The long-awaited return of Twin Peaks has come and gone, and viewers are still trying to figure out just what it was they were watching for 18 episodes. The ending certainly didn't pull any punches and it's up for debate whether or not the ending was a cliffhanger or not. Regardless, people are already talking about a potential new season of the show. There doesn't seem to be much serious talk about it at the moment, and David Lynch isn't quite sure what's in store. If there will be a fourth season, we shouldn't expect it to get here anytime soon. According to Lynch...
It's too early to say if there will be a fourth season of the series. If that were the case, we would have to wait a few more years because it took me four and a half years to write and film this.
People have been wondering about the future of Twin Peaks for some time now and were likely hoping that the finale of Season 3 would fill in some blanks. In true David Lynch fashion, Twin Peaks didn't feel like answering any questions, so what are the chances that it'll be coming back? Lynch, who infamously never answers questions about his work, doesn't seem to know yet. While supporting his "Small Stories" exhibition at the Belgrade Cultural Center in Serbia, Lynch appeared via Skype and told the audience (via Danas) that if a new season were to happen, it would be quite a few years before it would premiere. After all, it took him four and a half years to just do the one season.
As to whether or not another season should or should not happen is up for debate. There's definitely an argument to made that Season 3 said all that was needed to be said and there's no need for a new season. On the other hand, people have no less than one million questions about everything that happened (or didn't happen). Even Kyle MacLachlan doesn't get what happened! However, I doubt a new season of Twin Peaks would deliver those answers. If anything, it'll just create even more questions with no answers.
Twin Peaks: The Return was a major topic of conversation within the film community throughout its whole run, so one can understand if Showtime is considering another season. Twin Peaks was good business for Showtime. The series was its most-watched new show ever and it drove up subscriber numbers. Supposedly, there haven't been any conversations about a new season, but the question is still floating in the air like a weird BOB cloud.
We don't know what the future has in store for Twin Peaks, but stick with CinemaBlend and we'll let you know new information as soon as it's available. In the meantime, there's still lots of good TV on the way, so stay in touch with our fall season guide.
