Everything seemed so promising for its return, with Showtime fully behind it, a fresh teaser created, and Kyle MacLachlan all but confirming he would return as Special Agent Dale Cooper, but it seems contract talks have run aground.
"I'm not sure at this point if it's happening," Lynch told an audience in Brisbane, when asked about the series, adding that there were "complications".
The website Welcome to Twin Peaks says that a 'trusted source' told them that while the scripts are finished, contract negotiations aren't going as expected.
Given the huge demand for the new season I'd be very surprised if it was aborted, but the 2016 release date might have to be pushed back.
Asked again about show this week, Lynch was more optimistic, saying: "I haven't returned yet and we're still working on the contract, but I love the world of Twin Peaks and I love those characters. And I think it will be very special to go back into that world."
