The Twin Peaks 2016 revival on Showtime apparently won't go on with series co-creator David Lynch, and fans are devastated.

Lynch announced in a series of tweets on Sunday that he was leaving the Twin Peaks revival project due to Showtime not giving him the proper money to produce it.

"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," Lynch tweeted.

He added that he called the actors scheduled to appear in the Twin Peaks revival to let them know that he was leaving the project. However, he also noted that the show might still happen on Showtime, it just won't be with him.

"We were saddened to read David Lynch's statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points," Showtime said in a statement. "Showtime also loves the world of 'Twin Peaks' and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm." Twin Peaks fans are devastated by the news, considering Lynch was such a key part of what made the show so special in the first place. The visionary director helmed many of the show's best and most iconic episodes including the pilot, Zen, or the Skill to Catch a Killer and Lonely Souls.

 Fans have created a petition through change.org, urging Showtime to let Lynch have the money he wants or else allow another network like HBO or even Netflix to take over the project.

It remains to be seen if Twin Peaks will in fact be revived at all without such an integral member of its original success.
