Is David Lynch just playing with our emotions?

The Twin Peaks saga continues.

Over the weekend, director David Lynch told interviewer David Stratton that there were “complications” with the new reboot, which was announced last fall and scheduled to debut on Showtime in 2016. Back in January, Lynch tweeted out that original cast member Kyle MacLachlan would return to the show, but we didn’t have much more to go on than that. Lynch further worried fans this past weekend when he told an interviewer that he “hasn’t returned yet,” and that contract negotiations were still happening.

However, a source told EW that “Nothing is going on that’s any more than any preproduction process with David Lynch,” adding that “[e]verything is moving forward and everybody is crazy thrilled and excited.” 

Showtime has also reportedly received Lynch’s scripts, but if the reboot is allegedly moving forward, hopefully it’s with Lynch in the director’s chair. A third season of Twin Peaks without Lynch is like cherry pie without coffee.
