“Twin Peaks” Actually Isn’t Going to Air Until 2017
“See you never.” — Laura Palmer
Sounding so outrageous that it initially seemed like it must’ve been an off-the-cuff mistake, we were first broken the news back in July that Twin Peaks was possibly being peeled back towards a 2017 release date, according to co-creator Mark Frost. The corporate silence was deafening in the intervening months (and no, Showtime, we cannot be assuaged by old clips being sold as “teasers”), and today we were finally let down officially.
Coming from a run-of-the-mill earnings report, CBS super-boss Leslie Moonves confirmed that 2017 is the projected release for David Lynch’s return to the Double R Diner. A Showtime representative later lied to everyone and said a “late 2016” air date is still a possibility. Uh-huh. Whatever.
Anyway, in other Twin Peaks news, David Lynch has asked that the media not report on casting developments as they happen. Sure would be a shame if somebody else did it for us.
