'Twin Peaks' revival rumor untrue, says co-creator Mark Frost

Following the news that the Twilight Zone would be making its return to television, the rumor mills started a'churning. One of the more prevalent resultant rumors was that Twin Peaks, the weird CBS mystery series created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, was being revived by the network. Nobody's sure where the rumor came from (probably a giant in a dream), but it was confirmed on Friday that there's no truth to it.

That confirmation came from none other than Mark Frost himself, who took to Twitter to quash the rumors. "Dear Internet: You are very good at spreading rumors. Truth is more valuable and much harder to come by. Sincerely yours, @mfrost11," he wrote.

Well, it looks like that solves it, I guess -- unless you want to read into the tweet that there is a "more valuable" truth about a Twin Peaks revival.

I personally would have liked to see Twin Peaks return -- I've recently started watching the series, and though I'm aware of the apparently disappointing ending, the show is such surrealist fun that's rarely seen on television anymore. In fact, I've only seen such surrealism on the FX series Louie -- which featured a guest arc from Twin Peaks co-creator David Lynch.
