The Twin Peaks revival is starting production in September, and fans should expect some long awaited answers to various questions from the season 2 finale.
Twin Peaks is still a go and will start filming in September, according to Showtime president David Nevins, speaking at the TCA Summer Press Tour on Tuesday. The network head also addressed the changing release date, saying that he is still unsure about when it will be ready to air.
"I want it as badly and as soon as I think the biggest fans in the world want it, so I'm hoping we make 2016, but it's not clear," Nevinss said. "It's ultimately going to be in [Mark Frost and David Lynch's] control. They're going to shoot the whole thing and then they're going to start post [production]. So bottom line is I'll take it when they're ready for it. I can't be any clearer if it's 2016 or '17, but I'm hoping it's sooner rather than later."
When the revival was officially announced in late 2014, it was revealed that the show would air in 2016, though negotiations with Lynch pushed things back significantly. Frost recently said that the release date could be 2017.
As for the content of the Twin Peaks revival itself, Nevins confirmed that certain storylines from the 1990-91 show that were left open-ended would be addressed in the revival.
"It's very satisfying. There were certain basic questions that I had at the end of the [original series] given where Agent Cooper is, and I think those questions get answered. ... 25 years have passed, but it resolves the questions left from the original series," Nevins said.
Fans will remember that the season 2 finale concluded with too many cliffhangers to count, including Agent Cooper (Kyle McLachlan)'s shadow self becoming inhabited by BOB.
No one knows what Lynch, Frost and company will cook up for the revival, but hopefully it will be just as wonderful and strange as the original series.
