Twin Peaks Premiere Date

Twin Peaks Revival Pushed to 2017

That damn fine coffee is going to need a little more time to brew.

Showtime’s forthcoming Twin Peaks revival won’t premiere until 2017, CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves officially confirmed during an earnings call Tuesday (per Variety).

Showtime president David Nevins previously said he hoped the continuation would bow in 2016. But the combination of that (since resolved) David Lynch contract stalemate and subsequent episode-order expansion made a 2017 debut much more likely. (Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost hinted at the revised timeline over the summer.)

Lynch and Frost have penned all episodes of the present-day revival — which is rumored to total more than a dozen episodes — with Lynch directing every installment. Filming is currently underway in Washington state.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I feel like everyone is starting to realize that this was always better more in theory than reality.

      So much for the whole “See you in 25 years” line that Laura told Cooper in the Black Lodge during the last episode in ’91. It doesn’t fit if the show doesn’t air in 2016. I figured someone like Lynch would be a stickler for that kind of detail.

      • Adam says:

        Regardless of when it airs, it can take place in 2016.

        • Also, didn’t the events of the show take place in 1990, or had it reached ’91 by the time Cooper went into the Black Lodge?

          I’m hoping they don’t do any recasts. Tie Harry Truman’s death to something storyline-related if Michael Ontkean doesn’t want to come back. As for Killer BOB, can’t they just use old footage and/or deleted scenes to make it seem like he’s still there?

            Yes, Jeremy Wihm is too clueless to even realize that the entire span of the show is approximately 30 days (each episode was a day in Twin Peaks). So 25 years later is 2015. We shouldn’t take Laura’s quote so literal anyways. I can’t even remember if they actually said what year the show took place in, they could easily say it was 1992, or when the revival begins they can say its 2015. It wasn’t like they planed to get canceled and come back in 25 years. It was pure look it happened. A bit of a retcon wouldn’t hurt anybody.

    I just watched it again on Netflix and my memory of it was much different. The thing moved at a snail’s pace with each episode being basically one day. Audrey was kidnapped for what 8 episodes and it took forever for Cooper to find that damn note. I hope he can quicken the pace a little bit.

    I can wait, as long as they’re doing it right (which it seems they are).

    When shopping from the internet, a come of populate ofttimes rent clock time to
    register done a distich of reviews on the mathematical product ahead making a buy.
    This is because; online cartesian product reviews portray the
    divers opinions from those WHO hold bought the products earlier.
    Thus, it would be harmonious to order that online product reviews
    tooshie take in an touch on on the gross sales of those products.
    The affect of online merchandise reviews on gross sales canful either be confirming or blackball based on the tonicity and manner in which they are written. At times,
    it ass also be based upon the hoi polloi World Health
    Organization write them. However, it should be far-famed that an ideal online merchandise
    reappraisal should be understandably scripted based on the customer see and non any early grammatical category reasons.
    That is the sole fashion done which they sack be useful
    to you as the line of work possessor and your sensed customers.

    Now that’s a bitter cup of coffee. I blame Diane.

  6. Patrick says:

    So, this thing is never actually going to get made, is it.

  7. Heathers says:

    Maybe they can convince Michael Ontkean aka Harry Truman to come out of retirement!

  8. Hopefully by delaying it, more of the original cast can re-align their schedules. I’m pretty confident they’re going to do this right. More time is a benefit.

    I’ll just be drinking some damn fine coffee, waiting.

    In fact, Mr. David Lynch, how about another damn fine coffee commercial to tide us over?
