'Twin Peaks' Director David Lynch Makes Surprise Appearance at Showtime TCA Panel

Twin Peaks director David Lynch surprised some lucky fans today!

The famed director stepped out during Showtime’s panel during the 2017 Winter TCA Tour on Monday (January 9) at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.

During the panel, David revealed some new details about the upcoming Twin Peaks revival.

“The story of Laura Palmer’s last seven days is very, very important for this,” he revealed, also opening up about the ending of the first series.

“What killed Twin Peaks originally — who killed Laura Palmer? — was a question that we did not ever really want to answer. That Laura Palmer mystery was the goose that laid these little golden eggs. And then at a certain point, we were told we needed to wrap that up and after that, [the show] never really picked up,” he explained.

Also in attendance was Jim Carrey and the cast of I’m Dying Up Here as well as Freida Pinto and the Guerrilla cast and Malin Akerman and the cast of Billions.

David Lynch Exits 'Twin Peaks' Reboot, Showtime Releases Additional Statement

Twin Peaks creator David Lynch has announced he has dropped out of Showtime’s revival of the cult favorite television show.

“Dear Facebook Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks. After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done. This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime. I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently,” David posted to his Facebook earlier today.

“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 said in the statement (via Variety). “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.”
