return – ever if it is just a cameo – as FBI agent Dale Cooper (no more coffee jokes, …well maybe one more, …). Cooper was the inspiration behind on of the most famous lines – #DamnGoodCoffee – in the show and it has been hash-tagged on twitter by the man himself – David Lynch.

On April 8th 1990, the viewing public were treated to a unique blend of the surreal and supernatural courtesy of ABC. It not only had a huge following, but it was also a critically acclaimed monolith. It was only when the show’s big mystery was revealed halfway through season two that the audience began to take a dip. You can catch both seasons by streaming them on Netflix and Hulu, and the prequel titled Fire Walk With Me, which was poorly received, is available on Redbox Instant Video.

Hopefully the new season keeps all the little idiosyncrasies and randomness intact as that was one of the highlights of the first season.

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
