NEW YORK (AP) — David Lynch’s exit from Showtime’s revival of “Twin Peaks” turned out to be just another plot twist. The drama’s co-creator is back in the fold.
Showtime confirmed Saturday that Lynch is back and will direct new episodes of the series, which originally aired on ABC in the early 1990s. Showtime President David Nevins said Lynch and partner Mark Frost will even make more episodes than the nine originally planned.
Lynch had tweeted late Friday that “the rumors are not what they seem,” and that he was involved again.
It’s not clear what rumors he referred to. Lynch himself had tweeted in early April that he was leaving the “Twin Peaks” reboot because Showtime was not providing enough money.
Terms of his return were not disclosed.
