Twin Peaks fans’ quarter-century wait is over. One of the top cult series of all time is coming back with a new limited series on Showtime from its original creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost. The nine-episode series will go into production in 2015 for a premiere in 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of when the series finished its run on ABC. In a fact that will delight Twin Peaks devotees, Lynch and Frost will write and produce all nine episodes, with Lynch set to direct every episode.
I'm pretty geeked up about this. Twin Peak was one of those shows I watched each week with rapt attention. Maybe my mad crush on Audrey Horn had something to do with it.

I actually didn't think he would fulfill that. Interesting... And it could certainly be an utter failure. Still, he has my interest. Anyone know if Frost is still alive?
You mean Mark Frost? He's the Executive Producer and is working with Lynch on this (see quote in OP).
The two of them have remained close all these years and have long discussed the possibility, but it's been very hit or miss until they finally approached Showtime about it recently. I think they figured the time was right to fulfill Laura Palmer's promise to Dale Cooper that she'll "see you again in 25 years."
(Oh, and to my fellow Twin Peaks-philes, Psych had a fairly humorous Twin Peaks homage show in its fifth season- Dual Spires. Many of the cast of Twin Peaks had cameo roles on it.)
I'm definitely interested in seeing this, but I think anyone that expects answers from Lynch in this second visitation will be disappointed. And honestly, let's say they do explain just what the Hell is going on in that town, what the beings in the Black Lodge are, what BOB was, everything. No matter the explanation, it won't be good enough for the fans. Remember the disappointment we all felt after Star Wars Episode I? Part of that was due to the fact that it wasn't a great story, to be sure, but a larger part of it was due to the fact that they were trying to top a cinematic phenomenon.
I'm sure it'll be an entertaining ride. I just don't expect any more answers than we've been given. That said, I am curious to see what they'll do with the Agent Cooper problem.
"How's Annie?" indeed.
