'Twin Peaks' Returning? David Lynch and Mark Frost Hint Online


Could the cult TV series Twin Peaks be making a comeback?

Rumors about the return of the Twin Peaks, which aired on ABC from 1990 to 1991, circulate regularly but thanks to a couple of cryptic tweets we might actually be seeing Agent Cooper and gang back on the scene.

On Friday, David Lynch and Mark Frost, creators of the original Twin Peaks series, hinted cryptically that fans could be in for a treat.

Lynch and Frost each tweeted the identical message: "Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee"



The quote is from Twin Peaks episode 3 from season 1, when The Man From Another Place, aka the Dancing Man, tells Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in backwards-frontwards speak that "I've got good news. That gum you like is going to come back in style."

And the "damn good coffee" hashtag refers to Agent Cooper's regular compliment about the java he constantly drinks while attempted to solve mysterious murders in Twin Peaks.

While all we have to go on for the moment are both Lynch and Frost's tweets, fans have been speculating for a while that Twin Peaks may return for a new set of stories.

According to the fan site Welcome to Twin Peaks, actor Ray Wise, who played victim Laura Palmer's father on the show, has his own ideas what a new "Twin Peaks" show or movie might be about:

"They wouldn't remake it," Wise said. "If anything was done, it would be 25 years later. It would never be a remake of anything we already did. Maybe you just didn't mean to use that word, I don't know. A remake, no, but it would be something new and fresh. David always said the town of Twin Peaks is still there; it's still going on whether we watch it or not. So, who knows what'll happen in the future? It would be 25 years later, not anything remade."

Lynch himself answered the question recently at the Lucca Film Festival about the possible continuation of Twin Peaks in either movie or TV format.

"I've always said I love a continuing story," Lynch answered. "To love a world and to be able to go deeper and deeper into that world. So there's always a possibility and you just have to wait and see."

Stay tuned!
