For fans of Twin Peaks, it looks like it’s time to pour a new cup of that damn fine coffee and rejoice, as the long-planned revival is back on – with immediate effect.
David Lynch – who announced in April that he had pulled out of the comeback – has announced on Twitter that the revival is back on, with Showtime president David Nevin confirming the director is back on board, as well as revealing that there will be more than the nine episodes originally confirmed.
“David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. “This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark [Frost] and David tastes more delicious than ever. Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected…Pre production starts now!!”

Sheryl Finn, who played Audrey in the original series, tweeted a screenshot of a message she received from Lynch, thanking her and the rest of the cast for their continued attempts to make the comeback a reality.
