Director David Lynch, who was behind the original ABC series “Twin Peaks,” threw a layer of mystery onto a planned reboot of the series that he has reportedly been working on with Showtime.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Lynch said on Australian TV: “We’re still working on the contract. But I love the world of ‘Twin Peaks.'”
“But a source close to the production said that the deal for the show remains in place and the network loves the scripts it has seen,” the Times reports. “Nine episodes have been ordered, but nothing has been shot.”
The report notes that Lynch does not seem to be trying to clear the air. “His Twitter account, which has more than 2 million followers, hasn’t been updated in more than two months,” the Times reports. “The last message contained a photo of [Kyle] MacLachlan, welcoming him back to the world of ‘Twin Peaks.'”
Lynch got together with Showtime last year to announce that the series would return in 2016, with MacLachlan reportedly back on board as FBI agent Dale Cooper. At the time, Lynch tweeted to his fans: “It is happening again.”
Here’s a teaser Showtime posted to promote the reboot:
