Since the beginning of April, Twin Peaks fans have been waiting with bated breath for the outcome of the financially motivated feud that saw David Lynch leave the highly anticipated project. It would appear that Showtime heard the general outcry, not just from fans, but also from many original cast members, and decided renegotiation was the best course of action. After all, what would Twin Peaks be without Lynch? A tepid cup of coffee with a moldy slice of cherry pie, that's what.
"The rumors are not what they seem." With these tweeted words, David Lynch gave us some excellent news, revealing on Friday that he is back on board for the Twin Peaks revival to be aired next year.
Showtime also released a statement not only confirming Lynch as director but also serving the show up with a delicious side of even more episodes than expected:
This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever. Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Pre production starts now!
That's right, as if we weren't ecstatic enough about the news of Lynch's return, now they've gone and upgraded the coffee beans! As of now, we don't know how many more episodes have been added, but we're now sure to see over nine hours of mind-twistingly surreal, small-town goings on.
Twin Peaks is now coming together in full force with most of the original cast set to return, and with David Lynch now once more at the helm. 25 years is a long time to wait, but didn't we already know that was how it was meant to be?
According to Showtime, pre-production is starting now, and the show will be aired in 2017.
Are you brewing with excitement at the thought of Twin Peak's return?
