Twin Peaks revival wraps, might be getting at least 2 seasons

Director David Lynch took a rather unconventional approach to the filming of Showtime's upcoming revival of Twin Peaks, the cult favorite 1990 - 1991 television show Lynch co-created with Mark Frost. Rather than film it episode by episode, Lynch took the script he and Frost had written for the new show and shot it as one extremely long movie. After a marathon 140 day shoot in Washington state and Los Angeles, production has wrapped on this return to Twin Peaks, and the footage in the can may provide us with even more show than we were anticipating.

According to the insider Twitter account @ForLocations, what Lynch has shot isn't just one season's worth of Twin Peaks. What just finished filming is the "first 2 seasons" of Showtime's Twin Peaks.

Exactly how many episodes these seasons will be made up of is unknown, as that's information that will be coming out of the editing process. When news of this project first hit, it was being said that it would consist of nine episodes. Actress Sherilyn Fenn later said that the episode count had expanded to eighteen, so maybe we are looking at two nine episode seasons.

With a cast that's said to include Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Dana Ashbrook, Madchen Amick, Miguel Ferrer, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer, Mark Frost, Frost's father Warren Frost, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, Peggy Lipton, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, James Marshall, Al Strobel, Kimmy Robertson, Harry Goaz, Charlotte Stewart, Gary Hershberger, Jan D'Arcy, Harry Dean Stanton, Catherine E. Coulson, Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Balthazar Getty, Robert Knepper, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bailey Chase, Laura Dern, Robert Forster, Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore, Grant Goodeve, Larry Clarke, Caleb Landry Jones, James Belushi, Ashley Judd, Jessica Szohr, and Lynch himself, Twin Peaks is expected to premiere on Showtime in early 2017.
