'Twin Peaks' Pushed Back to 2017
Published Jul 08, 2015Fans are anxiously awaiting the upcoming third season of David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks, but they'll have to wait a little longer than expected. Originally planned for release in 2016, the show has now been bumped back a full year.
In a visit to the Baseball Hall of Fame, of all places, Mark Frost offered an update on the series in a speech.
"We've finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017," Frost said. "The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time."
It's unclear exactly why the show was delayed, although David Lynch likely threw a wrench into things when he momentarily quit the show over budgetary concerns.
When it does return, it'll likely have been worth the wait. The third season of Twin Peaks will feature the return of nearly every cast member from the original show.
