David Lynch "Thinking About" Returning To TV

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist April 11, 2013 at 2:18PM

A few months ago there were rumors that another season of "Twin Peaks" might be on the table, although they were quickly nixed. Having said that, they did get an awful lot of people excited while there still seemed to be some potential there. You could argue that excitement was purely about the cult show, but for many it would have been motivated by the potential return of David Lynch to the small screen (and at this point, we take his return anywhere).

A few months ago there were rumors that another season of "Twin Peaks" might be on the table, although they were quickly nixed. Having said that, they did get an awful lot of people excited while there still seemed to be some potential there. You could argue that excitement was purely about the cult show, but for many it would have been motivated by the potential return of David Lynch to the small screen (and at this point, we take his return anywhere).

And who knows, maybe those short-lived rumors got Lynch thinking too, because he's just made some intriguing comments related to the subject. Here's what he told France's Metro newspaper when asked whether he could come back to the small screen with a new series: "I'm thinking about it. I'm thinking about it. Television allows you to tell a story over time, something cinema doesn't. For me, the two formats will always exist. It's like painting in a square or a rectangle."

The interesting thing is, if that square is the television screen, that's a square that's currently expanding and offering new possibilities. Network dramas like "Hannibal" show that particular area of the medium is ready to adapt, while cable dramas offer remarkable creative opportunities for the likes of Lynch. Add to that the way that the likes of Netflix and Amazon are starting to change the landscape, why wouldn't Lynch now be at least considering it?

Of course, Lynch has always flitted between creative outlets depending on what opportunities present themselves at any given time. Music, directing, producing, acting, film, television... It's something one of Lynch's protégés, Eli Roth, has also taken on board, and he now has a very Lynchian-inspired show in the form of "Hemlock Grove" coming to Netflix.

It would be great if what Lynch is considering is a return to the town of "Twin Peaks," because lord knows we need as much Kyle MacLachlan as we can get in our lives, but any project Lynch takes an interest in would immediately become of interest to us. A new collaboration with Mark Frost would sound great too. Let's hope that Lynch keeps thinking down this path, or failing that a new movie wouldn't be terrible either! [via Welcome To Twin Peaks]
