If you’ve been looking forward to the return of the creep-tacular Twin Peaks, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
According to Variety, the cult favorite is being pushed back to premiere in 2017. That’s a year later than originally planned, which had it starting in 2016 on Showtime.
The news came during a CBS third-quarter earnings call. Variety reports that CBS chief Leslie Moonves said that it was being pushed back and “touted it as a property that will likely drive subscriptions of Showtime’s newly launched standalone broadband offering.”
The relaunch of Twin Peaks has had its fair share of issues returning to the small screen. Earlier this year, creator/director David Lynch actually left the project for a short time, citing budgetary issues. Variety reports they resolved those problems and agreed upon “more than nine” episodes, all to be directed by Lynch.
So stay tuned? Let’s hope Showtime can keep this project from meeting the same fate as Laura Palmer.
