‘Twin Peaks’ Not Likely to Be Renewed for Season 2 on Showtime

Showtime Twin Peaks Season 2 Renewed Canceled

It’s hard to believe we’re already thirteen weeks into Showtime’s expansive Twin Peaks revival; partly because you’d be hard-pressed to follow any one linear story. We might not have much more closure after the Labor Day finale either, as Showtime doesn’t believe it’s likely to order another round of cherry pie.

Speaking with reporters after the Showtime TCA press tour panel, network boss David Nevins admitted official conversations with creator David Lynch would wait until after the finale in September, though they weren’t likely to lead anywhere. Twin Peaks hasn’t exactly bolstered Showtime’s live ratings, but Nevins feels the experiment served a purpose as far as subscriber data.

I don’t think so, but it’s not impossible. [David Lynch and I are] both avoiding the conversation for a while; we want to let the story coalesce and see how people feel at the end … I’m really happy with the performance. It drove our business in a way that almost nothing else could. It’s been interesting and maybe it’s a blinding glimpse of how Netflix looks at the world but [it had] a palpable effect on subscribers even though its overall numbers are not as big as our biggest shows. But it’s had a very palpable effect on subscribers for multiple months now.

Either way, it’s hard to imagine David Lynch either committing to, or having interest in a second season. The director famously helmed all eighteen installments of the new version as one long project, and briefly dropped out when Showtime wanted a smaller run.

We’ll have to wait until September to see if Twin Peaks concludes Cooper’s weird Odyssey with any closure, but should Showtime push for another round?
