Twin Peaks's Mark Frost Won't Rule Out Further Continuations If Showtime Series Is a Success

In two separate interviews today, Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost indicated that, depending on how the nine-episode run on Showtime goes, there could be yet more Twin Peaks in the future.

During conversations with both Deadline and TVLine, the veteran writer/producer stopped short of saying that he'd like to see more, deferring to the "anything is possible" line that has been his calling card for years. Certainly, though, it seems as though at least as it stands now, the limited series/Twin Peaks Season Three isn't being envisioned as the final word on the town and its inhabitants.

"That’s sort of what we thought the last time, and look what happened," Frost told Deadline when they asked whether the series was the definitive end of Twin Peaks. "I wouldn’t think it will take us 25 years to decide the next time around — I hope it wouldn’t because it would be a lot harder to do the work then — but I think anything’s possible to be honest, given that this is happening."

Speaking with TVLine, he was briefer: "We’ve learned never to say never. Anything is a possibility."

So far, it seems that neither he nor David Lynch can or will confirm much of anything; recent tweets indicate that Kyle Maclachlan is likely to join the series once his commitment to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is up, but that's not official. Neither is the involvement of Angelo Badalamenti, whose score captured the feel of Twin Peaks so perfectly the first time around.

Twin Peaks returns to TV in 2016 on Showtime.
