    !!!

    “Twin Peaks” to return as Showtime event
    Gary Levin USA TODAY 1:19 p.m. EDT October 6, 2014

     

     

    Get ready for some more “damn fine coffee” and cherry pie.

    Cult murder mystery series Twin Peaks,
    which aired a mere 30 episodes on ABC in 1990-91, is returning for a
    limited nine-episode run on Showtime in 2016, with co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost on board. Lynch will direct every episode, and Frost will write them.

    The series starred Kyle MacLachlan as quirky FBI Agent Dale Cooper, who arrived in a small town in the Northwest to invesigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. Along the way, he unearthed secrets about the eccentric townsfolk, from one-eyed Nadine to the Log Lady, and Laura’s lookalike cousin Madeleine.

    Though Peaks was
    a cult favorite, its ratings were poor, and declined further once the
    Palmer murder was solved midway through the second season. But nearly 25
    years after its debut, the series maintains an influential place in
    pop-culture history. The cast also included Sheryl Lee as Laura and Madeleine, Sherilyn Fenn as frisky Audrey Horne, Lara Flynn Boyle, Michael Ontkean,
    and Lynch himself, who showed up occasionally as Cooper’s bureau chief.
    No word on which cast members might return, but it’s a safe bet
    MacLachlan will be among them.

    Showtime will re-air the existing
    episodes (re-released on disc last July), ahead of the show’s return,
    which it’s teasing with a video featuring the show’s haunting theme
    song.

    New
    episodes will be set in present day and provide “long-awaited answers
    for the series’ passionate fan base,” Showtime says. (A 1992 movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me was a prequel, and didn’t provide any).

    “To
    quote Agent Cooper, ‘I have no idea where this will lead us,” says
    Showtime president David Nevins in a statement, “but I have a definite
    feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.'”

    I am so beyond excited for this. As someone who finished watching Twin Peaks earlier this year, this news is coming at just the right time!

    So apparently it’s a limited series. I’m wondering if it will have any Emmy potential. They loved it in the first season, despite not having the broad support to win anything big. Assuming it maintains the quality of the first season we could be looking at some very overdue Emmy glory.

    I didn’t quite know how to feel about this at first. But after just a few more seconds I got pretty excited. Limited episodes and more freedom on premium cable really allows Lynch to get freaky (but hopefully not too freaky). I need for this to be a miniseries only. If not Lynch will get restless and the ship will fall apart again. Cable has gotten a lil monotonous over the last couple of years. This should at least be a break from the same droop. Story wise, I’d love if they found some way to connect this show’s world with that of Mulholland Drive or Lost Highway.

    I’m liking this trend. Let’s bring back Pushing Daisies next.

    I’d third this. Unfortunately, PD was very expensive to produce, and it didn’t quite become the wide spread cult fave after its cancellation like Arrested Development and ‘Peaks’. So, its return is more unlikely than most.

    Bryan Fuller will be occupied with Hannibal the next few years.

    I wish that shows would stay dead. Was Family Guy the last truly worthwhile series revival?

    Futurama, maybe? The Emmys seemed to think so, at least.

    And I for one will go to the grave defending “Arrested Development” Season Four.

    I don’t mind a movie or miniseries if there is truly more story to tell. Otherwise, I agree with halting these revivals.

    So I kinda feel like this is either going to be good or just not make an impression at all. Don’t get me wrong, it has the whole supernatural thing going on but at the time it was on there was really nothing like it. Now, we have a couple of shows (AHS, Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon A Time, Witches of East End, whatever the hell that R.L. Stine show for kids is (its not Goosebumps), etc) so it needs to be unique and if they can do that, I can see it doing well.
