Well, darn: Twin Peaks co-creator crushes our hopes of a rumored revival

A bizarre casting call that’s been making the rounds had Twin Peaks fans giddy with hope that series creator David Lynch might be cooking up some new Peaks-related coolness, but those dreams have now been squashed. 

Despite its brief two-season run, the weirdly awesome early-'90s series about murder and a small town loaded with secrets still inspires devoted fan love, almost like a Firefly for the grunge era. It’s also gone on to inspire countless modern-day series, including A&E’s Psycho prequel Bates Motel.

That explains why this alleged casting report caused such a stir when it popped up:

"TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 ... HOT Caucasian girl, BRUNETTE OR REDHEADS ONLY, to play waitress. Age 18-27. MUST have an amazing body. Busty, very period looking face."

Though a full-fledged revival would’ve been awesome, most fans took the post to mean Lynch was coming back to shoot a new promo for a home release of the existing series. But still, just a promo or not, having Lynch creating any new Peaks content would’ve been awesome.

Fellow co-creator Mark Frost has sadly chimed in to debunk the odd casting call:

So, let’s dig back into those DVDs and relive the glory days a few more times, because it looks like we still have a while to wait until Twin Peaks comes back to life.
