Here’s something to put on your reading list while you wait for Showtime’s revival of “Twin Peaks.”
Mark Frost, who co-created the iconic series with David Lynch, is writing a novel, “The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks,” which “reveals what has happened to the people of that iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago,” according to the book’s publisher, Macmillan subsidiary Flatiron Books.
The novel will also offer “a deeper glimpse into the central mystery that was only touched on by the original series,” Flatiron added.
“The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks,” which has also been picked up all over the world, will go on sale in late 2015, ahead of Showtime’s revival of the series.
“[Flatiron president and publisher] Bob Miller and I have enjoyed a fantastic fifteen year relationship in publishing,” Frost said of the book. “This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life, for old fans and new. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
As reported earlier this month, Showtime is bringing back “Twin Peaks” as a limited series in 2016. The nine-episode revival will be written and produced by Lynch and Frost, and pick up in the present day in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington, 25 years after the original ABC show went off the air.
