Twin Peaks Finale Airs In Two Parts On Sunday, September 3rd

The Red Room

Our journey back to Twin Peaks has an ending.

On Sunday, September 3 from 8 to 10 PM, Showtime will air the two-part finale of the new Twin Peaks. The jump from 9 PM to the 8 PM slot happens earlier, on August 6, due to the season 5 premiere of Ray Donovan. The series will also skip one Sunday, on July 2, due to the 4th of July.

Just like Parts 1 & 2 on May 21, and Parts 3 & 4 on June 4, the final two parts, 17 & 18, will air back-to-back. Will this 15-week event end with another major cliffhanger? Or will Mark Frost and David Lynch have wrapped things up by then?

Don’t miss the new teaser Showtime dropped earlier today!

  1. But that doesn’t make sense. If they air one episode every week after the release of 3&4 on May the 28th, then they will only have one episode left to air on the September the 3rd. Are they going to skip a week? If so, which week?

  2. I have a hard time thinking that Messrs. Frost and Lynch “wrap things up.” After all, leaving unanswered questions is part of their genius.

    Still, having things end in September means that I’ll probably be able to watch the series on Amazon by Christmas. Can’t wait!

  3. The premiere on Sunday, May 21 is 2 hours. If they air one 1-hour episode every Sunday thereafter, that would leave two back-to back 1-hour episodes to air on Sunday, September 3 for a total of 18 hours. It adds up.

  4. But John P., supposedly they are running episodes 3 and 4 back to back on the second Sunday. Either they have changed their mind on that or one of these weeks will not feature a new episode.

  5. I had not heard that they were airing episodes 3 and 4 back to back on the second Sunday. It was my understanding that episodes 3 and 4 would be available On Demand immediately following the 2 hour series premiere on May 21. And then Showtime would air the 3rd episode on Sunday, May 28 and the 4th on Sunday, June 4 in its regular Sunday night time slot. I could be mistaken, but if I’m right, that would mean that if you binge watch the first 4 episodes on May 21, you’ll have to wait 3 weeks, until June 11, to see episode 5.

  6. It seems that there is a real time shift at the end of the Finale. I hope Lynch brings another series next yr. in 2018 to see how Coop + the odd Laura, if it is she, react to a different yr. than when Coop left Twin Peaks and the tough demonic dopple. Coop is killed by Lucy. What will Coop do with Laura?How will he ever get back to see either Diane or Dougie’s wife+son? Lynch cannot leave us all hanging again. There must be a bow tied together at the end of this romp. I am 78 and cannot afford to wait another 25 yrs.
