In the revival of Twin Peaks, David Lynch and Mark Frost critique our nostalgia. Season 3 looks inward at what revival is, and why we’re so eager to return to past shows we loved
On May 17th 2017 Twin Peaks returned to TV, after a twenty five year layoff and it felt like maybe a week went by that we hadn’t seen it. I never thought we would ever see Twin Peaks back after the movie Twin Peaks : Fire Walk With Me , but David Lynch and Mark Frost brought it back but also opened up the world of Twin Peaks to a new generation.
Lynch and Frost could have just returned to the town of Twin Peaks, but instead they created a new world with awesome characters as The Mitchum Brothers , Dougie Jones and so much more. These characters had the traits of Twin Peaks as they were weird and wild and fit into the Lynch universe perfectly.
It was just great to see all the old characters again such as Hawk, Lucy , Deputy Andy and the new Sheriff Truman . It was sad to see the end come for The Log Lady, as she passed after her final call to her friend Hawk….Goodnight Margaret……
It was great to finally see the elusive Diane played by the awesome Laura Dern in a hysterical role. And seeing FBI agents Cole and Albert back for their final mission was both awesome and sad , as the great Miguel Ferrer passed after filming of the show.
I know this wasn’t the last time we will get a visit to the town of Twin Peaks, but who knows what Lynch and Frost have in mind for us and the people who populate that town. Welcome back Twin Peaks, and I hope it doesn’t take another twenty five years to see you again……….

The Twin Peaks superfans are still scratching their heads, and wondering what did WE just see at the end of Showtime TV’s Twin Peaks : The Return. Here are some theories of what went on during the two part finale. What makes Twin Peaks, such a fun and interesting show is that WE the viewers have to be detectives to figure it all out……I hope we see more from Lynch and Frost
