Rumors are flying. Some encouraging it, some denying. David Lynch has reportedly met with NBC to consider a reboot of Twin Peaks. Like many internet rumors, it’s probably just someone taking us for a ride, but what a ride! David Lynch would arguably be at his best and, with the respectability of an elder statesman of American cinema, able to command respect from the studios. Ahead of his time in the 1990s, now the public is accustomed to the format of a long unfolding television drama…that he pioneered.
Here’s the rumor in a nutshell…
David Lynch has met with NBC executives to discuss a reboot for a new season of “Twin Peaks.”
- Lynch wants to be very hands-on on the project.
- Lynch wants most of the original cast back.
- Lynch wants the new season to start by recreating the first red room scene from season 1.
- The new season will take place in the present day.
Regardless of the veracity of the rumor, we can dream, right?
What do you say? Would you embrace a reboot of Twin Peaks for 2013?
*Maybe if we have over a 100,000 votes, David Lynch will take the hint–rumor or not!
The final episode ended with Agent Cooper waking up in his bed at the Great Northern Hotel. Cooper asks about Annie, and Harry tells him that Annie is at the hospital and will be all right. Cooper gets up out of bed and tells Harry and Doc Hayward that he needs to brush his teeth. Once in the bathroom, he begins to put toothpaste on a brush, but then squeezes the tube’s contents into the sink. He slowly raises his head, looks into the mirror and smashes his head into it, bloodying the glass. BOB’s face appears in the mirror. As Harry and Doc knock on the door in concern, Cooper maniacally repeats, “How’s Annie?” and laughs uncontrollably.
Beginning season 3 with a demon possessed Agent Cooper pretty much opens up a whole world of possibilities.
