‘Twin Peaks’ Cast Posts Video Asking to Bring Back David Lynch

The cast of “Twin Peaks” banded together to post a video asking to bring back the show’s creator David Lynch after he announced his exit from the upcoming Showtime revival on Sunday.

In the video, the actors complete the analogy “Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like…”

Posted one day before the 25th anniversary of the show’s premiere, the video begins with Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson), and concludes with Lynch’s daughter Jennifer Chambers Lynch, author of the book “The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer.” Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) and yes… even the log lady, Catherine E. Coulson, get in on the plea.

Michael Ontkean (Sheriff Harry S. Truman), Lara Flynn Boyle (Donna Hayward) and Kyle MacLachlan (Special Agent Dale Cooper), who was set to appear in the revival, are among the prominent cast members not appearing in the video.

Lynch cited financial concerns when he dropped out on Sunday, tweeting, “After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.”

For their part, Showtime issued a statement saying the network continues to “hold out hope that we can bring (‘Twin Peaks’) back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.”

The video, which invites fans to come up with their own answers to the prompt, is part of the #savetwinpeaks campaign, which includes a petition on change.org.
