Is the reboot for the ?90s TV series Twin Peaks still happening even though David Lynch left the production?

Twin Peaks is one of the cult classics of the ?90s and was well received by fans all over the world.?As stated on their wiki page, the show was one of the top-rated TV series of 1990. The original serial drama was first created by Mark Frost and David Lynch.

Recent news for the reboot however is saddening due to David Lynch?s decision of leaving the director?s chair and the whole production.

David Lynch leaving the set of Twin Peaks reboot

On his Twitter statement, David Lynch confirms that he will not take the directing role for the reboot. He said ?This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime.?

According to the report made by The Guardian, everything was already set in motion. The scripts for the new nine episodes have already been penned by the director and his co-creator from the original series Mark Frost. This is a huge disappointment for the fans that have waited for this show to go back to the small screen.

The real reason behind all of this is budget. He said on one of his Twitter statement ?After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.?

Don?t lose your hope just yet though. The studio, Showtime, is still hopeful that all of this will turn around and proceed with airing the reboot with Lynch and Frost as the head, as stated on Seattle Times.

One memorable character from the series will come back for the reboot!

In a different report from The Guardian, it was revealed there that Kyle Maclachlan is going to reprise his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper?the one in charge of the investigation for the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. He will once again dive into the mysterious land of Twin Peaks and try to uncover the baffling death of Laura Palmer.
