'Twin Peaks' Delayed Until 2017

During a visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, "Twin Peaks" co-creator Mark Frost revealed that the series won't be arriving on Showtime until 2017, according to WelcometoTwinPeaks.com.

"We're coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence," Frost said during the visit. "We've finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017."

Originally, the show's other co-creator, David Lynch, estimated a 2016 premiere for the long-anticipated follow-up series but it appears plans have changed. Whether or not Lynch's recent departure and return to the series or the upped episode order might have influenced this change is unknown.

The Showtime "Twin Peaks" series -- not a reboot, but a continuation of the original -- was made official this past October. Lynch and Frost have written all initial nine episodes. Series star Kyle MacLachlan is among the cast members set to return for the miniseries. The original "Twin Peaks," praised for its compelling mystery and surrealistic style, reached cult status during and after its two-season run from 1990 to 1991 on ABC.
