Co-creator David Lynch had previously said that if he and Showtime were to shake hands on another season of “Twin Peaks”, it’d be years before we see it.
During the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Showtime president of programming Gary Levine expressed interest in doing more “Twin Peaks”, noting that the ball is in Lynch and Mark Frost’s court.
“We’re thrilled with “Twin Peaks.” The work was extraordinary, the fan reaction was extraordinary and it was incredibly good for our brand. Remember it took 25 years for Mark and David to go from 1.0 to 2.0. Add to that, what David did in the last few years was nothing short of Herculean. To direct 18 episodes of television belongs in the Guinness book, and wrote, and starred and edited and composed. It’s a Herculean task and he did it so beautifully, I don’t know how soon he wants to do it. The door at Showtime is always open to Mark and David for “Twin Peaks” or anything else they want to talk about.”
Though not a ratings blitzer, Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” reportedly upped the cabler’s subscription numbers significantly.
