Production

Original season 3 plans

In the third season's original plans, BOB and MIKE were from a place or a planet made of creamed corn which moves backward.[7][8][9][10]

They fell out with each other when BOB stole a can of corn and escaped pursued by MIKE[7][9]. The chase began on December 31st, 1951[7] or on the night of Eisenhower inauguration with insects and garmonbozia appearing on the presidential table when the inauguration was stopped for half an hour (though it actually was because of the broadcast of the I Love Lucy episode where she has a baby).[11]

Every character has a doppelganger who lives in a reality 2 minutes[8] or nanoseconds behind the other reality.[7]

The original intention would have been played as if the good Coop was possessed by BOB and eventually reveal it to be his doppelganger instead.[12][13]

To rescue Dale from the place and the return the spirits to their place, Truman would open a portal by driving the sheriff jeep backward through a corn field,[8][11][9] going back in time.[7]

Major Briggs would be the only choice to save Cooper due to his White Lodge experience.[14]

The cliffhanger would be solved before the commercial break of the first episode, with then a time skip of some years[15] getting away from the high school setting. Cooper being the pharmacist[9] and having left the FBI, Truman being a recluse, Sheryl Lee returning as a new character with red hair and to possibly be killed by BOB as well.[16]

Laura's diary entry about her vision of Annie saying "the Good Dale is in the Lodge" would have been found.[13]

The novel The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes was conceived at a time when season 3 was in its early stages and some elements from it might have been reused. In particular, Emmet Cooper was a last-minute addition and Mark Frost had actor Roger Rees as his first choice to perform him.[17]

Cancelled graphic novel

MattHaleyTwinPeaks

Artwork by Matt Haley for the graphic novel's pitch

In 2007, artist Matt Haley was tasked with the project of a Twin Peaks graphic novel that would serve as a continuation of the television series. Writer Robert Engels was also heavily involved and planned to use story ideas originally planned for the canceled third season.

Cooper, who may or may not be possessed, starts serial killings including a red-haired portrayed by Sheryl Lee. Truman, still broken by Josie, would drive backward through a corn field with the One-Armed Man to go to the Lodge and rescue Cooper.[18]

Engels wished to steer the show away from the high school setting and years later, following the resolution of Cooper's possession by BOB, Cooper was to have quit the FBI and have become Twin Peaks' local pharmacist, Truman became a recluse and stopped being sheriff, being replaced by Andy, the comatose Annie never returned, Ben gave away his money and stayed with the wheel-chaired Audrey in a convalescent home following the bank explosion, Josie is haunting the Great Northern, James is still missing.[18]

The graphic novel was to be released in Twin Peaks: Definitive Gold Box Edition, but plans fell through when David Lynch vetoed the idea, wishing to not continue the story of Twin Peaks in any way.[18]

Showtime

The series was first announced on October 6, 2014, as a limited series of nine episodes that would premiere on the Showtime cable network in 2016. All scripts were written by original series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost. The series was described as revisiting the town of Twin Peaks and its inhabitants twenty-five years after the events of the original series.[19] Parts of the original blueprints of the 1990's season three were reused for the revival series.[20]

On January 12, 2015, it was confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan would reprise the role of Dale Cooper.[21] Four days later, Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook also announced their casting in the 2016 series. They also implied the return of Sherilyn Fenn.[22] On September 18, 2015, it was revealed that Amanda Seyfried would have a recurring role on the new series as a "pivotal new character."[23] Two days later, it was reported that Balthazar Getty was part of the cast.[24]

On March 14, 2015, Lynch stated that there were contract negotiation "complications" impeding the progress of the production.[25]

On April 5, 2015, Lynch announced that he was pulling out of the series because Showtime was not offering enough money to properly fund the production of his scripts. Showtime stated that they still intended to proceed with the production.[26]

On May 15, 2015, Lynch announced that he was returning to the project and Showtime confirmed as much. Showtime also stated that Lynch would direct every episode and that there would be more than the initially announced nine episodes.[27]

Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn spoke at a panel at Seattle's Crypticon convention on May 23, 2015. They revealed that Lynch would direct eighteen Twin Peaks episodes for Showtime, that Angelo Badalamenti would return as the composer and that the new series would shoot on location in Washington State. Filming began in September 2015 and wrapped in April 2016.[28][29] The series takes the form of a movie divided into 18 "parts," which should not be called "episodes."[30][31] Lynch stated, perhaps jokingly, that the parts could be viewed out of order.[31]

Promotional material

On March 21, 2017, Showtime launched eight[32] billboards in the following cities (two per town): Seattle, Missoula, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
