It’s Friday afternoon and I just got off work with the entire weekend ahead of me! As if things weren’t already going fantastic, I check my Twitter feed and get the best news I’ve heard all month: At 5:02 PM, David Lynch instantly healed legions of broken hearts, declaring:
Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ….. It is !!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network
Blood Shed readers may recall the day the internet wept: It was April 5th, Easter Sunday, when Lynch told fans that a planned 9-episode revival of his seminal television series, was off.
“Dear Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks. After one year and four months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done. This weekend I started to call the actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime. I love the world of Twin peaks and wish things could have worked out differently.”
Whether or not Lynch’s previous withdrawal was merely a form of “public negotiations” remains a point of conjecture, but whatever happened behind the scenes, well, I just couldn’t be happier!
Showtime’s David Nevins confirmed the news:
“I’m Agent Dale Cooper, and I approve this message!”
