Published Apr 08, 2015It's been an emotional roller coaster for fans of David Lynch and Mark Frost's iconic Twin Peaks series. After celebrating when the show was renewed for a third season, Lynch broke hearts earlier this week by announcing he was leaving the project over budgetary concerns. The show's cast is not taking it lightly. In fact, they've filmed a video pleading with him to come back.
The video features most of Twin Peaks' cast, including Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Peggy Lipton (Norma Jennings), James Marshall (James Hurley) and others. They each fill in the blanks on the phrase "Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like ____ without ____." Watch the video below.
While he doesn't appear in the two-minute clip, Ray Wise (Leland Palmer) expressed his support of Lynch on Twitter:
More details have emerged on Lynch's initial plans for the reboot. Last fall, in an interview with Agenda Magazine [via The Playlist], Lynch explained that he was making the expensive choice to shoot the series on film.
"I don't know how it happened, but there were hardly any restrictions," he said of the original series. "So it's not like we're saying now: 'Oh boy, we're gonna really do some raunchy things.' We're gonna do the same things, but in better quality. And film remains the best quality," Lynch said. He was really excited to be working back in television."
