David Lynch comments on Twin Peaks season 4 possibilities


David Lynch sounds suspiciously circumspect regarding the possibility of more Twin Peaks.

When discussing the likelihood of a fourth season following the acclaimed season three of Twin Peaks — which aired 25 years after the last episode of season two — writer/director/actor David Lynch was maddeningly vague and non-committal, but encouragingly hopeful.

When talking with Deadline, Lynch said simply, “Well, for right now, you could say I don’t want to talk about that.”

While it isn’t exactly a yes, it’s not exactly a no either — a perfectly cryptic answer that is perfectly typical coming from Lynch.

Elsewhere in the interview, Lynch talks about television and how it’s the new arthouse medium — a place to experiment and tell long-form stories.

“It’s pretty beautiful, but it’s not the big screen, so there’s a little bit of sorrow in the picture and a little bit of sorrow in the sound,” expounds Lynch.

Sounds like he’s in love. Lynch implies that whatever he does next, it will likely be for television — so maybe not season four of Twin Peaks, but it’s not out of the question.

Heaven knows that if Lynch did decide to do more Twin Peaks, he’d have plenty of support. The new season was well received at Showtime, fans would devour anything that Lynch threw at them, and Kyle MacLachlan is practically already on board to reprise his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper.

“I think those kinds of things are certainly possible. I think we’re all just waiting on David to have the spark of an idea to go forward,” said MacLachlan. “It’d be a great journey. I would drop everything to do that.”

At the same time, if fate doesn’t bring us more Twin Peaks, season three left us with one heck of an amazing, memorable, and haunting ending.
