It has been a roller coaster of emotion since the revival of Twin Peaks was announced. Last week, co-creator David Lynch dropped out of directing all nine episodes due to budget negotiations.
Later that week, the Twin Peaks cast came in support of Lynch via video message asking him to return to the project!
Now, Showtime president David Nevins has given an update on the future of the crime drama — and it doesn't seem like they have anything positive to say.

Nevins confirmed that the status of the show's revival is mostly based on Lynch's interest in returning. When asked about Lynch's reason for departing the project, Nevins replied:
"It's either a negotiation, or he's had cold feet. But I am hopeful."
So, what's the status of the project now? Nevins only had this to say:
"We're in the middle of it. I can't say too much."
Hopefully, Showtime is doing what they can to get Lynch back on board. When they announced the revival last year, the premium cable network promised that Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost would have creative freedom in working on the project!
If it falls through, we're sure Netflix would be more than happy having Showtime's sloppy seconds. LOLz!
