“Twin Peaks” fans are mad at Showtime ’cause they didn’t give David Lynch enough money to write the script the way he wanted it. People are mad at Showtime. Threatening the network that they would lose the fans support, protesting and all that stuff.
Keep in mind that David Lynch wasn’t the main creator of the series. He was “co-creator”, meaning that he helped create the show with someone else. Mark Frost was the main creator of the series, Lynch just helped him with it a little bit. So all this talk of “No David Lynch, no Twin Peaks” don’t make any sense to me at all.
The show “Twin Peaks” can easily go on without Mr. Lynch ’cause as you know, David Lynch didn’t direct every episode of the two seasons of “Twin Peaks”. Lynch only directed several episodes anyways.
As far as this deal goes, maybe Lynch just wanted too much money that Showtime couldn’t afford? Maybe Showtime just wanted this show to be on a lower budget, ya know? I think they are just trying to keep the costs down.
I support Showtime on their decision ’cause whatever it is, it’s all business ’cause that’s how Hollywood works. I wish people would understand that but nope… you know how obsessive fans can be when they don’t get what they want. David Lynch is not the king of “Twin Peaks”, it’s all Mark Frost’s baby. Lynch was just a helper like I said above.
I’m still gonna support the new show even if Lynch will no longer be involved. I’m sure the show will still be great without him.
I’m glad more Twin Peaks is coming. We really need an explanation of Dale and the Black Lodge so they’ll probably give us that for the next season. We still need to know more about Laura Palmer too. I’m pretty sure Kyle Maclachlan will reprise his role as Dale and I’m pretty sure Ray Wise will come back as Leland Palmer (Laura’s father). They have to come back ’cause they were a part of this whole Black Lodge thing.
For the new season, I’m also sure we’ll see some some familiar faces. All the characters from the previous seasons will return. I’m sure characters like Audrey, Donna, James, Ben Horne, Lucy, Bobby, etc. will all return. The only character who won’t return is obviously Josie Packard (unless there’s gonna be new flashback scenes for her???).
I’m glad that the show is going to Showtime instead of CBS (remember CBS owns Showtime). On Showtime, that means more freedom in creative writing. There could be more nudity and swearing. Watch the prequel film, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” there was a lot of nudity and swearing in that film.
It’s gonna be interesting to see what Twin Peaks is gonna be like years later. Knowing how David Lynch writes, I’m sure he’ll make the 9 episodes a bit weird and crazy like the previous seasons were.
I don’t have Showtime so I won’t be able to watch it but I’m sure those 9 new episodes will be made available for streaming on Netflix soon after.
Glad Mr. Lynch is giving us more, thanks dude! He definitely knows what the fans want and this is probably what he’s doing this for.
