Is David Lynch Preparing a New Twin Peaks?

By Jesus Diaz on at

Twin Peaks marked a before-and-after moment in TV history: for the first time someone used film production values for TV, with perfect script, direction, acting, and cinematography. Laura Palmer's murder took over the world and, over time, it became a masterpiece. Now, we may be getting a new season.

That has always been the rumour among fans — but it never happened. Only a special Blu-ray edition — Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery— was released this summer to commemorate its anniversary. It included deleted scenes restored by co-creator and director David Lynch himself. Clearly, he got back into it.

Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost tweeted what may be a veiled announcement of a new Twin Peaks series coming up:



If you are fan, you know that both "That gum you like is going to come back in style", and "damn good coffee" are iconic quotes from the series.

So where I am getting at? The truth Harry. Because that's my job.

It looks to me like they are hinting that something is coming. Knowing that they just released the Blu-ray pack with great success and the current audience appetite for high quality television drama — exemplified by Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, or True Detective — it makes sense to see a comeback of the series that started the TV revolution. And it makes sense to see it happening somewhere like Netflix, where the Twin Peaks cult feels at home.

I sure hope it's true, Diane.
