David Lynch Pulls Plug on “Twin Peaks” Reboot, Says Showtime is Too Cheap

There will be no “Twin Peaks” revival this fall. David Lynch says he’s pulled the plug because he can’t reach a deal with Showtime. I know some people will be disappointed. I feel bad for the actors who planned on returning to their roles; it was good work. But the Laura Palmer mystery took up all the energy in “Twin Peaks” back in 1989. Once it was over, so was the show. Let’s remember it fondly and move on to new material. A revival would never have matched expectations. Fire, walk with me.

Showtime’s statement: “We were saddened to read David Lynch’s statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. SHOWTIME also loves the world of Twin Peaks and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.”
