'Twin Peaks' Co-Creator Hints That Show Could Come Back, At Some Point


Arrested Development is somehow getting another season, so why not another prematurely-canceled cult show involving Heather Graham, a one-armed man, and faked death by a corrupt family company owner?

Speaking to the demanding science fiction magazine Sci-Fi Now, Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost has loosely suggested as much, hinting that he and David Lynch's old ABC series could one day return, with the old cast returning as a necessarily now-old cast. As recounted by Moviehole:

"Who knows what will happen in the future", Frost says of an initially proposed five-season plan for the series, that's second season ended with an assumed never-to-be-solved cliff-hanger.

Bringing the show back is "something we talk about from time to time", says the Hill Street Blues alum. "If we ever do decide to move forward, I know we have a rich trove to draw from."

The author and Frost speculate that the third season could realistically be set 25 years on (perfect timing, really, considering the show's age), picking up from the original's iconic dream sequence between Cooper, Laura and the backwards-speaking dwarf, that took place in the original series 25 years into the future. It's suggested that, in addition to Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee and Michael J.Anderson, that Heather Graham would be back, reprising her role as Cooper's tormented girlfriend Annie.

Frost never gets into who exactly the "we" talking about a Twin Peaks follow-up is--Lynch, one would assume, but isn't it statistically more likely to be a stoned college kid who just finished the series on Netflix?--and all the wording makes this sound like a pretty faint pipe dream, filled with only the faintest, laziest dancing form of a small man. But still, it's an interesting prospect, and one that it's hard to imagine the original cast would object to--particularly since Kyle Maclachlan's recent Made in Jersey obligations were cleared up after just two episodes.

But really, the real decider in whether to move forward on another season would likely be David Lynch, and there's no telling what his plans are. Does he have plans to hauntingly promote a beverage? Eat some quinoa? Eat some still-warm panties? There have all been true answers in the past, so honestly, there is absolutely no telling. It's even odds for a Twin Peaks season against a disquieting black & white short about giving himself a foot bath.

    Is it necessary for a DVD box set to have a trailer? Probably not, especially if it's for Nel Carter's Gimme a Break. But when it's for David Lynch's Twin Peaks, I'm sort of glad it does. Because this is, as the trailer will remind you several times, a gold box edition, it's g... / Continue →
