Put the coffee on. Twin Peaks might finally be coming back.
Ever since it went off the air in 1991, on a cliffhanger, after two seasons, fans of the delightfully strange mystery drama have been longing for a return to that weird little Washington town. We got a little more Twin Peaks with 1992's prequel film, Fire Walk With Me, but it wasn't enough. More than 20 years later, we still want to go back.
Fortunately, co-creators Mark Frost and David Lynch have never quite let our hopes of a Twin Peaks revival die down. Every now and then a cryptic quote will appear in an interview, or a rumor will surface online, or Lynch will point out that "the town is still there," and we'll all get a little excited, only to find out later that it was nothing. This year, Twin Peaks fans are out in particular force thanks to the release of "The Entire Mystery" box set, and retrospectives and re-examinations of the series are everywhere. Could all of this energy have ignited something within Lynch and Frost?
Friday morning, Lynch tweeted the following:
Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee— David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) October 3, 2014
At almost exactly the same time, Frost tweeted the same thing.
Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style. #damngoodcoffee— Mark Frost (@mfrost11) October 3, 2014
Yes, it's a line spoken by the Man From Another Place that's become one of the most iconic quotes from Twin Peaks. Now, it's possible Lynch and Frost are just having a little fun with us, but this is something that feels like it had to be coordinated between them. It could mean nothing, or it could mean the beginning of something that won't ever come to fruition, or it could mean we're finally getting new Twin Peaks for the first time in more than two decades. Whatever the case, Twin Peaks fans everywhere are itching to see what comes next.
What do you think? Is Twin Peaks really back, or is this just a bit of Twitter fun?
