Will Twin Peaks TV show be cancelled or renewed for season four on Showtime? Deadline reports Showtime president and CEO David Nevins said, “It was always intended to be one season. A lot of people are speculating but there’s been zero contemplation, zero discussions other than fans asking me about it.” According to the report, Nevins made the remarks during Showtimes TCA summer press tour party.
A Showtime supernatural drama, Twin Peaks is a continuation of the original 1990s ABC TV series. Also known as Twin Peaks: The Return, the horror mystery centers on FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). The cast also includes Mädchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, Everett McGill, Kimmy Robertson, Russ Tamblyn, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, Amy Shiels, Robert Forster, Phoebe Augustine, Chrysta Bell, Richard Beymer, Catherine E. Coulson, Jan D’Arcy, Laura Dern, David Duchovny, Sherilyn Fenn, Miguel Ferrer, Eddie Vedder, Naomi Watts, and Alicia Witt.

That said, “the door’s always open to David Lynch, whether that would lead to another season, I don’t know if he wants to do it,” said Showtime programming president Gary Levine, who was ABC’s executive on the original Twin Peaks series and played a key role in bringing the revival to Showtime. “This was a Herculean effort. I’m not sure if any director has ever done 18 hours in a row of a series… It’s remarkable what he achieved, fans are liking it and for me that’s what’s satisfying.”
The 18-episode Twin Peaks sequel, which had a rocky three-year road to the small screen, was written by the original series’ creators Lynch and Mark Frost and entirely directed by Lynch, with Kyle MacLachlan reprising his role. It has been a modest linear ratings performer but has driven record Showtime streaming sign-ups.
