Twin Peaks Reboot Pushed Back To 2017 So Says Co-Creator Mark Frost!

Just when you thought we would all be having coffee with Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), Showtime’s revival of the cult classic ABC primetime soap opera, Twin Peaks has been delayed for its debut pushed back to 2017, according to the series co-creator Mark Frost.

The highly-anticipated revival of Twin Peaks from David Lynch and Frost had been moving forward, and then after a dispute with Showtime, Lynch had bowed out, but after some time everyone was back on board, and it was full steam ahead, so we thought into production.   The revival was expected to bow this October of 2016.

In an interview with The Baseball Hall of Fame, Mark Frost was talking about how the original series broke the soap opera mold and then revealed the revival was pushed back to next year:  “We had 32 hours back in 1991-92, and with my partner David Lynch we kind of blew open that genre of the nighttime soap and took it in a whole other direction.  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. 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 original Twin Peaks was one of the quirkiest soaps in history with character such as Killer BOB, Log Lady, and of course Laura Palmer, who was the subject of the murder set in a fictitious town in Washington State.

What do you think of the delay of Twin Peaks? Still excited to see it again some 25  years later?

Su0000 it was interesting from day one and then as it waned on it wasn’t ..Showtime is most likely giving them time to either make a show worth watching or canning the whole idea…They’ve undoubtedly pitched several versions..shot one or two..and it still ain’t what it was or should be..soooo…yeah…that’s a not done..done deal…lol

Disappointed the series is delayed but have no doubt it will be worth the wait with Frost and Lynch writing and directing.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
