David Lynch warns of ‘complications’ with ‘Twin Peaks’ return
He spoke about the cult show during a Q&A in Queensland with David Strattan.
David Lynch announced last October that Twin Peaks, the sci-fi cult show that aired from 1990 to 1991, would get a sequel in the form of a third season that would air on Showtime in 2016, but now he’s not so certain about its return.
Lynch spoke with David Stratton during a Q&A event at the Queensland Performing Arts Center in Brisbane, Australia, Saturday, when Strattan asked him about the status of the Twin Peaks revival. The last most fans had heard was that original star Kyle MacLachlan would be reprising his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper, and that was back in mid-January.
His answer, however, is sure to worry Twin Peaks fans.
“I don’t know,” he said. “There are complications.”
News quickly spread out of the QPAC by fans who were in attendance for the sold-out Q&A while others reached out to Showtime, urging the premium cable company to give Lynch anything he wants so he’ll return to Twin Peaks.

According to Welcome Twin Peaks, the “complications” Lynch spoke of seem to be more about contract negotiations; Lynch said it wasn’t about funding or the scripts, which are written.
Lynch confirmed that contract discussions were ongoing in an interview with ABCNews24’s The Mix, where he reaffirmed his love for the show and his wish to return to the show.
“I haven’t returned yet and we’re still working on the contract, but I love the world of Twin Peaks and I love those characters,” he said. “And I think it will be very special to go back into that world.
David Lynch reponds to the question what it feels like to return to Twin Peaks after 25 years: “I haven’t returned yet. And we’re still working on the contract. But I love the world of Twin Peaks and I love those characters. And I think it will be very special to go back into that world.” Source: #TheMix #ABCNews #DavidLynch #TwinPeaks2016

Will we return to Twin Peaks, Wash.? That might be almost as much a mystery as what goes on in that town.
