TWIN PEAKS IS BACK: 25 YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE LAST EPISODE, NOW THE LYNCH’S SERIES IS READY TO BRING US BACK AMONG THE SPIRITS IN THE WOODS.
Once upon a time there was a quite American village, an industrial town lost in the shade of two twin mountains. What else could have happened in such a peaceful place but an efferate murder of an attractive and well-liked girl? The cult series Twin Peaks, in the two seasons that made it go down in history, orbits around a single question: Who murdered Laura Palmer? The art of David Lynch and Mark Frost, with the help of a – most of the time – high level cast, was capable to transform a classic thriller into something unique.
Twentyfive years ago the second season came to an end. Whether it’s possible to associate the word ‘end’ to everythin Lynch has ever produced. The ending was kept indefinite, construable and intentionally incomplete. The physical murder of Laura Palmer had been already unveiled, under the network pressure – a decision that Lynch defined as an “absurdity”. The last two episodes were shot not to give a conclusion, but to open new questions, hoping to continue the conversation in the next season.
Of course, neither Lynch nor Frost could know they would have waited for two decades and a half for that season. As it usually happens, the future only gives the right value to a project. As a nice love story that is already over and left some pleasing memories, Twin Peaks has been left in a corner, ready to be brought back to life at the right time. That time will be on May 21st in Usa, on May 26th in Italy.
We know so few about Twin Peaks 3. The Hermeticism of David Lynch has hidden every particular regarding the plot. Except that it will recall the themes left unsolved in the series and in the movie Fire Walk With Me. The story takes place in these days, no hint of a dive in the past, but an hystorical continuation, just like nothing has stopped. Hystorical actors will return, among them Kyle MacLachlan (detective Dale Cooper), Sherylin Fenn (Audrey Horne) and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), refreshed with the help of new faces. Jim Belushi, Monica Bellucci, Tim Roth, Naomi Watts and Robert Foster will be the news in the cast, with the hard task to satisfy a quarter of a century of expectations.
