Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost told the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum that the series won’t return until sometime in 2017. Frost is writing the scripts for Twin Peaks Season 3.

“The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time.” says Frost. “We’re coming back with season three of ‘Twin Peaks’ after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out sometime in 2017.”

Twin Peaks: Written by Mark Frost, David Lynch & Others

Mark Frost and David Lynch jointly developed the stories for the Twin Peaks pilot and the first season. Frost was executive story editor of the second season. One can hardly over-estimate the importance of Mark Frost’s screen writing to the Twin Peaks TV series’ success. Reading Frost’s novels reveals that much of the supernatural and mystical aspects of Twin Peaks attributed to Lynch might have come from Frost. Besides Lynch and Frost, writers Harley Peyton and Robert Engels have worked on some of the scripts of Twin Peaks Season 1 and Season 2.
