Late last year it was quite publicly announced that there would be a continuation of the ABC cult series Twin Peaks, which originally ran from 1990-1991. The return was previously rumoured after a notorious scene in that original’s finale that seemed to hint at a new series in fifteen years.
Well, despite the announcement and in one of the messiest PR situations I’ve seen, series creator and legendary director David Lynch soon exited the continuation, citing “complications” (pay dispute).
That nasty business is over with now and the series is confirmed to be returning in 2016 on Showtime with Lynch to return and direct even more episodes than originally planned.
Wanna bet Lynch got everything he asked for and more in this situation? I bet Showtime fired some publicists after that mess.
