It was perhaps to be expected given the delayed start, and was indeed rumoured to be the case, but it looks like the third season of Twin Peaks won’t hit Showtime until 2017.
Variety reports that CBS head honcho Leslie Moonves has dated the return of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s cult classic for 2017, although a rep said that a late 2016 start date “is still a possibility.”
The disagreements between Showtime and Lynch over the budget and the number of episodes, which did eventually get resolved but not before we all had a big panic, is probably the reason for this.
Aside from the obvious fact that we want our new Twin Peaks as soon as possible, please, it’s a bit of a shame that the air date has been moved back because we were kind of clinging to the idea that this was all part of a master plan to fulfil Laura Palmer’s prophecy. It’s “I’ll see you again in 25 years,” not “26.”
