Now that a détente has been reached between David Lynch and Showtime over the upcoming “Twin Peaks” revival, we can return to wondering just what’s going to be coming in the latest adventures of the cult TV show. And as promised, it will be bigger than anticipated.
During the “Twin Peaks” panel at Crypticon in Seattle, Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee revealed two big pieces of news: there will be eighteen new episodes of “Twin Peaks,” all directed by David Lynch, and his longtime collaborator Angelo Badalamenti would be composing all new music. Yep, we’ll take a slice of cherry pie to go with that. This effectively doubles the nine episodes that were announced when the Showtime deal was first revealed, and suggests this will be more than just your standard waltz through the past.
Production is scheduled to begin in September, and yes, Twede’s Café in North Bend, Washington will once again stand in for Double R’s diner. No airdate yet for this but I’d hazard a guess at late 2016. [Welcome To Twin Peaks]
