Cryptic tweets from Mark Frost and David Lynch could point to a brand new era for the surreal series.
It may not be time to jump the gun and start holding celebratory Twin Peaks parties just yet, but something important could very well be brewing, and it's not just a cup of coffee from the Double R Diner. Both David Lynch and Mark Frost took to Twitter today to post the same puzzling tweet: "Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee." The quote in question is a reference to a scene from an episode of Twin Peaks where FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) experiences some telling hallucinations in a creepy area known as the Black Lodge. This could mean several things, but what it sounds as though they're trying to communicate is that a new Twin Peaks project is underway.
Looking back on one of television's quirkiest dramas has been one of the only ways to continue enjoying it since its untimely cancellation. But the time for looking back into the past for a healthy dose of the unique brand of surrealism Twin Peaks provides could be over, if those tweets from today are to be believed.
They couldn't have come at a better time, either. Rabid Twin Peaks or David Lynch fans have likely hungrily devoured books like The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer or The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes. They've already purchased recent re-release Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery on Blu-ray and have probably rewatched it hundreds of times by now. It's high time for some new content.
Unfortunately, neither Lynch nor Frost have followed up with any additional details as to what they could be teasing, but the throwback quote to the popular foreshadowing as heard in the Black Lodge is indeed a curiosity. As more details surface, fans can continue speculating as to what it is they could be talking about. Hopefully (and you couldn't put this past Lynch) they're not actually referring to Bazooka gum going back into production.
