David Lynch Says He's Back On The New Twin Peaks

Set the Twin Peaks News-O-Meter to “Good” once again. Following the disappointing word last month that David Lynch had decided to pull out of resurrecting mystery series Twin Peaks for US cable channel Showtime, it would appear that a campaign launched by members of the cast has convinced him to come back.

Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ..... It is !!! Happening again. [#TwinPeaks](https://twitter.com/hashtag/TwinPeaks?src=hash) returns on [@SHO_Network](https://twitter.com/SHO_Network) > > — David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) [May 16, 2015](https://twitter.com/DAVID_LYNCH/status/599364142764404736)

That all follows the big announcement last October that Lynch and co-creator/writer Mark Frost would be returning to America’s strangest small town, and that at least some of the cast, including main man Kyle MacLachlan would be back alongside them. Everyone was very excited, only to have their hopes dashed when Lynch pulled the eject cord.

Still, we can only assume that the Showtime executive team has decided to compromise on costs and met at least some of the director’s demands, which means that Lynch will most likely be back to direct all of the episodes planned for the first new run of the series, hopefully still next year. The channel’s president certainly seems happy: "This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever," said David Nevins said in a statement confirming the news. "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!!”
