Agent Carter and Twin Peaks Get Extended Episode Orders
Agent Carter and Twin Peaks were both "renewed" at long last (one significantly longer than the other), and now both nerdy shows are getting more episodes than we originally thought. Hayley Atwell announced at Comicpalooza that Agent Carter's second season will now consist of ten episodes, and Sherilyn Fenn announced at Crypticon that the Twin Peak revival has been extended to 18 episodes.
Agent Carter was "on the bubble" for renewal for an excruciatingly long period of time, but was finally renewed for a second season at the beginning of May. ABC/Marvel's synopsis for the upcoming season also hinted at some huge changes, including a location change to Los Angeles and possibly a major cast shake-up, with Atwell the only confirmed returning cast member thus far.
Showtime's Twin Peaks revival is finally back on track, with the original stars and, most importantly, the slippery David Lynch all on board. At Crypticon, star Sherilyn Fenn revealed that the third season had been extended from nine to eighteen episodes, saying, "I think when [David Lynch] did the nine, he realized he needed nine more to complete it."
Fenn, along with co-star Sheryl Lee, also revealed that the new season would feature music from original Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and would feature a restored version of the original and infamous Double R diner.
Agent Carter returns for its second season on ABC this winter, during the midseason hiatus of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The third season/reboot of Twin Peaks will air on Showtime sometime in 2016.
