David Lynch has left Twin Peaks

After weeks of rumours that the Twin Peaks revival on Showtime was dead before it really began, the unfortunate news broke on Sunday morning from David Lynch himself. The episodes in the proposed revived third season were written jointly by David Lynch and Mark Frost co-creators of the show, if the show was to still continue with Showtime it is likely all the scripts written will be used with Frost serving as director instead of Lynch.
A few places reported that the show had been completely cancelled, Lynch took to his Facebook and Twitter to clear up the confusion with this message;

"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."

Showtime have recently responded with a message of their own;

"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 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."
