CBS Chief Les Moonves Reveals TWIN PEAKS Revival To Premiere On Showtime In 2017!

Looks like we will have to wait awhile longer for the highly-anticipated reboot of the cult classic ABC primetime soap, Twin Peaks! The quirky series from David Lynch and Mark Frost, which is currently in production in Washington state, but has had plenty of stops and starts, just got its official year premiere after much back and forth.

On a third-quarter earnings conference call with CBS Corporation chief, Les Moonves made the annoucement and clarification on when viewers would get to revist Twin Peaks.  Variety reports that the limited series would premiere in 2017, and that Moonves touted it as a property that will likely drive subscriptions of Showtime’s newly launched standalone broadband offering.

The Twin Peaks sequel has been in the works for more than a year. But the project hit a speedbump earlier this year when Lynch and Showtime tussled over budget issues and the number of episodes to be produced. They wound up hammering out a deal that calls for the production of “more than nine” episodes, all directed by Lynch.

Kyle MacLachlan is back in the lead role as Agent Dale Cooper, and many original stars and new additions have been noted to the press.  

So, will you be patiently waiting for the Twin Peaks revival in 2017? Comment below!

I didn’t realize that CBS has part ownership in the Showtime Network.

Looking forward to the new Twin Peaks. But I was even more excited about CBS bringing back StarTrek until I found out it wouldn’t run on network TV but only on CBS Access, a subscription service that you have to pay for. What a stupid way to discourage a broader fan base.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
