Can you believe it's been 30 years since Twin Peaks first aired?! (30 years, 5 months, 16 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Twin Peaks end?
When Twin Peaks came to an end after 2 years in June 1991, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Twin Peaks reunion disappoint people?
Twin Peaks aired from 1990-1991 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But MacLachlan said he's not sure if Twin Peaks would work today. “I don't want to see old Agent Dale Cooper,” he told a journalist (MacLachlan turned 61 in February). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Twin Peaks movie?
In a recent interview, Sherilyn Fenn (who played Audrey Horne) said she can't imagine a Twin Peaks reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Mädchen Amick (who played Shelly Johnson) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Twin Peaks movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Twin Peaks film, Kyle MacLachlan stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Twin Peaks reboot?
Recasting Twin Peaks for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Twin Peaks reunion, a Twin Peaks movie, or a Twin Peaks reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
