The new series of ‘Twin Peaks’ has certainly had its fair share of drama already, and it’s not even aired yet.
First, director David Lynch bowed out, then came back on board. Now comes word the series will comprise 18 episodes instead of the original nine.
Sherilyn Fenn (who played Audrey Horne in the original two series) revealed the news at the Seattle Crypticon convention.
“I think when he [Lynch] did the nine, he realised he needed nine more to really complete it,” she said.
Good news. Or is it? The second series of ‘Twin Peaks’ was much longer than the first (22 episodes to eight), and is widely agreed to have sagged a little in the middle.
Let’s hope Lynch doesn’t lose any steam this time around.
It was also revealed that legendary composer Angelo Badalamenti will return to score the new series. He has worked with Lynch many times, and will provide new music for the series.
The new series is expected to air in 2016. Better get the coffee and cherry pie ready.
