Twin Peaks Revival Delayed Until 2017
< >
Twin Peaks fans have suffered many trials and tribulations on the way to a revival, not the least of which was the temporary loss of David Lynch. But after some seemingly painful negotiations got him back (because really, what would be the point?), it seemed that the cult sci-fi show was set to come back in 2016, more than two decades after the original show went off the air. Now, it seems that it may be off the air for an even 25 years, as co-creator Mark Frost told baseballhall.org that the show would return in 2017:

Opening quote
"We had 32 hours back in 1991-92, and with my partner David Lynch we kind of blew open that genre of the nighttime soap and took it in a whole other direction... The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time. We're coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We've finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017."
Closing quote


Granted, this is just one source, but Frost, who created the show with David Lynch back in the 90's, seems to be a reliable source. And it doesn't seem implausible, as either Lynch's contract troubles or the recently increased episode order from nine to eighteen episodes could have delayed production.

The Twin Peaks revival will feature at least the first nine episodes written by Lynch and Frost, as well as several returning cast members, including Kyle MacLachlan, who played Agent Dale Cooper in the original series.
