Several weeks ago we learned that Showtime's revival of the cult television series "Twin Peaks" was having issues when creator David Lynch revealed that there were 'complications', leaving many fans worried about the fate of the new continuation of one of the greatest television shows in history. Now Lynch has revealed that he has quit the revival via his Twitter, sharing that the issue stems from an inability between Showtime and himself to reach a budget “to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.” Check out his tweets below:

Showtime quickly responded, indicating that they're still hopeful for a resolution to the issue by releasing the following statement:

“We were saddened to read David Lynch’s statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. Showtime also loves the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.”

Let's hope that this issue is resolved quickly. This return to the world of "Twin Peaks" needs to happen!

Lynch and Frost had already written the nine episodes expected to air next year. Original "Twin Peaks" star Kyle MacLachlan said in January he would return as Special Agent Dale Cooper. Sheryl Lee, who played Laura Palmer, and Dana Ashbrook, who played Laura's boyfriend Bobby, have both said they would be returning to the series as well.

"Twin Peaks" originally aired on ABC from 1990-1991, followed by the 1992 film TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME.
