'Twin Peaks' Revival Won't Premiere Until 2017!


It's almost as if some mystical force is keeping Twin Peaks fans from getting to watch the highly anticipated revival they've been waiting decades to see.

Series co-creator Mark Frost revealed that the cult hit won't be returning to television until 2017 while speaking with the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum back in June, though it seems like no one noticed until now.

"The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time," Frost explained. "We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017."

Showtime first announced that they would be reviving the cult classic in October, and it was originally slated to premiere in 2016.

However, the long-awaited third season has already hit several speed bumps. One of the biggest roadblocks occurred in April when David Lynch announced he would be leaving the project over budget conflicts with the network.

Fans' hopes were raised when Lynch agreed to return to the project in May, but this distant release date could put a damper on everyone's excitement.
