Showtime to air all 18 episodes of Twin Peaks uninterrupted

on May 24, 2018, 11:15pm

Twin Peaks: The Return, which aired last summer, aired as a TV series out of necessity, not of choice. For writer and director David Lynch, the series’ third season is more or less an 18-hour movie, and, like most Lynch films, best enjoyed in one sitting. Of course, 18 hours is a helluva long time to sit down, so you’re forgiven if you haven’t revisited the series in such a manner just yet.

Well, here’s the good news: Showtime will be airing all 18 episodes of the season, uninterrupted and in sequential order, beginning on Saturday, June 2nd at 4:35 a.m. EST/PST. So, if the DVD set has eluded you thus far, this could be your prime opportunity to view the story as it was intended.
