But he says he would come back after they announce a new season if it happens before Feb 21.Like he knows that they are surely going to announce it but doesnt know when.And what is on Feb 21st? Its a Thursday and 2 nights before Lauras murder

Heh. Obviously I didn't know that Jerry has that account. This is now making more sense than Cooper's superimposed face though.

Don't tempt me. It would be silly, but I haven't gotten many quotes lately, so there's no telling what could happen. :lol:

Like most of you, I feel that the likelihood of a Season 4 will rest 99.9% on Lynch's and Frost's positions rather than on corporate/financial pressures. That being said, I could see Season 4 being a PERFECT fit for CBS's All Access Streaming Platform. I am sure the CBS executives are looking at the 'record number' of people that signed up for the Showtime app when 'The Return' premiered, and seeing how they might parlay it into their new streaming priority.

'The Return' might have only been bringing in a couple of hundred thousand viewers in its initial broadcasts each week, but I'm fairly confident most of those viewers would be the same people willing to plunk down $6 for the All Access subscription.

Why do you think they'd move it to CBS All Access from Showtime?

I love the new season, I was just being silly. I was simply saying "this made no sense, now it makes sense. Cooper's superimposed face will remain a glorious mystery".

This is all speculation but my guess is the incremental viewership Twin Peaks would bring would have more of an impact on the All Access subscriber base than on Showtime's. A lot of Twin Peaks viewers were already subscribers to Showtime when the Return premiered, I doubt the same could be said of All Access which is a much younger platform. Then again, a Showtime subscription (either through cable or the standalone app) is a bit more expensive than CBS All Access, so I guess it might even out.

Also, while I know all 'official' Showtime statements clearly show support and enthusiasm for the show, the Live ratings were pretty low, especially compared to many of their other originals. Removing Twin Peaks from a linear TV platform and letting it live on as an OTT exclusive would take some pressure off their scheduling, and allow them to put a more highly-rated show in the coveted 9Pm Sunday slot. And there would almost inevitably be a much-reduced marketing spend if the show was OTT only.

I think there is zero chance of it leaving Showtime.

If Jerry say he has listened good things, i believe he is referring to a annoucement of a new season, but why he say also Feb 21st??
