Twin Peaks episode leaks a week early in Germany

Following last week's highly publicized leak of last Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, another genre TV series has suffered the same fate.

According to Variety, Sky Deutschland was supposed to have released the 13th episode of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks revival (which airs on Showtime this side of the Atlantic), but instead aired episode 14 a week early. Oops.

German fans took to social media to blast the network over the snafu, and Sky Deutschland later offered a mea culpa. In a statement to Variety, the network said:

“Due to an accidently wrong labeling of the broadcasting file of a new episode of Twin Peaks, episode 14 instead of 13 was available on Sky On Demand in Germany for a short period of time this morning.  As soon as we got notice, the episode was removed. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working on making the correct episode available for our customers as soon as possible tonight.”

The network later confirmed the correct Twin Peaks episode was made available Monday night, but because of the leak, spoilers for episode 14 have been making the rounds on social media. The leaked episode, however, doesn't appear to have been released online, and Germany is known for enforcing strict anti-piracy laws.

We also just learned the show won't be getting another season, which will no doubt be a huge blow to fans. What do you think of the accidental Twin Peaks leak?
