David Lynch Is Back On Board Showtime’s ‘Twin Peaks’ Revival Series

The last we heard, David Lynch left Showtime’s revival of Twin Peaks due to budgetary issues. It looks like that little kerfuffle is behind them now as Lynch took to Twitter on Friday to announce he is returning to the project:

The cable network already had a deal with Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost in place to bring the series back for a run in 2016. Earlier in the year, it was announced that Kyle MacLachlan would return as Agent Dale Cooper and soon other original cast members followed suit. According to THR, the scripts for nine episodes have already been written!

HitFix has the official statement from Showtime’s president David Nevins and it pretty much confirms David Lynch’s announcement on Twitter:

“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!!”

So for the Twin Peaks revival series, I can now officially say: It is happening again!
