Primero los antecedentes:
Las primeras noticias de ayer aseguraban que Twin Peaks estaba muerta y los actores ya habían sido notificados. Poco después, Lynch tuiteaba:
"Dear Twitter 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."
"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?"
"Dear Showtime...I hope you're happy. P.S. you really really suck."
"I'm sad but I support DL in his decision. I know that he only wants what's best for this very special show."
La fiebre de los revivals empieza a afectar negativamente a la televisión americana.
