‘Twin Peaks’ Returns

Alan Sepinwall:

* There will be nine episodes, all of them written by Lynch & Frost, all of them directed by Lynch.

* The new episodes will be produced next season to air in 2016, which will be 25 years after the show was canceled.

* Showtime will air the previous two seasons in the lead-up to the new miniseries' debut.

* In the statement, Lynch & Frost said, “The mysterious and special world of 'Twin Peaks' is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you.”

I’d be more excited about this if I hadn’t had to force-feed myself almost all of Season 2. The fact that Lynch is directing all of the episodes is promising, though. And you thought ‘True Detective’ had too many red herrings and dead ends?
