Even though the most recent ending to Twin Peaks seemed pretty definitively non-definitive, David Lynch hasn’t necessarily ruled out another return to his world of alternate selves, delicious baked goods, and mysterious, David Bowie-containing objects. Making his first public appearance since Twin Peaks: The Return wrapped up two weeks ago, Lynch participated in a Skype call promoting his new Small Stories photo exhibition in Belgrade last night, during which he fielded questions about the show, suggesting that it’s too soon to say whether Twin Peaks might come back…eventually.
“It took me four and a half years to write and film this season,” Lynch noted ruefully when asked about another season, while making it clear that it was far too early to tell whether the show would ever actually return for another run. (Not that it really needs to.) True to form, Lynch also deflected questions about his own authorial intent, specifically turning aside a question about the fate of Audrey Horne, who the new series left in an even more mysterious existential limbo than usual. “Many things in life just happen and we have to come to our own conclusions,” Lynch noted. “You can, for example, read a book that raises a series of questions, and you want to talk to the author, but he died a hundred years ago. That’s why everything is up to you.”
