When On-Air On-Soaps spoke with now Daytime Emmy winner, Ray Wise (Ex-Ian Ward, Y&R) on the red carpet at the 42nd Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards about if he would be reprising his role as Leland Palmer/Killer BOB on the iconic series reboot of Twin Peaks, Ray said it he could not confirm or deny at the time, but it was more than 50/50, and it that he hoped that David Lynch and Showtime’s disagreement would be worked out, so production could continue to move forward! Well, it has!
Fantastic news this afternoon from Twin Peaks creator David Lynch is that the bizarre soapy drama that first aired on ABC more than 25 years ago is coming back, and that Lynch is back on board the project too! Lynch announced via Twitter stating: “Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ….. It is !!! Happening again.
#TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network”
That was followed up by statement from Showtime’s David Nevins: “This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark (Frost) 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. Pre production starts now!!” From the reports today, it looks like there will be more than the original 9 episodes being filed in the limited series revival!
Next series star, Kyle MacLachlan got in on the news tweeting a pic of some of the more familiar characters of Twin Peaks surrounding him in his role as Agent Dale Cooper in a nod to Wizard Of Oz, “But it wasn’t a dream. It was a place. And you and you and you…and you were there… Good to be home. #TwinPeaks ”
Could this mean that just killed-off General Hospital star Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke Lavery) can return to the revival of Peaks as Dick Tremayne? We hope so!
