According to Movie Web, thought the delay is not what we hear for first time, as in July Mark Frost disclosed that filming would start in September, while the premiere would be moved to 2017. So the news comes as a confirmation to Frost statement. The 2016 kick-off was noteworthy since the finale took place 25 years ago in 1991.

The “Twin Peaks” sequel has been under filming for more than a year’s time now, but the sequel has been facing couple of ups and downs since Lynch and Showtime scuffled over regards to budget and episode numbers to be produced, while they conclude to produce “more than nine” episodes, helmed by Lynch.

Though there still lies an uncertainty with the number of episodes to be produced, it is known that the script writers are writing a full script instead of individual episodes, hence Lynch will direct “The Twin Peaks” in the form of a full film and then in post-production, he will decide upon each episode. The plot details are yet to be divulged.

There are lot of speculations about the much awaited “Twin Peaks,” especially with the cast line. Till now, it is confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan will join the brand new sequel among the other original cast, while Mädchen Amick, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook are rumored to return.
