Twin Peaks’ Laura Dern & Executive Producer Reveal If Season 4 Could Happen


Twin Peaks star Laura Dern seemed open to the possibility of Season 4 in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I’ll never say no to David, and I’ll never say no to Diane because now I’ve fallen in love with her,” Dern said. “So it would be impossible for me not to want to be part of any journey he wants to take, but I think that’s what’s so beautiful about his work is that every time it ends, even if there is an ending, you’re just devastated at the thought of saying goodbye…So whether he wants to dive back into this world [of Twin Peaks] or go somewhere completely different, it’ll be something like we’ve never seen. And if I’m lucky enough to be an actor on it he’ll take me somewhere I’ve never gone before and push me further than I have.”

Dern wasn’t quite sure what to make of the ‘Richard and Linda’ storyline in the finale. “I really don’t have an answer,” she said when pressed for what Richard and Linda means. “If I knew I’d be happy to explain it.”

Dern can make sense of another puzzling moment from the finale: The scene in which Diane sees another version of herself setting outside a motel. She believes Lynch was trying to show that Diane was somewhat aware of the new timeline she was in, a place where she could recognize this new Cooper, or Richard, was now a version with elements of both the Cooper she fell in love with and his villainous doppelgänger.

“I loved the idea, or it felt to me, that what had evolved in [Diane] was the awareness that there were other sides of [Cooper] and not knowing what would be on the other side of following him,” Dern said. “In letting herself love him, in following him on this journey, and that she didn’t know which side of him she’d get, I think is very true of any love story. I thought there was something meta and very beautiful that he would leave me alone in the car not knowing who I was going to get in this man, but yet then seeing a whole other side of myself looking back. To me, as a love story, there’s something really profound about ‘Well, we are many sides.’ I felt really moved by all of that.”

Twin Peaks executive producer Sabrina Sutherland stated in a Reddit AMA yesterday that fans could ‘show your interest to Showtime’ when she was asked if there will be a Season 4 or a movie.

“I’m still caught up in Season 3 to even think about Season 4 or a movie. I suppose you could show your interest to Showtime, but I’m not thinking of this yet. I want to finish this season first.”

When another fan asked about Season 4, she also did not directly answer if it would happen.

“We are still delivering final elements of this season, so it’s still too early for me to even think about it.”

She also discussed on set leaks, “Hi, yes, unfortunately someone was leaking things. It was a specific request of David’s to keep everything secret. He (like me and most) like to keep the show a mystery so everyone can experience the show without any preconceptions. Showtime really helped as did all the distributors. There are, though, some who like to feel powerful and get away with something. It’s too bad. Of course those early airings were just mistakes and not something puposeful – like those Admin quotes.”

She also revealed that David Bowie gave Twin Peaks permission to use his scenes from the Fire Walk With Me film in Season 3 prior to his January 2016 death.

“Bowie did give us permission to use his clips in this season.”
