MacLachlan: No Talk About More “Twin Peaks”

Everyone’s still talking about the mind-bending two-part season finale of “Twin Peaks: The Return” which will be long debated for much of the near future.

Of course one immediate question exists – will there be more? The new season was always dubbed a limited series, not a revival in the sense of an ongoing show, even as the eighteen episode run ended with something of a cliffhanger not unlike the main series did back in the 1990s.

Unlike the 1990s show though, this was the pure modern Lynch we glimpsed in the likes of “Inland Empire,” heading down into a dark pit of chaos with each minute and yielding a very divisive reaction from audiences. The last two episodes in particular are going to confound people for many years to come.

Speaking with Deadline, series star Kyle MacLachlan says that despite that apparent cliffhanger of a final moment, don’t hold your breath for more episodes: “Well, I know for a fact there are no discussions for more Twin Peaks. That’s where that is.” MacLachlan also says he’s still processing that finale:

“I don’t know – I’m very moved by it. It was a traumatic moment at the end, obviously. How to interpret that is open to so many possibilities, I feel. I’m not even sure where I am on that. We filmed it very early and coming back to it now, it’s incredibly powerful – particularly with Sheryl Lee and that fantastic blood-curdling scream in the middle of the night in a small neighborhood in Seattle.”

All of “Twin Peaks: The Return” is now available to stream via Showtime’s on demand apps.
