Will there be more ‘Twin Peaks’? Showtime boss responds…

Could the cult show return again?

The boss of US network Showtime has said that he would be keen for Twin Peaks to return for more new episodes.

The cult David Lynch show returned for a critically-acclaimed revival season on Showtime last May, more than 25 years after its original run. The new season – billed Twin Peaks: The Return – left fans with a cliffhanger ending.

In November, creator and director Lynch was asked whether Twin Peaks would return again in the future, to which he replied: “Never say never”.


Now, Showtime programming president Gary Levine has indicated that the network are ready whenever Lynch is.

“We’re thrilled we did Twin Peaks, absolutely thrilled,” Levine said at the TCA press tour this week (January 6).

“The work was extraordinary, the fan reaction was extraordinary… It took 25 years for [creators David Lynch and Mark Frost] to go from 1.0 to 2.0.”

“Add to that what David did in the last few years was nothing short of herculean — to direct 18 consecutive hours of television… It’s a herculean task and he did it so beautifully.”

“I don’t know how soon he wants to do [more],” Levine continued. “The door is always open to Mark and David for Twin Peaks — or anything else they want to talk about.”
