As the A.V. Club has neatly laid out, the last week has seen an onslaught of gentle nudges suggesting Lynch could be getting the gang together once more.
It started with a strange thread of tweets from the Hollywood Horror Museum, where David's daughter Jennifer Lynch serves as a board member:
Someone we know who is "in the know" just let something Very Interesting slip about the future of TWIN PEAKS— Hollywood Horror Museum 🧛 (@horrormuseum) September 27, 2019
If it's true, we'll be squealing and giddy in 2020!
We don't want to get anyone in trouble (for being stupid enough to tell us!) So we can't say more until THEY do, but this isn't just a rumor.— Hollywood Horror Museum 🧛 (@horrormuseum) September 27, 2019
All we can say is, the people in charge are preparing for something big in 2020. Until the people who have a right to say more do, we have to stay silent.— Hollywood Horror Museum 🧛 (@horrormuseum) September 27, 2019
PS they didn't tell us it was a secret and NOT to say anything.— Hollywood Horror Museum 🧛 (@horrormuseum) September 27, 2019
Long time followers of our page know our connections with the Twin Peaks cast, crew, studio etc. We haven't the right to say anything more, nor will we spew a bunch of rumor crap. Unless someone high up tells us to remove this post, just remember, you heard it here first ☕— Hollywood Horror Museum 🧛 (@horrormuseum) September 28, 2019
Things slightly escalated from there. Michael Horse, who plays Deputy Hawk on Twin Peaks, broke a long streak of cat pics on Instagram to make a rare reference to the show, seemingly telling everyone that there was a secret needing to be kept:
Then, hammering it all home, Kyle MacLachlan hinted at Agent Cooper with a Peaks reference on an otherwise normal photo:
Love this dapper suit, but definitely thinking about…donuts this morning 💭🍩 pic.twitter.com/mmutiMc75N— Kyle MacLachlan (@Kyle_MacLachlan) October 1, 2019
Of course, it's all very cryptic at this point. But would we expect anything less from David Lynch and co.?
