For fans of the cult classic television series Twin Peaks, the chance for a reboot has both excited as well as made them nervous. While, on the one hand, it will be great to revisit the eerie atmosphere, there is the chance that the new series commissioned by Showtime will be nothing compared to the original.
However, it seems, regardless of whether you are looking forward to the Twin Peaks reboot or just want to see how bad it might turn out to be, fans will have to wait a whole year longer than anticipated. Uproxx recently uncovered an interview with Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost while he was attending the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
“This was a trip to complete my family heritage of bringing the different male members of my family to the Hall. I brought my father here previously, and this time I got to bring my 11-year-old son Travis, which was a great thrill. And we have a pro player in the family [Frost’s nephew is Washington Nationals highly regarded pitcher prospect Lucas Giolito], and Travis has aspirations in that direction, so this is like a trip to heaven for him.”
While it may have been exciting for Frost to make the pilgrimage to the the museum, for Twin Peaks fans, it is the following statement he made there that will interest them more:
“We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”
Fans may be disappointed with this delay of a year, but Mark Frost cited he wanted to “try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time,” which, to Twin Peaks fans, will no doubt be a blessing.
If you can’t wait that long, why not check out the Twin Peaks pop-up restaurant that is expected to appear in London from next month. It will go by the name The Owls Are Not What They Seem and you can find out all the details below courtesy of Metro:
“The whole thing will be taking place at a secret location in Central London from August 27 – October 17, with tickets – costing £65 – on sale from midday on Friday July 17.”

If you can’t get to London, why not check out the latest Twin Peaks book? It is expected this book will hit the shelves late in 2015 and will pick up where the series left off in 1991. The book, titled The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks, will be written by Mark Frost and, according to the publisher Flatiron Books, it “reveals what has happened to the people of that iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago and offers a deeper glimpse into the central mystery that was only touched on by the original series.”
