It doesn’t sound like Showtime viewers will be visiting the idiosyncratic town of “Twin Peaks” again — at least, not anytime soon.
“We’re thrilled we did ‘Twin Peaks.’ Absolutely thrilled,” Showtime Programming President Gary Levine said when asked about a potential return. “The work was extraordinary, the fan reaction was extraordinary and it was incredibly good for our brand and our network.”
“But let’s remember: It took 25 years for [co-creators] Mark [Frost] and for David [Lynch] to go from ‘1.0’ to ‘2.0,’” the HBO alum — who also worked on “Peaks” there in the very early 1990s — continued.
“What David did in the last two years was nothing short of Herculean,” Levine continued while on-stage with boss David Nevins at Television Critics Association press tour in January.
After all, Lynch directed, wrote, edited and composed music for all 18 hours of the 2017 “Twin Peaks” comeback. Oh yeah, and the guy even acted in it, too.
“I don’t know how soon he wants to do it,” Levine said of getting more out of Lynch and his key I.P.
Still: “The door at Showtime is always open for Mark and for David — for ‘Twin Peaks’ or anything else they want to talk about,” Levine concluded.
Someone put on a pot of coffee at the Lynch Estate.
