Write it in your diary: Unless David Lynch changes his mind, there will not be another season of Twin Peaks: The Return. Showtime president and CEO David Nevins reinforced this point at the network’s TCA party last night, where he told Deadline that “It was always intended to be one season.” He added, ”A lot of people are speculating but there’s been zero contemplation, zero discussions other than fans asking me about it.” Showtime programming president Gary Levine adds that taking on all 18 hours of the revived mystery was a “Herculean effort“ for director David Lynch, but should Lynch decide he wants to climb the mountain of premium television content once more, Showtime is very much open to the idea. “I don’t know if he wants to do it,” though, Levine adds. Gives a new urgency to Dougie-Coop waking up sometime in the next five episodes, doesn’t it?
