‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot to Start Filming this September

Project Casting

‘Twin Peaks’ revival wills tart filming next month.

David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks’ is returning after a two-decade hiatus. Showtime Network’s president David Nevins announced that the followup series from David Lynch and Mark Frost is expected to start filming in September.

David Lynch will direct all episodes and apparently, he and Frost wrote one long script. Lynch will shoot the series continuously like a movie, and later cut it into episodes. Originally, envisioned as being 9 episodes, the series will likely run longer but the exact number of episodes is still up in the air.

Casting for the series has not been released because it will be handled by Lynch’s company. However, Showtime president revealed “you should be optimistic that the people you want to be there will be there, in addition to some surprises.”

Originally slated for a 2017 premiere, there is hope that Twin Peaks could be ready by 2016. But, there is no pressure on David Lynch. Lynch has complete creative control over the project. “I’ll take it when it’s ready,” Nevins said. “I hope that’s sooner rather than later.”
