When news broke that “Twin Peaks” will be getting a revival after two decades, the response by fans of the 1990s cult TV series was encouraging. Showtime said that it plans on launching the new version by 2016 and the return of its original star Kyle MacLachlan offered more promises that this will be a show to look forward to.

But then on Welcome to Twin Peaks, an old fansite devoted to the show and David Lynch’s work, an unnamed source apparently divulged that Lynch was asked about it in a recent Q & A event in Brisbane and said that he doesn’t know if the reboot is going to get made all.
“I don’t know. There are complications,” said Lynch.
While Welcome to Twin Peaks also confirmed that the scripts for the series are done, it looks like contract negotiations have been delaying production.
Additionally, Lynch apparently also said in a TV interview on “The Mix,” which broadcasts on ABCNews 24 in Australia, that contract negotiations are still being ironed out, although he was more upbeat with talking about the show to the host.
“I haven’t returned yet and we’re still working on the contract, but I love the world of Twin Peaks and I love those characters. And I think it will be very special to go back into that world.”

Twin Peaks, which was created by Lynch along with Mark Frost, ran on ABC from 1990-1991. It follows the story of the murder of Laura Palmer in a small town riddled with mysteries.
