The news is confirmed by David Nevins, Director of TV company Showtime.
– David will be directing everything, and it will totally be more than nine hours as said earlier, he said in a statement adding that filming should begin “immediately”.
David Lynch announced in April that he dropped out of the new round of the 1990′s large cult series. The reason was that Showtime was not prepared to spend as much money as Lynch felt was needed in the production. The actors from the ensemble then started an intensive campaign to Lynch would return. 13,000 people also wrote on a petition online. And obviously had the effect of:
“Dear Sherilyn Fenn … Twin Peaks is officially finished! You and the gang played a major role in this was the … Thanks to you all,” writes Lynch an email to the actress, who made the role of Audrey Horne in the series, which she then posted on Twitter.
“Damn good cup of coffee”
In the new season, Kyle MacLachlan also reprise the role of Agent Cooper.
– This pretty damn good cup of coffee from Mark (Frost) and David tastes better than ever, said Nevins in a reference to agent Coopers recurring, classic replica “damn Fine Coffee “.
