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.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
