David Lynch will direct the entirety of Twin Peaks season 3

Showtime head David Nevins has provided a brief update on the new series of Twin Peaks, confirming that the show’s new run will be at least nine episodes long and that David Lynch will be directing each and every one of them.

“I never had any doubts we were going to get him back,” said Nevins to Collider, when asked about Lynch’s brief departure from the series. “This was a huge priority project to me. It became clear that it was going to take more than nine episodes, which was the originally planned for and budgeted length of the series. I really wanted to get David to direct the whole thing, and he wanted to direct the whole thing. We had to work out the details.”

Nevins was understandably coy as to what exactly we can expect from the new show, although he did hint that many of the key players from the original series will be present and correct. “You should be optimistic that the people that you want will be there, and then there will be some surprises in addition,” he teased.

“I’m hoping we make 2016. It’s not clear. It’s ultimately going to be in their control. They’re going to shoot the whole thing and then they’ll start posting… but I’m hoping sooner rather than later.” Amen to that.
