Breaking news out of WonderCon: Showtime has apparently pulled the plug on the new Twin Peaks TV series. No word yet as to why.— The Digital Bits (@thedigitalbits) April 5, 2015
No official word is out, but reports have been leaking out from Wondercon and making its way onto the Internet that Showtime has decided to not go ahead with reviving the cult show. According to Business Insider, the rumors had been brewing, like some damn good coffee, for weeks. Just last month, David Lynch himself told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, "We are still working on a contract."

And to think, a few out there didn't believe our inside source who said "...and he said there's much difficulty with twin peaks and DL..."— Twin Peaks Archive (@TwinPeaksArchve) April 5, 2015
But hey, there's always hope! Looks like everyone saddened over the news is turning to Netflix in hopes of bringing back the show.
Update [3:45]: David Lynch has said he is no longer working on the project, which might still be alive.
