Wisteria leaks: Netflix. 25 episodes. $85 mil budget. Starts shooting in May
According to a production listing from ProductionWeekly, David Lynch will be working on a Netflix Original series.
The untitled David Lynch project goes under code name of Wisteria. Production is due to begin in May 2021. It will be filming in The Calvert Studios in Van Nuys, California, where many scenes from Twin Peaks Season 3 were shot.
Lynch will write and direct the series. The producer is Sabrina S. Sutherland, who also produced Twin Peaks Season 3.
A Reddit post from 9 months ago, that was largely ignored, might be 100% accurate. In a reaction user Canthaveit wrote: “Netflix. 25 hour-long episodes. $85 mil budget. Starts shooting in May. Code/working title is Wisteria.” This Reddit member’s identity is unknown but he must be an insider as he got the code name right.
On November 28th 2020, he shared a new post: “It looks like they continued with pre-production during lockdown but it’s been inactive since the summer. They’ll probably be pretty ready to start shooting as soon as David is vaccinated.”
Why Wisteria could very well be Twin Peaks Season 4?
Over the past year David Lynch himself and others have certainly done a good job fuelling rumours that a continuation of Twin Peaks was in the works.

Dear Twitter Friends, I love the people in King County. I love the locations in King County. We had a perfect place to shoot Twin Peaks and perfect people to work with. Both Dow Constantine and Kate Becker are great! All-in-all it made shooting Twin Peaks there a dream.

That’s a lot of clues pointing to something Twin Peaks related in the making, no?
Why Wisteria could be closer to a Twin Peaks spin-off?
One of the main conclusions of Twin Peaks Season 3 is that you simply cannot return to the old Twin Peaks. Actors have grown older, tv is different now, the world has changed and so has Twin Peaks.
Season 3 ended with Agent Cooper waking up at a motel. His name is now Richard and Laura Palmer is a woman called Carrie Page, who works at a restaurant that Richard frequently visits. Is Richard the dreamer? And what has he been dreaming?
If Twin Peaks Season 4 (Code name: Wisteria) is about Richard, Linda and Carrie, the series will look more like a Twin Peaks spin-off than anything else. We can only speculate, time will tell.
