Just six months after American cable network Showtime announced that they had David Lynch and Mark Frost on board for a revival of Twin Peaks, the latter has stated that he is leaving the production.

Lynch had previously agreed to direct all nine episodes of the new series of the seminal 90s show, but took to social media to announce that this would no longer be the case:

Showtime have since issued an official statement of their own and hope to coax the charismatic writer-director back into the show’s hotseat:

“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.”
