‘Twin Peaks’ Sequel Novel To Explore Show’s Characters Ahead of Showtime Revival

Ahead of Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” revival, slated to hit screens in 2016, series co-creator Mark Frost will write a tie-in novel that will span the period between the original ABC series and the new season.

Titled “The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks,” the novel 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,” according to publisher Flatiron Books.

Of the book deal, Mark Frost said, “[Flatiron president] Bob Miller and I have enjoyed a fantastic fifteen year relationship in publishing. This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ to life, for old fans and new. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

The novel will hit shelves in late 2015, before the series arrives on Showtime. Show creators Frost and David Lynch are writing the scripts for all nine new episodes, with Lynch planning to direct the entire run.
