‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot Pushed Back to 2017

Bad news for fans hoping to return to Twin Peaks in 2016.

The reboot of Twin Peaks, the iconic 90s mystery drama from David Lynch, has been pushed back to 2017 by Showtime. The news comes from Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost, who stated that new episodes “will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”

This statement runs contrary to last month’s announcement from Showtime, which still had the series scheduled for 2016. However, it’s now apparent that Frost is right on the money, as Showtime has now removed the “in 2016” text from the header on the Twin Peaks page on their website. So it looks like we’re in for a longer wait than expected.

However, if there’s any silver lining, it’s that we’ll be getting a new Twin Peaks book some time in 2016, as Frost will release The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks next year. Of course, it was supposed to come out this fall, so I guess even a cloud with a silver lining is still a cloud.
