‘Twin Peaks’ Season 3 Revival Pushed Back to 2017

The Twin Peaks revival still isn’t dead, but there has been a setback — the Showtime premiere won’t happen until 2017.

On the plus side, David Lynch is still very much involved.

Revealed co-creator Mark Frost, “A lot of people always look back at Twin Peaks and say that was the start of this explosion we’ve had in good television drama, but we did it in a time when there were still only three networks.”

“The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time.”

He concluded, “We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”

The series was initially slated for a 2016 return.
