Twin Peaks devotees will have to wait a little bit longer than originally expected for the revival to make its way to television. Originally, Showtime was planning for the new season to make its premiere in 2016, but Twin Peaks creators David Lynch and Mark Frost wanted a bit more time to ensure the product was up to par with what they wanted.
“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 3 of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence,” Frost told Baseball Hall of Fame senior curator Tom Shieber while he was touring the Hall of Fame with his son. “We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime in 2017.” (Source: EW | Uproxx)
While the initial response from fans might be that of impatient disappointment, it’s reassuring to see that Lynch and Frost are determined to take as much time as possible to make sure that the return of Twin Peaks is one that will live up to expectations and prove a worthy continuation of the much-beloved series.
