“No talks” for Twin Peaks season 4, says Showtime
The current foray into Twin Peaks could be the last.
Showtime bosses have said that there have been “no talks” for a new season of Twin Peaks.
During an interview, president of the US network David Nevins said that there had not yet been any talks to do another season of the show, but that they would always consider taking on a David Lynch project.
“It was always intended to be one season. A lot of people are speculating but there's been zero contemplation, zero discussions other than fans asking me about it.
“The door's always open to David Lynch, whether that would lead to another season, I don't know if he wants to do it. This was a Herculean effort. I'm not sure if any director has ever done 18 hours in a row of a series… It's remarkable what he achieved, fans are liking it and for me that's what's satisfying.”
Twin Peaks: The Return marked the first episodes of the show for over 25 years, with director David Lynch bringing back the series with co-writer Mark Frost.
Since its release in 1990, Twin Peaks has been a cult phenomenon, with fans drawn to the mixture of Lynchian surrealism and dark crime drama.
The new series has seen critical acclaim from many fans with others decrying it for not being like the original series.
David Lynch has claimed that the new series essentially acts as an “18-hour long movie”, with the project being the director's first work since 2007's Inland Empire.
Fans have been asking around about more episodes after this season ends, with series star Kyle MacLachlan claiming he'd be on-board if it happened.
