Will he or won’t he?

That seems to be the big question about whether Showtime can convince David Lynch to return to Twin Peaks.

Over the weekend, Lynch wrote on both Facebook and Twitter that he had left the production due to budgetary disputes:

Showtime and Lynch have been wrangling over the show for a while, with Lynch publicly saying the negotiations weren’t shaping up the way he’d like. Lynch did follow up his tweet with his official drop-out news with this one, saying that the production might still happen without him:

According to Variety, Showtime issued this statement: “We were saddened to read David Lynch’s statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. Showtime also loves the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.”

Set to air in 2016, Lynch and co-creator Frost had already written nine episodes that were due to start filming this year. Who knows what will happen next, but here’s hoping the network and Lynch can work something out.
