The Twin Peaks revival may be taking forever, but on the bright side, it’s still happening.
During the TCA summer press tour, Showtime Networks president David Nevins revealed that the series is still chugging along, even confirming that production is slated to start next month. “Shooting starts in September, thankfully,” he said.
The show’s almost didn’t happen due to some creative and financial differences between co-creator David Lynch and the network, but Nevins was never concerned about not getting Lynch back into the fold. “I never had doubt we would get him back, Twin Peaks is a huge priority for us,” said Nevins. “It became clear it would take more than nine episodes, which we had planned and budgeted for. We had to sort that out. Lynch wanted to direct all episodes, and we wanted him to direct all episodes. We are looking to be in great shape.”
As far as the series premiere date and amount of episodes that the revival will have, plans are still not set in stone, but getting the show on air is a top priority for Nevins. “I want it as badly and as soon as the biggest fans in the world want it, ” he said. “I’m hoping we make 2016. It’s not clear. It’s ultimately going to be in their control. They’re going to shoot the whole thing and then they’ll start posting.. Bottom line is I’ll take it when they’re ready with it… but I’m hoping sooner rather than later.”
