It looks like we will have to wait a bit longer for our pie and coffee at the Double R Diner.
Speaking during an earnings call on Tuesday, CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves confirmed that the Twin Peaks revival is still alive and going, but it won’t hit Showtime in 2016 as was once hoped. Instead the series will launch some time in 2017.
Apparently the delay was caused partially by David Lynch leaving the project at one point – which has now been resolved – and then the addition of more episodes. Lynch and Mark Frost have written all of the new episodes, so one has to imagine that took a while.
Twin Peaks is currently filming in Washington state with David Lynch directing every episode of what is expected to be at least a dozen episodes.
Whenever the new episodes hit is fine by me. I’ll be ready.
