The return to the Twin Peaks TV series was in a bit of trouble recently when original creator and director David Lynch bailed on the project over budgetry issues and it seems like everything was set to fall apart.
Now its all change as Lynch is definitely back in the driving seat, working with the Showtime network once more to get everything set up. And it seems like he'll have ever more weirdness to play with as the original 9 episode run has been expanded to 18!
The news come from stars Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn, who were answering questions at Seattle's Crypitcon event. And they really didn't hold back, casually admitting that there would now be 18 episodes (which is a very long season for non-network TV) and that the original diner from the show is being restored so they can shoot on location in North Bend, Washington State. It's changed quite a bit in the meantime.
They're also hoping to shoot in the original Sheriff station for that authentic feel and there are more comments about returning characters and working with the music by Angelo Badalamenti again.
Therre's a lot of information to process and you can hear it all about it from Laura and Audrey here.
Twin Peaks series three will air some time in 2016.
