Fans of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks such as myself might have a reason to be excited. Recently both Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have teased the possible continuation of Twin Peaks. Well, they both just stated the same quote (“that gum you like is going to come back into style,” which led Dale Cooper to finally catch Laura’s killer) on Twitter, far from being one of the most reliable sources. But still, Lynch and Frost are at least doing something together with Twin Peaks and that’s reason for being happy enough.
I’m unsure whether Lynch is going to do another season or movie or that he’s planning something to coordinate with the recent blu-ray release of the entire series (plus the unfairly maligned Fire Walk With Me). If I were to guess, we’d likely see a reunion of the cast and crew, with Lynch and co. talking about the show’ legacy about 22 years after we’ve seen the last of the small and supernatural town.
While I would prefer Lynch to do another movie (his last picture, Inland Empire, was one of his most cryptic and best), I’d be happy to see more of Twin Peaks if he does decide to continue the story. Some fans can argue that the series has already had its run (not to mention the second half of season 2 doesn’t meet the high standards of the previous episodes) and that there’s really new we can learn about the mystery of Laura Palmer. But David Lynch isn’t known for taking projects he isn’t into (well, besides Dune), so if something does pan out, I’ll be first in line.
