Maybe that David Lynch thing caused a bigger ripple than we thought.
When Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost visited the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum this past June, he did a little interview with them where he dropped this nugget of information that is just now surfacing:
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,” said Frost. “The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time. 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.
Let the teeth gnashing and screaming begin.
But seriously, the fans have waited 25 years for this to happen. One more year won’t be that bad. And if a quality show comes out of it, we’ll all be glad that they took their time and got every little thing right instead of rushing out a half-assed product.
