Twin Peaks season 4

Earlier this summer, in the midst of the madness of Twin Peaks: The Return, Showtime president David Nevins told us that he wouldn’t be having any conversations about a potential fourth season until after The Return wrapped its 18-episode limited series run.

But the show came to a mystifying and haunting end in early September, so now that possibility is being raised. In a new interview, co-creator Mark Frost gave the latest update about his thoughts on whether or not we’ll see a Twin Peaks season 4.

Twin Peaks Season 3 Blu-ray

It seems like only yesterday that David Lynch and Mark Frost broke everyone’s brain with their weird, wild Twin Peaks revival. Some loved it while others thought that perhaps Lynch was pulling a prank on the audience. Either way, it was one of the most original pieces of TV in quite some time. And now Twin Peaks season 3 is about to make its way to Blu-ray, and it’s bringing a whole lot of damn fine special features with it. Get the Twin Peaks season 3 Blu-ray news below.

The President is Missing

2013 was a big year for fictional movie thrillers involving the President of the United States, with Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down both blasting into theaters within three months of each other. Those were simpler times when movies about the president didn’t pale in comparison to the hellish nightmare of the behavior of the actual leader of our country.

But Showtime is trying to bring us back to those days with a new TV adaptation of a forthcoming novel called The President is Missing. No, it has nothing to do with our current president – but it actually does directly involve one of the former leaders of the free world. President Bill Clinton wrote the novel with prolific author James Patterson (the Alex Cross series and dozens more), marking the first time an American President has ever co-written a thriller.

Twin Peaks finale review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

The second season of Twin Peaks ended on a cliffhanger so severe it was borderline cruel, instantly establishing itself as one of the most unforgettable moments of television in the medium’s history. More than two decades later, creators David Lynch and Mark Frost were given the resources to continue their story with total creative freedom. So how did they choose to end this season – and possibly the series as a whole? Read our Twin Peaks finale review to find out.

Twin Peaks part 16 review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

The world’s attention may have been focused on Game of Thrones‘ season 7 finale last night, but an hour beforehand, David Lynch and Mark Frost headed into the home stretch of Twin Peaks by delivering one of the most satisfying moments of the season so far.

Warning: major spoilers ahead, so if you haven’t caught up yet, turn back now.

Twin Peaks part 15 review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

As Twin Peaks approaches the conclusion of its new season, I wondered if co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost might begin to narrow their focus and concentrate on the task of converging plot lines for the remaining hours the show has left. While last night’s fifteenth hour of The Return wasn’t quite as satisfying (to me) as the previous episode, it did manage to bring multiple storylines together in a way that at least seems appropriate for a show whose ending is in sight.

Twin Peaks part 14 review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

After despising the past couple of episodes of Twin Peaks, the elusive series connected with me in a big way with last night’s installment, trading narrative tangents and autuer-driven indulgences for a mythology-centric hour that made me breath a sigh of relief. Twin Peaks contains multitudes and part of its legend stems from the way it can represent many things to many people, but I’m partial to episodes like the one that aired last night, and I found it to be particularly satisfying – especially in the wake of what came before it.

Purity TV Series

On last summer’s Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime President and CEO David Nevins said he expected to film the series Purity in 2017. That would have been in the can before star Daniel Craig would be needed for another James Bond film, should he even decide to make one. Now that Bond 25 is scheduled for release in 2019, with filming next year and Craig expected (though not officially confirmed) to return, Showtime is waiting for him.
