Actor Kyle MacLachlan is planning on reprising his most iconic role, Special Agent Dale Cooper. Last seen in TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME, Cooper was to have made a comeback a few years back with the project, TWIN PEAKS: WITH A THOUSAND ANGELS. That never came to fruition, but MacLachman is still keen on revisiting everyone’s favorite pie-loving fed.
According to Wenn.com, MacLachlan says, "I have a crazy idea to bring back Twin Peaks on the net as five minute webisodes." As for any David Lynch involvement, MacLachlan is doubtful stating, "David's focus is more on transcendental meditation now."
TWIN PEAKS ended on a cliffhanger. For almost 17 years now, I’ve wondered what happened to Cooper after he was possessed by Killer Bob, so the idea of revisiting the character is appealing to me. What’s not so appealing, however, is the idea of five minute webisodes and a lack of involvement from Lynch. TWIN PEAKS is very much David Lynch’s baby, and to see it running without the master at the helm doesn’t seem like a good idea. Nor does the five minute webisode idea. TWIN PEAKS was all about the slow burn, and condensing that into five minute bursts doesn’t seem feasible.
All in all, I shouldn’t complain, a return to TWIN PEAKS would be welcome. Now if only someone could get a Blu-Ray of TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME (including all of the deleted footage, details HERE) out, I’d be a happy camper.
