By Craig Hubert | Will there be a third season of “Twin Peaks?” That is the question zigzagging its way around the Internet over the last two days, thanks to an anonymous source who claimed to be at a meeting between series creators Mark Frost and David Lynch and NBC. Among the many things the tipster passed on is that Lynch wants to be “very hands on with the project,” they want “most of the cast back,” and the season would revolve around a young female reporter who uncovers “the truth behind Twin Peaks, BOB, and the lodge.” Could this really be happening? The unsourced news isn’t out of the blue, necessarily. Although Lynch and Frost haven’t announced anything officially, they both have been intriguingly elusive about the subject in recent months. Frost, in a recent interview, spoke of the return of “Twin Peaks” as “something we talk about from time to time,” and that if “we ever do decide to move forward, I know we have a rich trove to draw from.” Lynch, for his part, gave a typically Lynchian answer to the question of revisiting the series in a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter:
“I’ll tell you. I’m walking down the street. There are people in the street. There is someone you fancy. And you turn a corner. And there she is. No two ways about it. She is the idea. You are in love. And she is the story.”
Not a definitive no, right? Frost has taken to Twitter to discount the story, but never officially denies it. So maybe there’s hope. Lynch is certainty not against doing television, if his recent guest-spot on the last season of “Louie” is any indication, and based on TNT’s recent success bringing “Dallas” back to the airwaves, we imagine there will be a huge fan base ready to tune in. There might not be much to this story yet, but we imagine it’s not the last we’ll be hearing about it.
