Twin Peaks, perhaps the greatest TV show of all time (yes, I’ll say it!), will officially be back on TV in 2016. The rumors started swirling a few days ago when Mark Frost and David Lynch tweeted the same message:
Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee
Today, Showtime posted a teaser trailer (you can watch above) confirming that the show will be back in 2016. TV Line says the plan is nine episodes continuing the story in the present day and that “Lynch and Frost are poised to pen all nine episodes, with Lynch directing every installment.”
For me and many writers I know, Twin Peaks has been as influential as any novel. So let’s break out the logs and cherry pie in celebration to the best TV news in some time.
