‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot Pushed to 2017, Co-Creator Mark Frost Says

It’s a bad day for “Twin Peaks” fans.

In news that just surfaced, series co-creator Mark Frost told the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in June that the series won’t return until sometime in 2017.

“A lot of people always look back at ‘Twin Peaks’ and say that was the start of this explosion we’ve had in good television drama, but we did it in a time when there were still only three networks,” said Frost. “The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time. 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.”

The revival, announced by Showtime in October, was originally slated for a 2016 premiere.

The original series ran from 1990 to 1991 on ABC, following a quirky FBI agent investigating the murder of a young woman in the fictional Washington town.
