Twin Peaks EP Mark Frost: Showtime's Revival Won't Air Until 2017

Twin Peaks Revival Delayed 2017

Like the prototype for Nadine Hurley’s silent drape runners, Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival seems to have hit a snag.

Series co-creator Mark Frost recently said that the continuation of his and David Lynch’s iconic series would air in 2017 — not 2016, as the network originally announced.

“We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime in 2017,” he said.

Given the bizarre nature of the offbeat drama, it fits that Frost’s comments were made during a late June visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, which then published an interview with him on its blog (the last place most people would think to look for a damn fine update).

In October, the premium cabler ordered a nine-episode Twin Peaks revival, which would air in 2016. Original series star Kyle MacLachlan signed on in January, but Lynch exited the project in April “because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done,” he said in a statement at the time.

But in May, Lynch announced that he’d returned to the project — and Showtime added to the good news by saying the series would run more than the originally ordered nine episodes.

When asked about the possible delay Wednesday, a rep for the network said, “We don’t have a comment at this time.”

    This is never going to happen, is it?

  2. Reblogged this on Reading Other People and commented:
    We’ve waited this long already – another two years won’t kill us.

    If the show starts filming in September (and they said production starts then so filming might be even later) its not going to be ready until July / August 2016 at the earliest. That would have it competing with the new network season , so it makes perfect sense to delay it a little longer.

      Uh what? If filming starts in September it should be ready to air by December. But another year? Something’s up.

    We need some grease and cotton balls.

    This is beginning to get a little ridiculous. If Fox can get The X Files 6 new episodes filmed and ready for a January release, why can’t Showtime? i would be happy with them doing what Starz did with Outlander. Get the 1st half of the season filmed and release those next year. Then they can take their time and finish up the back half for 2017.

    • Joey says:

      I think most people were pretty much expecting it to be delayed since they expanded the season from 9 to 18 episodes.

    • johnhelvete says:

      This is what happens when David Lynch is set to direct all of the episodes, to blame Showtime is unfair. From all accounts, Showtime is going to release the season in two parts.

    • tabularasalocke says:

      They don’t all have the same director filming 18 episodes. They also never had the creator leave during pre-production. 2017 seems like a likely time frame.
