Twin Peaks is returning as a 9 episode miniseries on Showtime in 2016. Lynch and Frost are going to write all the episodes, and Lynch is going to direct all of them as well. Sounds like MacLachlan will be returning as well.

Skye's father is going to be in it?  awesome, for real

Could be good, though I thought the movie wrapped up what needed to be said about the series and Agent Cooper.

It's been so long it's hard to remember.  Wasn't the movie a prequel to the series?

Over and out.

TL:Dr; yes it was a prequel. They also released a book, Laura Palmer's Diary, during the series run.

In the middle of the movie, Agent Cooper appeared to Laura Palmer in bed saying he was trapped in the Black Lodge and couldn't get out. That was all I needed to hear.

He's there at the end too when Laura is trapped in the Black Lodge and he puts an arm around her shoulder.

David Lynch has left the project (Showtime might keep going forward with it, though) :

Fucking butthead. Don't announce all that shit and then walk away due to budget constraints with your No-Actual-Stars script. Dick.

So, two hour (first two episodes) premiere on Showtime May 21st, with episodes 3 and 4 available digitally right after, and then an episode a week after that (although I assume they'll be airing 3 and 4 on Showtime over the next two weeks before any new episodes come out). 18 episodes total all directed by Lynch and written by Lynch and Frost. A lot of the original cast appear to be returning as well as some new people like frequent Lynch collaborator Laura Dern.

What I find intriguing is that he said he's doing this as basically a long movie that is broken up into one hour chunks.

That does see like a David Lynch thing to do. A lot of Mulholland Drive was originally filmed as a pilot episode for a series, but you'd never really know it because I don't think he alters his style much regardless of what he's making.

Have I already predicted that this is going to be crap? Because it will be, and I tend to be that guy...

I think Haem already hedged his bets in that regard, so I'd only be on the podium.

If Lynch is actually involved in all of it, it could be good. However, his last few movies have made me apoplectic with rage at the willful disregard for the idea of a coherent narrative so this could actually be 18-hours of self-indulgent pretentious wankery.

All I know is the original series was at its best when he was directly involved and when the network didn't interfere. "You need to reveal Laura Palmer's killer" anyone?

He may be like a lot of film makers who seem to succumb to their worst impulses as they age. George Lucas, Tim Burton and Ridley Scott I'm looking at you!

I do have some hope though because he has Mark Frost involved and those 2 worked on the series together. So if David Lynch goes too far off of the reservation I think Mark Frost will help pull him back. He seems to be the Gary Kurtz to David Lynch's George Lucas.

Pretty much the only thing going for this is the fact that it's Lynch doing it instead of it being just a rehash banking on nostalgia if it was done by someone else (and even if I don't always like Lynch at least he's competent and does it with his own style).

Lynch, like Cronenberg, is so weirdly niche and distinct that his worse impulses aren't going to hurt him any more than his best ones do. His basic composition skills have improved as he's aged, and his iconoclastic weirdness has been there from the beginning. This will appeal to his fans while confusing and frustrating everybody else.

Just like anything else he's been involved in. Ever.

You can get coherent narratives anywhere. I can't think of too many other people who can construct a narrative like Lynch. While with Inland Empire I was maybe lost a lot more than with most of his work I don't think I'd call any of his stuff self-indulgent or pretentious. His movies aren't for everyone though and a lot of them require some work to really get something out of them.

That said he hasn't really done any narrative work other than shorts in the last decade, and Frost was partially responsible for the Fantiastic Four and Rise of the Silver Surfer screenplays, so there's absolutely reason to be skeptical about a follow up to a show from 25 years back.
