‘Twin Peaks’ co-creator denies that show is being revived

Mark Frost says reports that David Lynch is returning to cult TV show are untrue

Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost has denied reports that the cult TV show is being revived.

It was reported yesterday that director David Lynch could return to the series, which featured on FBI Agent Dale Cooper’s investigation of the murder of teenager Laura Palmer and the inhabitants of the town Twin Peaks and ran for two seasons until it was cancelled in 1991.

Reports claimed that Lynch would be shooting new footage for the show and that a casting call had been circulated. It read: “TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. Prob a 6 hour or less day. Rate is 150/8. You must live in LA to submit. I don’t think SAG has jurisdiction on this, so SAG and NON can submit. I have called SAG to double check this and I am awaiting a call back to confirm.

However, writing on Twitter, Frost described the story as “another strange baseless rumour”.

Twin Peaks was a critical hit and received 14 Emmy nominations during its run. However, declining ratings in the show’s second series meant it was placed on indefinite hiatus by network ABC. Lynch later directed a prequel film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, which was released in 1992.
