Twin Peaks fans will have to hold out a little longer for the good coffee and pie, now that we know the series’ revival has been delayed until 2017.
The news, dug up by Uproxx, was broken by series co-creator Mark Frost, when he told Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum that the series wouldn’t be making a return to TV until at least 2017.
“A lot of people always look back at Twin Peaks and say that was the start of this explosion we’ve had in good television drama, but we did it in a time when there were still only three networks,” said Frost. “The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time. We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”
The revival has faced its fair share of issues, with co-creator David Lynch briefly backing out of the project due to financial issues and creative differences. The issues were ironed out, thankfully, but audiences still have a while to wait before catching up with their favorite characters from the strange little town.
