Twin Peaks Saved! David Lynch To Direct Even More Than Expected, Thanks Cast And Fans

From welcometo twinpeaks, After six weeks of rallying to #SaveTwinPeaks and also exactly one year after the Twin Peaks Blu-ray announcement, Twin Peaks fans can finally sleep well and have both wonderful and strange dreams again about that upcoming new season. Wow Bob wow! On a date that reads the same forward and backward, David Lynch and Mark Frost announced that the show is definitely coming to Showtime, despite the “rumors.”

Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ….. It is !!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network

The premium cabler followed the announcement with an official statement from their CEO, David Nevins:

This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever. Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Pre production starts now!!

Banzai! Whether this translates into just a few more episodes or even an entire extra season is unknown at this point.

In an e-mail to Sherilyn Fenn, who will return as Audrey Horne, the director thanked the cast for playing a major role in making the negotiations successful, and everyone who rallied to save Twin Peaks.
