Well, after 25 years, 2017 finally saw Twin Peaks get a third season. While reactions to the season were all over the map at times, it’s safe to say that many fans would be interested in seeing even more of their favorite mountain town.
During a recent chat with EW, Twin Peaks co-creator David Lynch addressed the possibility of a fourth season, and the good news is that he didn’t completely rule it out. The bad news is that if season four happens, it probably won’t be for a really long time. Here’s what he had to say.
“No, we haven’t talked [to Showtime]. The thing just finished! Even if there was more, it would be four years from now before anyone would see it. We’ll just have to wait and see.
For those who may have missed it, Lynch recently said that it took him about four years to write and film season three. Thus, he logically believes that it would take him at least that time to produce a season four, and that’s not from now, that’s from whenever he might decide to start writing.
When pressed on whether he had any ideas yet for a fourth season, Lynch insisted that he couldn’t talk about that subject, which honestly sounds a lot more like a confirmation than a denial. After all, if he didn’t have any ideas, why not just say no?
Elsewhere during the same interview, Lynch was asked about the season three finale, which many fans thought lacked adequate resolution to the series’ many dangling plot threads. His response was perfect.
“Some things came to a conclusion. And some things dangled out there. And that’s sort of the way it is in life.”
That it is, Mr. Lynch. That it is.
