Can Twin Peaks Make a Comeback without David Lynch?

Can Twin Peaks Make a Comeback without David Lynch?

In the 1990s, Twin Peaks was TV show featuring an FBI agent investigating a mysterious murder in the town of Twin Peaks. It was a hit series for Showtime and is actually considered one of the most influential shows in television history.  Showtime has been in the works with creators David Lynch and Mark Frost to bring back the series.  A couple days ago, David Lynch announced via Twitter that he was leaving the project. And what’s the reason for leaving…money…isn’t it always?  Lynch wrote to his twitter followers, “After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.” While David Lynch has made it clear he will not be directing, Showtime could still move forward with the project. Is it possible for Showtime to bring back the series without Lynch? The show will be lacking fundamental passion and genuine connection behind the camera.  Showtime has made statements invoking hope that they “can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm.”  Many of the show’s original cast members are showing their support for David Lynch claiming that the show without him will be “like pies without cherries.”  Will Showtime cave in on the budget requests? Could all the support and trending on social media could re-open negotiations between Lynch and Showtime? Or is it too late?
