David Lynch Confirmed to Direct 'Twin Peaks' Season 3 at Showtime

Twin Peaks Dale Cooper Kyle MacLachlan Season 3

It's been a long road for fans of Twin Peaks. Nearly twenty-five years after the series was abruptly cancelled at ABC, leaving viewers with one of the most frustrating (and confusing) cliff-hangers in TV history, Showtime agreed to produce a third season under the direction of creator David Lynch. However, months once the revival was announced, and fans began gearing up for a return to the town where everyone knows everyone and nothing is what it seems, the deal began to fall apart - and Lynch exited the show.

Showtime remained confident that they would move ahead without the series'  creator but, in spite of the network's optimism, there has been zero news on the project since Lynch confirmed he was out - until today. In a surprise announcement, the filmmaker has confirmed that he's reached a deal with Showtime and will direct every single episode of the 9-part limited series.

Lynch took to Twitter to give the update, the same place where he previously dropped news of his exit, and Showtime was quick to follow-up with their own tweets.

Check out Lynch's message below - followed by a series of in-jokes and self-congratulations from Showtime:
