Twin Peaks continuous its developmental limbo as it has been pushed back further to a 2017 release.
The 90s’ cult-television hit was slated for a premiere in 2016 via Showtime as previously anticipated, but Les Moonves, president and CEO of CBS Corporation broke the news to Variety of its delay this week.
Showtime revealed last year their objective of a limited revival of David Lynch’s mystery-thriller, but it caught a snag when the 69-year-old director had an impasse with the tv network regarding the budget and number of episodes for the revival as reported in The Guardian last April.
“After one year and four months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done,” Lynch revealed.
Lynch though was back on board in August to direct after they sorted out everything. He and co-creator Mark Frost both have penned more than a dozen episodes for the renewal.
Kyle MacLachlan, who portrayed FBI agent Dale Cooper, and recently, Miguel Ferrer, who portrayed FBI Forensics Specialists Albert Rosenfield are the only cast members which have been reported to return, A.V. Club reports.
Other cast members David Patrick Kelly (Jerry Horne), Richard Beymer (Ben Horne), Dana Ashbrook (Robert “Bobby” Briggs) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne) have all been rumored to return as cited by the website. Fenn has been seen on the production set of “Twin Peaks.” New cast members, however, have been officially announced which includes Jennifer Jason Leigh (“Amityville: The Awakening”), Peter Sarsgaard (“The Magnificent Seven”), Robert Knepper (“The Hunger Games”) and Amanda Seyfried (” Million Ways to Die in the West”).
Season 3 of Twin Peaks with the tagline “Lost Highway” will be set in the present-day. The limited series will tackle all the ambiguities that were left unanswered in the small fictional town of which the tv series is named after.
