The now-legendary scene of “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” set “above the convenience store”, just like the famous scene of the dream of Dale Cooper in the Red Room in “Twin Peaks”, is one of those Lynchian cryptic scenes full of clues to fans, and a veritable pool of ideas to be used in the future for the film-maker(s).

With the blu-ray of “Twin Peaks” release in 2014, we are now able to feel our way through the layers of mystery unfolding between the original script and the extended version of the ‘convenience store’ scene in the ‘Missing Pieces.’ Let us dive into old and new theories alike to try and prise open the secrets of the Black Lodge, the creamed corn, the Formica table, scorched engine oil and much more!

According to Twin Peaks Festival Facebook page, during Crypticon Seattle, Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn stated there will be 18 new episodes of Twin Peaks, Filming will begin in September on location in North Bend. Twede’s aka the Double R diner is being renovated.

Last saturday, Showtime’s CEO, David Nevins, said:

“This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever. Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Pre production starts now!!”

I’m speechless. Waiting for confirmation, let’s have a (whole) cherry pie!

UPDATE

And… Angelo Badalamenti is composing brand new music for the series. 18 new episodes all scored by Angelo Badalamenti and all directed by David Lynch!

“Yes. Those were the major reveals,” someone close to the organization of the convention confirmed in a message to Welcome to Twin Peaks.
