i’m soo tired 

So today I had a lecture, then a meeting, then I went to the library, then I went shopping and then I made this awesome dinner with my friend (home made falafel with carrot salad, cucumber and yoghurt, tomato salad, sweet potato fries, olives and feta, green salad). Then I tidied up the dishes and then I went to a gathering and all this with like, no breaks…!

Art school is fun, and I’m thinking maybe soup chef or baker for when i have to earn money

David and I stayed in touch and remained closed friends throughout all these years. It was about three years ago this summer we were having lunch at [famed Hollywood eatery] Musso & Frank, where we often used to go. And we were just kicking stuff around and we started getting some ideas in our heads about Twin Peaks. Suddenly, it felt like a place we wanted to visit again. And that was the kickoff.

•••

We didn’t go to anybody else. Showtime was the first and only [network] we spoke to about this. There was a nice sense of continuity there, because Gary Levine, who’s the right-hand man to [Showtime president] David Nevins, was our [creative] representative on the show when we were on ABC. We’ve known Gary a long time. We trust Gary. We like Gary. We had a really great meeting with them. And David [Lynch] really loved the artwork on David [Nevins]‘ office walls. And they loved the show. And that’s how it all came to be.

•••

It is not a remake. The story continues. The seeds of where we go were planted where we’ve been.

•••

I’ve always said that Twin Peaks to me was like a novel we filmed every page of. So this is more like we found another volume of the saga [than a third season of the show], and now we want to bring that to life too.

•••

I think [Fire Walk With Me] should be. It’s definitely part of the mythology of the show, and it reflects the work that was done before and it will have some bearing on the work as we go forward.

•••

Those who want to see old faces, and those would like to see new faces, none of them will be disappointed. It’s far too early to talk specifics about people. We’re not at that stage in the process.

•••

We decided at that first lunch that if we were going to do this it had to be the two of us. It started with us and we felt it was only right if it continued with the two of us. So we pledged right then and there that we were going to write it ourselves, and David said he wanted to direct all of them. And we’ll produce them together. That’s the basis on which we decided to go forward.

•••

It’s fair to say that there aren’t many shows that have a fan base as passionate and dedicated and committed as our show does. And we’re very grateful to those people for keeping the flames alive all these years, and helping whole new generations of people discover it. So, in a way, this will be of special significance to those folks. And at the same time we hope a whole bunch of people want to come to the party as well.

•••

I think for me, and for everybody who took part in this originally, it was — it’s a terrible pun — a peak experience. And the chance to revisit it later in life, and see what we can do now that we didn’t know then, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

•••

It’s our hope that these episodes will give the fans everything they felt they hadn’t gotten the last time we left off.

With a third season of Twin Peaks has been confirmed to air on Showtime in 2016, co-showrunner Mark Frost took part in a Q&A with TV Line which gives some very interesting insights into the process behind bringing the show back and what we can expect from the nine episodes. (via hitsvilleuk)
