Showtime Says There Are No Plans For Another Season of TWIN PEAKS
The highly popular series Twin Peaks made its return to television this year, more than 27 years after its previous run. Now that the 18-episode follow up season is approaching the finale on Showtime many are wondering if there will be another season. Well, Showtime's president and CEO David Nevins revealed to Deadline Hollywood what the future of David Lynch's series holds:
“It was always intended to be one season. A lot of people are speculating but there’s been zero contemplation, zero discussions other than fans asking me about it.”
Showtime programming president Gary Levine, who was also ABC's executive on the original Twin Peaks series said:
“The door’s always open to David Lynch, whether that would lead to another season, I don’t know if he wants to do it. This was a Herculean effort. I’m not sure if any director has ever done 18 hours in a row of a series… It’s remarkable what he achieved, fans are liking it and for me that’s what’s satisfying.”
The 18-episode Twin Peaks sequel was written by the original series’ creators Lynch and Mark Frost. Lynch directed every single episode with Kyle MacLachlan reprising his role.
