  1. Slightly off topic… but I would just like to reiterate the fact that the TP ladies are STILL stone cold foxes – even after 25 long years.

    The guys have aged pretty well, too.

  2. The first season of “Twin Peaks” was a Lynch/Frost collaboration. “Fire Walk With Me” was Lynch without Frost. The second season of “Twin Peaks” was Frost, after Lynch walked away–returning to direct the finale. We know what “Twin Peaks” with all Frost and no Lynch will look like, because that’s what we got in Season 2. Though “Fire…” was also not without its detractors, between the film and the second season of the show, I’d take the movie ten times over. However the genius of the first season, with both Lynch and Frost fully engaged, seems to be everyone’s idea of “Twin Peaks” apex. I suppose with Lynch theoretically having already written the scripts, it will be better than, say, JJ Abrams take on it, but with such a unique opportunity to do something wonderful–why fuck it up Showtime?

  3. This is incredible we have to keep spreading this story and keep the pressure on showtime to make sure they get lynch back to direct all 9 episodes!! So proud of the greatest cast on television history for voicing their support!

  4. Thanks for including me! I’m not much of a social media-er, but I made a twitter and instagram just for this! 🙂 I read your site everyday, thank you for everything you do to keep the fire burning! <3 We can do this.

  5. Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like…Solar System without Jupiter and Saturn. Imagine in the film and scientific meaning.

  6. I’m not signing the petition.

    Of course, it is difficult to say what has really happened. But according to some web sources Lynch got all creative freedom and resources to make season three. I understand that his decision to walk out his own project is purely personal.

    Maybe he wanted to give his reward to his meditation center, and that money wasn’t enough, or whatever. As a matter of fact, Lynch has left his associates, business partners, Twin Peaks cast and fans in a very confusing situation. Think about how it must feel to be in Mark Frost’s or Kyle MacLachlan’s position at this very moment. And I bet that those who ever shook hands with Lynch at Showtime are regretting it. Did they want (or deserve) this bad publicity – think again!

    Ding! Ding! Ding! It’s time to wake up.

    I’m sorry I sound so negative but there’s every reason to. I’ve been waiting for season three as long as you have – since the early 90’s. And it seems it’s going to be a long, long wait…

    • I’m sorry, but you are mistaken about a few things. Lynch said straight up that showtime did not want to give him enough money to make the show the quality that he envisioned. He wanted to do right by the loyal fans who have waited 25 years.

      By saying that he flat walked out on Frost and the returning cast is a total assumption on your part. Frost has made no comment that he left on bad terms. In truth, the fact that he personally called each of them to say that he would no longer be a part of something he didn’t think was being done right, shows that he does care. And that the cast is behind him and speaking out about shows this even further.

      And this long, long wait you are talking about… it will be in 2016, regardless of Lynch’s involvement. Showtime has already stated that with or without Lynch, they have the scripts, and will be moving forward.

      Frost and Lynch were the heart, soul, and vision of Twin Peaks (Great cast as well). Large companies buy projects, and then do not treat them correctly, usually ending in reboot after reboot and putting projects on the bottom shelf. I don’t want to see this ruined. But it very much looks that way.

      But at least some people will get what they need for closure.
