David Lynch has left the new Twin Peaks show
We need the Bookhouse Boys!
During this weekends WonderCon, rumours arose that Showtime had cancelled the new series of Twin Peaks that was due out next year.
That rumour follows the one from a while back that said David Lynch was still not on board as they were ?still working on the contract.?
So what is going on?
David Lynch cleared things up on Facebook:
Sad, sad news. I had thought that they would have been throwing money at the show to get it made as reactions to the new series had been overwhelmingly positive. In a way I?m glad Lynch stuck to his guns. If Showtime did go ahead without Lynch?s involvement in any way then it wouldn?t really be Twin Peaks.
In an ideal World, Showtime will cancel their plans and Netflix will ride in and give us the show we all want. Can we start sending Cherry Pies to Showtime HQ?
The scripts have been written so the show could go ahead.
It also seems that Showtime were surprised by Lynch?s comment as you can see in their official 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.
What a damn shame this has happened. I was so looking forward to new Twin Peaks, but without Lynch it?s not going to be the show we wanted.
I so wanted to find out how Annie was.Powered by Sidelines
