Also watch out for Kyle. If he dyes his hair black, it might be an indication that something is up

hmm- the plot thickens. People do make stuff up unfortunately. But I still am convinced something is happening.

How did you get hold of the Mark Frost book? In Australia, I'm seeing a release date of March 12th.

“Just some person in LA.”

Yeah, because rumors never get started in Tinseltown. :roll:

In actual legitimate journalism, you need two corroborating sources.

They just admitted they have no source. Some guy in a coffee shop was shooting off his mouth and they decided to try to get some hits. Assuming they didn’t just entirely make the whole thing up wholecloth. Either way, it amounts to the same thing. Zero credibility.

When asked to elaborate, they answered: "Basic info gleaned from someone in LA hearing from someone who worked on season 3 and with Lynch". :lol:

Of course anything can happen. I'll live in hope but a little more quietly from here on out.


I got the impression the book is not supposed to come out until March; I have it on my radar for some time, am very interested in reading it (I enjoy Frost's eloquent elaborations much more than Lynch's cryptic one-liners). You don't have to say anything concrete, but just on the general, would you say there is any sizeable information regarding the production of S 3 - I mean thein-depth, behind-the-scenes stuff (about why certain storytelling decisions were made, the casting process, the absence of certain people etc.) that wasn't in the special features of the two box-sets or already said elsewhere?

Hmm.. but wasn’t Mark thonking of a season 4 some time ago ? https://www.indiewire.com/2017/10/twin- ... 201891106/


Well that was two and a half years ago. The interviews in the book are more recent. Mark is very careful in his answers. He states he wants to keep hope alive for people then adds he never wants to close the door "entirely".

Listen, Mark is very capable of using language like that and who knows, maybe he's putting the finishing touches on the S4 script at the same time.

But in my opinion, the language that's used to describe the relationship between himself and David seems strained. There are a few moments of candidness that surprised me.

I received an advanced copy as I donated some rare materials to be used in the book. One thing I think people will really enjoy is a two page letter from Mark to his agent Ed Victor concerning writing a book about the history of Twin Peaks. The letter dates to circa Season One.

All of these are asked and answered to varying degrees of completeness.

There are times when he politely avoids spoiler answers, but he also throws out a few nuggets that surprised me.

If you are remotely interested in Twin Peaks, get the book.

There were several quotes from Frost around that time that seemed to strongly indicate that more was on the way. However, none of the rest of us will be able to read what Jerry's read for many more weeks. And those quotes are likely to be more recent.

Another thing is that even if the show was in some state of pre-production at Showtime, it seems that there are some big structural changes happening there, that could jeopardise things.

That’s too bad. I know that’s been speculated about, but other than the Twitter thing (and the strange lack of any post-TP:TR interview with Mark for Room to Dream), it had been pure unfounded gossip. Mark has been nothing but positive in his public comments about TP:TR. Personality-wise, I’ve always had a difficult time even imagining them interacting.

Sounds very interesting. can't wait to read it.

If I had to guess tho, I've been thinking for a while that Lynch wants Twin Peaks for himself. Frost seemed to be unwanted during season 3. Just a guess tho. Sadly I don't think Lynch likes to share credit or creative. I wonder if this is the hold up on future seasons.

Yeah they seem like pure opposites. It seemed to work so well back in the day.

Maybe we should be hoping that Kyle's sitcom gets canceled so he can change his hair freely. If it gets picked up for season 2, he might end up having to wear a wig if he were to play Cooper again.
