25 YEARS LATER
I am genuinely blown away by the news that Twin Peaks is coming back and that David Lynch is directing all 9 episodes for Showtime.
That’s as much Twin Peaks as he directed in the whole run of the original series.
I’m hoping that there isn’t some bad news to come, like Kyle MacLachlan not taking a lead role and only doing a cameo or something like that, but to be honest, the biggest news here for me is that Lynch is returning to TV (and directing— he hasn’t done a film since Inland Empire in 2006!) and he has Mark Frost to ground him a little, and that they have the freedom and respect that Showtime provides. They won’t have to deal with ABC’s stupid show-killing scheduling decisions and pressure to tell the story some other way this time around.
I wrote letters to ABC back during Season Two, begging them to bring it back for a third season, and I saw Fire Walk With Me on Friday AND Saturday the weekend it was released, despite not really enjoying it all that much.
I have already seen too many idiotic online commenters expressing their opinions of what a season 3 “should” contain, but I’m mainly just curious and hopeful to see what Lynch and Frost come up with.
I guess the only thing I’m really concerned about is Agent Cooper. It was his show, he was the core of it, and the prequel film suffered from his lack of involvement. Other than that, I have no wishes. I just wanna see what they come up with. If it’s great, that’s great, and if it’s terrible, I won’t be too upset. The best part of this might well be the looking forward to it, and that’s no small thing.
(Oh, I guess my treatment of the Japanese Twin Peaks Georgia Coffee commercials as “canon” will probably be thrown into question now. I always regarded them as a mini-season 3 since they established that Cooper had somehow gotten out of the Black Lodge.)
