Yeah, it's about time for this to happen. I eagerly await the "30 Something" revival.
Oh wait. That's every show on television.
Kinda like how David Lynch has had such a strong and nebulous influence that we've had Twin Peaks shows since... and most of them are better than Twin Peaks was. Can't blame them for trying to cash in. At the same time, you can't go home again.
2018: The X Files, Son Of Scully. ONLY ON STARZ.
If it's on Starz then it's guaranteed that Scully's son gets anally probed every episode.
Edit: Added oblig video.
To my mind the only bad thing Lynch has ever done was Inland Empire, and it wasn't so much that it was bad, more that it wasn't what I wanted. I wanted more narrative, Lynch didn't want that. Unless love is truly over and the world is a dark abyss of nothingness, I can't imagine how this could be bad.
My reluctance comes from my dislike of or better yet disappointment in season 2.Granted I'm not a huge fan of Lynch but I did enjoy Twin Peaks, Eraserhead and Dune. I've never gone out of my way to see his work. Maybe someday.Spoiler:
Sign me up for a second slice of pie and Shelly please.
Hey, at least she beat her anorexia/bulemia.
It is strange how she can have a fat head and chickenlegs. But at least liposuction > fingers down the throat. Good on her.
Well I'm in. They just released the complete series on Blu-Ray also.
I remember watching the last episode (one of the few Lynch took a hand in) and thinking it can't end like that. With just 9 episodes and hopefully no James Hurley the story should be more focused this time.Mark Frost: At the time, we were doing whatever we could to get ABC to say yes to a third season. That was very much part of our thinking. It turned out to be a pretty good stopping place, if it had never gone anywhere else, it had at least had an exclamation point at the end of it. Now we have a chance to write the next sentence.
1st season was some of the best television ever.
Kyle MacLachlan Set for Twin Peaks Revival, More Original Cast Expected
The actor appeared on stage during the cable network’s presentation at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, saying, “I’m very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of Twin Peaks.”
He then joked, “May the forest be with you.”
Fans have been clamoring for the actor to join the project since news of its 9-episode order broke in October. The present-day continuation of the eerie ’90s series will be written by creators David Lynch and Mark Frost; Lynch will direct every installment.Spoiler:
Great news; Even greater news that Lynch will be heavily involved.
Dang Kyle looks old! It is so strange since he had such a youthful look in the 80s and 90s. Get some botox for those crows feet stat!
Find a way to have Chris Isaak back please! Also Moira Kelly (Donna in Fire Walk With Me) > Lara Flynn Boyle (Donna in the show).
Just ordered this Blu-Ray set today. Kind of forgot about it. Looking forward to it.
Well, fuck. This sucks. I did hear a month or two ago there was some dispute over bluray money or something, was hoping it would have gotten worked out though.
No Lynch, no Twin Peaks
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
If he loves the series that much, he could always co-invest in the production(its not like he cant afford it). I doubt it will crash and burn since anyone born in the 70s-early 80s would throw money at their childhood nostalgia.
I've read it's more about casting (old and new) and production money, like Showtime want a tight deal but Lynch is more like a "let's guest star anyone coming from Twin Peaks and don't bother me with putting an executive producer up my ass watching my every move" thing. It's David Lynch, I guess he wanted to have some control, and Showtime didn't feel like it.
Considering that none of the actors from Twin Peaks are "super stars" I doubt it would run as much as Friends did per episode.
From a money and (not so) recent history perspective, it's pretty difficult, as the accountant at a TV channel, to sign a blank check to David Lynch. He does not exactly scream "bankable" and since Mulholland Drive in 2001, he did a lot of odd stuff for his web site, a 3h long movie that was a beautiful mess (Inland Empire - 2006) and a documentary on transcendental meditation (Meditation, Creativity, Peace - 2013). There is a strong "this could turn out great, but might also turn out terrible for both the ratings and the critics" vibe going on, so they probably don't want to put a big price tag on a pile of uncertainty.
Yeah it's quite spot on, David Lynch isn't the kind of guy you'd want as a TV showrunner with executive powers, even if he brings money on the table. Also a TV show revival is always a pain in the ass casting wise because you have to deal with former stars who know they're becoming valuable, actual stars who want a piece of the cake, and there's a lot of unknown stuff which could happen at some point. I think it's pretty safe to assume Lynch dropped the ball because he wouldn't have the control he wanted.
Peggy Lipton (Norma Jennings) was probably my very first MILF crush. The rest of the girls (especially Mädchen or however her name is spelled) were also very crush-worthy. But as much as I love women, I have to say it was Kyle McLcugognhdashfæadh that really pulled the show together. And while I am disappointed Lynch won't be back stage on this, I think it still all hangs on Kyle being in it, and being well written.
I'll also be waiting for all the coffee gags. I still use the phrase "black as midnight on a moonless night" whenever I can.
David Lynch Confirms Twin Peaks Return at Showtime, With Additional Episodes | Comicbook.com
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch announced on Twitter today that he and Showtime have come to terms and he will indeed be returning to the planned third season of the cult hit drama.
"Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ..... It is !!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network," the filmmaker wrote.
Following a budgetary disagreement, Lynch announced that he was leaving the project, and Showtime said that they hoped to work it out but implied that the series could go forward without Lynch if needed. It appears the disagreement has been ironed out, and that Showtime has committed to producing more than the nine episodes originally ordered -- an interesting change, since Lynch had reportedly already turned in his scripts for the nine episodes in question.
"This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever," Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement. "Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally-announced nine hours. Pre-production starts now!!”
The series will bring back Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. villain Kyle Maclachlan as Special Agent Dale Cooper, an eccentric FBI agent who followed a baffling case out to a strange small town and found more mystery than he bargained for. It's been off the air for two decades now, having lasted only two seasons in spite of being generally regarded as one of the best TV shows ever made.
Great news! Glad it all got worked out.
glad they got that worked out, would have been pointless to make a show like that without the crazy ass director who originally made it. also sad panda at kyle maclachlan only being known as a villain on agents of shield.
Pretty excited! X Files and Twin Peaks. Nerd heaven.
How much of the cast is going to look normal? only actors I think I ever see is Ray Wise, Ashbrook, and Kyle are normal. Madchen was still pretty cute when she was on an episode of Psych

I'm a huge X-Files fan, but never seen an episode of Twin Peaks. I've been told this is blasphemy of sorts.
How does it hold up today? Is it watchable still?
Sup, Monica. Don't forget to register at re rerolled
I tried giving it a watch a few months ago. I made it a couple episodes into Season 2 and just gave up. *shrug*
I have a VHS box set of the serie! That said, I am not sure I would dare see it again because I doubt it aged well. I would also not dare to rewatch Fire Walk With Me (the movie set before the serie - and I don't mean the pilot that got extended into a TV movie), because I adored that movie as a teenager and I am not sure I would still adore it.
The film is all over the place but has it's moments too. Remember this?
Twin Peaks Reboot Will Film 18 Episodes, Plus More New Details!
Original stars Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee shared updated information about the project at a convention this past weekend, including the fact that the reboot has been bumped up from its original nine-episode order to 18 episodes.
Pretty sure Madchen is the only decent looking one from the show

I watched this for the first time sometime last year. The first season was great, the second season was a mix of mediocre, awful and some ok stuff.
Fixing to watch the original for the first time, are Season 1 & 2 not connected? Always heard season 1 was phenomenal & 2 was "whatever". Can I skip the whatever?
Don't skip season 2. Its not awful. And the finale is fantastic.
The beginning of S2 has a total change in tone, it is weird. That's because Lynch was off bangin cocktail waitresses two at a time or something. The ending is super-epic though.
BTW I had not kept up and didn't realize that Lynch and Showtime worked it out and he is on board. Thank god.
Finished season 1 & I am 14 episodes through the 22 (too many fucking episodes) of season 2. Season one was fantastic, see what everyone was saying about it being ahead of it's time. Even by today's standards, it is really, really good. Season 2 has been, kinda all over the place. Certainly watches more like a soap opera, and hasn't been much like season 1 so far. It's been fairly average, aside from the tidbits here-and-there of supernatural shit. Finishing it up for this apparent finale, really wanna see the borderline miracle they pull wrapping up season 2. At the end of the day I have really liked it, it's worth a watch for sure. That being said I loved Mulholland Dr etc...
Seyfried for some reason seems like a perfect fit to the Twin Peaks universe, she has her oddness to her.
It's still a year away, but they are in production...
I can't wait.
