New Twin Peaks Without David Lynch? 'Audrey Horne' and Others Nix Notion

A Twin Peaks revival without series co-creator David Lynch at the helm is like… well, a flurry of familiar faces from the cult hit’s original run are here to finish that thought.

In a video brought to the Internet by series alum Madchen Amick, the onetime Double R waitress plus Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, James Marshall, Peggy Lipton, Wendy “Nadine” Robie, Gary “wrestling champ Mike Nelson” Hershberger, Ken “Windom Earle” Welsh and others offer distinct, often character-specific reasons why Showtime moving ahead with the nine-episode revival without Lynch as director simply registers as incomplete.

Over the weekend, Lynch announced that he was walking away from the project after running into budget issues with Showtime. Lynch was to direct all nine episodes, which he and co-creator Mark Frost have already written.

Thus far, only series lead Kyle MacLachlan has been confirmed for the revival, though Showtime president David Nevins said in January that he expected “lots of people from the original cast” to return.
