When I said on New Year’s Eve that I had the sense that something better was on the horizon, I was lying.
Fearful that a significant number of you might take your lives while watching Ryan Seacrest usher in the new year, I decided to scrap the article that I’d been working on… which was an in-depth treatise on how little there is to live for in modern America… and instead write a vacuous little fluff piece about how, despite all the recent setbacks, things were finally beginning to turn in our favor. Good things, I said, are right around the corner.
Well, it looks like I may not have been that far off after all. I know it’s just an internet rumor at this point, but, according to an anonymous source, Twin Peaks might be coming back for a third season after a 20-year hiatus!
[A larger version of this anonymous post, written by someone who claims to have been in a meeting with David Lynch and NBC executives, can be found here.]
According to the source, the third season, which would be set in today’s Twin Peaks, and include most of the original characters, would center around a female news reporter trying to unravel the secrets of the town, and the events leading up to the arrest of the possessed Dale Cooper for murder.
I know it’s likely bullshit, but it’s good to have something to live for again.
