Let’s hope the coffee in Twin Peaks is still damn fine after the original pot from twenty-five years ago was warmed up, only to be let go cold again. David Lynch will make a fresh pot after all. The filmmaker has announced that the revival of the cult series is now definitely happening. “Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ….. It is !!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network,” Lynch tweeted on Friday night. Variety reports that Showtime president confirmed the news, adding that Lynch will direct every episode. Production will begin immediately.
Fans of the iconic, quirky mystery set in the Pacific Northwest campaigned to Save Twin Peaks after plans to revive the show reached an impasse over the budget. In March Lynch said there were “complications” in bringing the show back. As Variety sums up the story, “after Lynch and [co-writer Mark] Frost turned in the nine scripts they co-wrote, the cost of production rose significantly, according to sources, and Showtime asked the ‘Twin Peaks’ co-creators to trim their profits as a concession.” All parties have now reached a satisfactory arrangement.
