In terms of artistry and subscriptions, “Twin Peaks” on Showtime was a success this Summer – generating much conversation amongst cinephiles and on social media, and proving to be some of the most challenging television of recent times.
Ratings wise it was met with a soft reception though, doing only half the numbers of other shows on the network, so there’s no guarantee of its return. Certainly going in, filmmaker David Lynch indicated this eighteen episode run was the end of the line for ‘Peaks’ as far as he was concerned.
Now though, at a recent ‘Online with David Lynch’ event in Belgrade, Lynch is stepping back from that absolute stance just a bit when someone asked him about a possible fourth season. He replied:
“It’s too early to talk about that, if it were to happen, you wouldn’t see anything in the next 2 or 3 years, because the last season took 5 years to make.”
Lynch has highly praised the creative freedom of cable television, and as he has previously said is not the biggest fan of films that offer closed, definitive endings to their story.
“Twin Peaks: The Return” hits DVD and Blu-ray in December.
