article imageDavid Lynch to make 'Twin Peaks' return after all

By AFP     May 16, 2015 in Entertainment

Surrealist filmmaker David Lynch announced that he will direct the sequel of the cult classic "Twin Peaks" television series, a month after saying a pay dispute had scuttled his return.

"Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ..... It is!!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network," he wrote and was retweeted more than 9,000 times in just a few hours.

The US television network Showtime announced in the fall that the series, based on a small-town murder in quirky Twin Peaks, would return as a limited series in 2016, 25 years after the show's last airing.

But in April, Lynch told his 2.4 million Twitter followers that after more than a year of negotiations "I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done".

His apparent about-turn was greeted with joy by diehard fans -- and at least one star of "Twin Peaks".

Kyle MacLachlan, who played FBI Agent Dale Cooper in the original series and is reprising his role, tweeted: "Welcome back again!! #TwinPeaks Special Agent Dale Cooper! on #Showtime #damnfinecoffee."

The two seasons of "Twin Peaks" that aired in 1990 and 1991 were followed by a movie, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me".
