It’s been a long and bumpy road so far for Showtime’s reboot of cult classic Twin Peaks but now that creator/director David Lynch is back on board, fans can breathe a sigh of relief and focus more on the sparse details we’ve been given about where the show may be headed.
During a panel at Crypticon, in Seattle, Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee revealed that the show’s third series will have 18 episodes rather than the initially slated nine. Hopefully, with David Lynch once again at the helm, this will mean fans are in for a sustained, driven narrative rather than endless filler episodes.
It was also announced that the man who scored the original show as well as many of Lynch’s other projects, Angelo Badalamenti, has become the latest alum to sign on to the project. Badalamenti’s original surreal soundtrack helped create the show’s memorably haunting atmosphere. These latest snippets of information are only adding to the show’s hype which is slated for a 2016 run.
