Showtime Head of Programming: The Door is Always Open for More ‘Twin Peaks’

by John Evans

David Lynch’s massive revival of Twin Peaks has finished airing on Showtime and is now available on blu-ray disc, but that doesn’t mean the adventure is over! Variety reports that Showtime is happy to support Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost with future seasons of Twin Peaks… or any other potential project for that matter!

Gary Levine, Showtime’s head of programming, had this to say during his presentation at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Saturday:

“The door at Showtime is always open to Mark and David for more Twin Peaks or anything else they want to talk about.”

During his speech, Levine elaborated on his enthusiasm about what Lynch and Frost were able to successfully pull off with their revival:

“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 Mark and David to go from 1.0 to 2.0. Add to that what David did in the last few years was nothing short of Herculean. To direct 18 consecutive hours of television belongs in the Guiness Book of World Records. And (he) wrote, and starred (in), and edited, and composed (it). It’s a Herculean task and he did it just so beautifully.”

The ball is in Mr. Lynch’s court now! Twin Peaks fans are used to waiting, so it should be no surprise that this development doesn’t mean we should expect anything right around the corner. The most recent season took years from pre-production to air, so let’s remain cautiously optimistic about this one.
