The Twin Peaks revival had a rocky start with co-creator Lynch having conflict with Showtime over not getting sufficient money for the revival. Lynch announced at that time that he was leaving the revival, tweeting:
After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.

However, they would later come to an agreement and Lynch returned to the series. Filming recently wrapped on the revival season.
Twin Peaks is slated to return with new episodes in the first half of 2017 on Showtime.
