Back in January, when a hoax spread that Twin Peaks would return to television for a 3rd season, film director and author of the Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, Jennifer Lynch stepped up to shoot the rumor down by posting the following Facebook status update: “I AM PUTTING TO REST ALL STORIES OF TWIN PEAKS RETURN. THIS IS NOT HAPPENING.”
Twin Peaks co-creator, Mark Frost, backed that up by tweeting the following:
Dear Internet: You are very good at spreading rumors. Truth is more valuable and much harder to come by. Sincerely yours, @mfrost11

At yesterday’s final Twin Peaks Series Retrospective Q&A organized by the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles, Jennifer Lynch stated once again that Twin Peaks was not coming back, and this came straight from her dad’s lips. That means she asked him and he definitely rejected the idea.
We know a lot of you would love to see a continuation of the show and that many fans would be willing to chip in. Even Netflix would. But the ultimate decision lies in the hands of David Lynch and Mark Frost. And today, we have the answers of both of them.
You can now uncross your fingers and imagine what happens next. After all, it is a continuing story.
But know this: you’re welcome anytime to fill the donut hole in your post-Peaks life!
And here’s to hoping Frost and Lynch team up and create something again!
