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.”
