With Lynch's Return, "Twin Peaks" Goes Home and Doubles

Perhaps David Lynch realized what a nasty trick it was to say, "Hey, 'Twin Peaks' Freaks! I'm going to direct nine new episodes of 'Twin Peaks'--on second thought, no I'm not!" because he's been making some serious amends lately. First he said that after re-negotiations with Showtime he would be directing those new episodes after all. Then Showtime CEO indicated that there would be more than a mere nine new shows. Now, according to "Peaks" stars Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn, we can expect eighteen new episodes in the series' delayed third season (no word yet on whether those episodes would be contained in one season or spread across two yet). Speaking on a panel at Seattle's Crypticon today, they revealed some more details that are sure to please the devoted. Firstly, and most importantly as far as I'm concerned, original "Peaks" maestro Angelo Badalamenti will be composing the score. This is major since Badalamenti's too-dreamy music is as integral to the series as having Lynch behind the camera and Lee and Fenn in front of it. Secondly, the entire new series will be filmed in the North Bend/Snoqualmie, WA, area. Only the pilot episode of the original series was shot on location-- studio sets sufficed for the rest of them-- so this is an interesting development that indicates the pilot's cinematic quality will extend through the entire return to "Twin Peaks". Once again, Twede's Cafe in North Bend will be the setting of the Double R Diner. Thanks to Welcome to Twin for announcing this delightful news.
