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.
