Earlier today, David Lynch spoke to BBC Entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson about his influences, how he got the idea for The Alphabet, his refusal to direct Return of the Jedi, and of course, the one thing he won’t talk about until 2016, the new series of Twin Peaks.
I know now I’m gonna do nine new episodes of Twin Peaks. That’s the next thing. […] Well, all these things are now top secret.
When asked which episode he’s on at the moment, perhaps the co-creator and director did reveal something by saying nothing:
You’ll see some results in a year and a half, I hope.
UPDATE: In addition, he told The Guardian: “I wish I could snap my fingers and we could get Twin Peaks out right now but it is going to be a while. […] We’re not able to even get started because the contracts haven’t been signed.”
Of course, nothing is set in stone at this point, but a year and half from now is a little more specific than just “2016“, and it sounds like we might see a premiere halfway 2016. Could that be June 10 2016, exactly 25 years after the season two finale aired? Only (Show)time —and probably not David Lynch— will tell, but we’ll be waiting like the Man From Another Place in the Red Room.
