Twin Peaks Season Three Now Set for 2017

Don't worry Twin Peaks fans. The gum you like is still coming back in style. However, you will have to wait a bit longer than expected to get it. The upcoming third season of the cult classic will be delayed from its expected 2016 launch until 2017. While no clear reason was given for the delay (the season is now set to be a full 18 hours of content, rather than the nine initially announced, although Showtime- which will be airing the series- is still saying it will only be nine episodes long), co-writer Mark Frost announced the delay earlier this week.


In terms of specifics, the series will begin shooting this September, with David Lynch set to direct all installments (which he co-wrote with Frost). Kyle MacLachlan is definitely back as Agent Cooper, while Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey) and Sheryl Lee (Laura/Maddy Palmer) have all also confirmed their involvement. Nothing is known about the plot, only that the series will be set 25 years after the show's divisive second season finale cliffhanger. The extra year wait is a bummer (and it makes the Laura Palmer quote from the second season finale less prescient), but after 25 years, what's one more?
