I have to admit, I have reported and examined a lot of stories since joining Following the Nerd. This is probably tied first for the worst.
In a recent interview today at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Mark Frost announced that Twin Peaks would not be coming to television screens, until 2017.
For those who are unaware, Twin Peaks tells the tale of a small town near the Canadian border, struggling to cope with the death of a local girl. There is a lot more to the plot, but not only would that spoil the show, it would also take forever to explain why it all happens.
During the interview, Frost stated, “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,” 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”.
I have only recently gotten into Twin Peaks, but have found myself quite entranced by the show’s absolute insanity. It is disappointing to learn that I will have to wait even longer than expected for the show to return. I’m going to need a lot of coffee and cherry pie to cheer me up now.
