'Twin Peaks' Premiere Pushed Back to 2017
LOS ANGELES - "Twin Peaks" fans will have to wait a little longer to see the show's reboot on Showtime, says its creator Mark Frost told a gathering at the Baseball Hall of Fame.
“A lot of people always look back at ‘Twin Peaks’ and say that was the start of this explosion we’ve had in good television drama, but we did it in a time when there were still only three networks,” Frost said. “The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time. We’re coming back with season three of ‘Twin Peaks’ after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”
The show's was announced in November by the network, with its debut scheduled for sometime in 2016. The show originally ran on ABC in 1990-91, telling the story of an idiosyncratic FBI agent who investigates the murder of a young woman in the even more idiosyncratic town of Twin Peaks.
