Daving Lynch has had a change of heart and will be returning to Twin Peaks after all
The future of the Twin Peaks revival seemed rocky after series director David Lynch said that he wouldn’t be returning to the show. Thankfully that was all a big ruse, or something. As Lynch is back on board and the show has begun preproduction. It seems Showtime has made Lynch an offer he can’t refuse.
Initially Lynch revealed that he wouldn’t be returning to the series revival as there was “enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.” Fortunately for fans of the cult classic, Showtime must have reached deep into their pockets as this weekend Lynch confirmed that the show must go on and he’ll be at the helm.

Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement:
“This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever, totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Preproduction starts now!!”
Lynch is set to direct every episode of the series which was originally set to run for 9 episodes, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Showtime has ordered a handful more.
There’s currently no current premier date.
