If you come up with a thousand different ways to describe David Lynch, you’ll arrive at “intentionally cryptic” well before you get to “straightforward.” And so it goes with the return of Twin Peaks, which Lynch has suddenly become more hesitant to speak about with certainty.
The actor has been in all kinds of headlines concerning his possible return to the X-Files universe, but some of us are a little more interested in hearing about whether or not his transgender DEA agent would be coming back for Showtime’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival.
Somebody find the Log Lady and tell her carve us up some pie, because the upcoming return of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks is bringing back a character that would be impossible to replace.
While most of the bigger problems in a thespian’s world are over in a relatively short amount of time, that definitely wasn’t the case for iconic genre actor Ray Wise, who played Leland Palmer on David Lynch’s classic Twin Peaks. His time was a little hairier than everyone else’s on the series, and you can read about his troubles here.
Ever since Showtime announced it would be returning to Twin Peaks, the show’s co-creator, Mark Frost, has been incredibly excited about the prospect. He’s given interviews teasing the new series and now he has another project in the works related to the hit show.
Last week, Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost announced that new episodes of the cult series are being produced for Showtime. Twin Peaks isn’t slated to hit the schedule until 2016, but we’ve already begun to learn about some potential castings.
Details on the new episodes of the hit series are being kept under wraps right now, but we do know that Frost and Lynch will write the limited event series, which will be set 25 years after the events that occurred in ABC’s primetime drama in the early nineties. With subscription cable comes a whole new opportunity to get weird, but we’re hopeful that Twin Peaks will nod at its past as it moves forward into its future.
I’m still having trouble believing that today isn’t just some extended lucid dream, with news dropping earlier that Showtime has ordered a new season of the classic drama Twin Peaks. While some of the series’ mysteries have remained unresolved for over two decades, we can take comfort in knowing how creators David Lynch and Mark Frost came to agree on returning to the surreal town for at least one more maddening journey.
Hopefully you are sitting down with some coffee that’s black as midnight on a moonless night. You’ll need it to process the information we are about to share with you. Twin Peaks is officially returning back to television via a limited event series. We have all the details, here.
Director David Lynch is known for being a cryptic genius, and he’s just figured out the best way to set the Internet on fire: post a tweet with quite possibly the most ominous quote from his cult mystery series Twin Peaks. But what could it mean?
Fans of David Lynch‘s cult mystery series Twin Peaks are finally getting their long-awaited day in the high-definition sun, as the massive Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery Blu-ray set will fire walk into stores on July 29, and it is definitely the most definitive collection we’ll ever get our hands on.
No details are confirmed just yet, but it’s rumored to be included in the special features for the upcoming Blu-ray set, which itself is rumored to be the most extensive home release Twin Peaks has ever seen, coming with the full series run, Fire Walk with Me, and quite a bit of deleted footage and other special features. With all that, it only makes sense that fans should receive some new footage, regardless of how minimal it might be. But then, very little makes sense in that town.
TV fans have seen a few rays of hope in the last year or so. Shows that were cancelled long ago have been given a reprieve in some form or another. Veronica Mars is headed to the big screen, thanks to a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. Meanwhile, in just a matter of weeks, Arrested Development will return with a new season after a seven-year hiatus. It seems almost too good to be true, and at the same time, it's given fans hope that maybe other gone-but-not-forgotten series have a shot at a comeback...
Don’t get too excited just yet, but there seem to be some rumors floating around that point to a possible return of the early 90s cult classic Twin Peaks. Of course, it’s not the first time that’s been suggested, but it sounds like the efforts to bring it back may actually be ramping up.
Through the darkness of future's past, the magician longs to see. One chants out between two worlds... "Fire... walk with me." David Lynch's unforgettable mystery drama is on sale and on the cheap today at Amazon. That's a damn good slice of television.
