Showtime Reveals a TWIN PEAKS Teaser That's DAMN Good Coffee!
Remember...A path is formed by laying one stone at a time.
Deadline has details from Showtime's presentation at the Television Critics Association, with Showtime president David Nevins that Twin Peaks will go into production starting in September.
According to the article, "(David) Lynch is set to direct all episodes. He and (Mark) Frost actually wrote one long script. Lynch will shoot the series continuously as a movie, and later cut it into episodes. Originally envisioned as being nine episodes, the series will likely run longer but the exact number of episodes is still in flux and won’t be known until after filming is completed."
Nevins wouldn't reveal any casting for the Twin Peaks revival apart from the previously announced return of star Kyle MacLachlan. The casting for the series, it turns out, will be handled by Lynch’s company). However, Nevins did say "you should be optimistic that the people you want to be there will be there, in addition to some surprises."
Twin Peaks was previously expected to arrive in 2017, but there's hope that the revival could be ready for 2016. "I’ll take it when it’s ready," said Nevins. "I hope that’s sooner rather than later."
ComingSoon has more details, with Nevins quoted as saying, "This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark 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."
In addition, Showtime revealed the teaser image above, showing a cup of coffee black as midnight on a moonless night that MacLachlan's character Dale Cooper prefers. However, hidden in the circular reflection (circles and mirrors played a big part in the series) is the entrance to the town of Twin Peaks.
The official Showtime account on Twitter also posted the image, with the following message...
Twin Peaks is scheduled to return on Showtime in late 2016...or 2017. We'll see what happens.
