It was a bit discouraging when last month David Lynch left the “Twin Peaks” remake at Showtime over a reported salary dispute. Life felt a little bit sad for a while, honestly. However, it also seemed like that Lynch was honestly invested in reviving the series.
Then, a few weeks ago, the director opened up on Twitter about the reason he left the series. He said that not enough money was being offered to complete the series in a compelling way. However, after an uproar from fans, things have changed. Last week, Lynch took to Twitter again and officially announced that the show was back on!
Showtime president David Nevins also confirmed that “Twin Peaks” was returning and with a larger episode order this time. He said,
“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. Preproduction starts now!!”
It has been reported that Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have already completed the nine script order initially confirmed by Showtime. However, more episodes may need to be developed with the larger episode order.
