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.
