Apparently “I’ll see you again in 25 years” doesn’t mean anything anymore.
The Twin Peaks revival series, originally slated to premiere in 2016 — exactly 25 years after the final season left off in 1991 — has been delayed.
What a big disappointment to fans, who were coffee-teased with the news months ago!
So was it all the disputes between Showtime and co-creator/director David Lynch? Or the logistical problems inherent in coming back a quarter century later?
Co-creator Mark Frost, who broke the news of the delay, explained:
“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 three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”
That’s a pretty vague explanation.
Maybe we need to have a backwards talking dream to understand the real reason…
Oh well, as long as the show goes on, we’re guessing the fans can forgive a little tardiness.
