This past Sunday night, the 13th new episode of “Twin Peaks” premiered on Showtime, which means that the revival season is soon coming to an end. The two-hour season finale is set to air on September 3rd, and no matter how many loose ends it wraps up, we expect that fans of the show will be left salivating for more.
So then, will we be getting more? Or should we just be happy with the fact that the show came back at all, which is no minor miracle?
As reported by THR, Showtime CEO David Nevins talked about the future of “Twin Peaks” at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour yesterday. In short, you probably shouldn’t expect another season.
“I don’t think so, but it’s not impossible. [David Lynch and I are] both avoiding the conversation for a while; we want to let the story coalesce and see how people feel at the end,” Nevins said at the event, when asked if more “Twin Peaks” was in store.
As Nevins detailed, the new “Twin Peaks” hasn’t exactly been a ratings juggernaut for Showtime, but it has done well enough on streaming services to make the network happy with the decision to bring it back after 25 years.
“I’m really happy with the performance. It drove our business in a way that almost nothing else could,” he explained. “It’s been interesting and maybe it’s a blinding glimpse of how Netflix looks at the world but [it had] a palpable effect on subscribers even though its overall numbers are not as big as our biggest shows. But it’s had a very palpable effect on subscribers for multiple months now.”
An official decision will not be made until after the current season wraps up.
