The Straight Story was amazing. One of my favorites as well. So different than Lynch's other movies but still so good. I love the scenes when Alvin and Rose are looking up at the stars. And of course when Harry Dean Stanton sees the tractor. When he says "You ride that thing all the way out here to see me?" Might be the best acting I've seen.

At the time, I saw The Straight Story as very closely related to Twin Peaks. The quirky exploration of humanity aspect of Twin Peaks is very much in evidence in TSS. To me, The Straight Story and Eraserhead almost represent the outer poles of his work, and most of his stuff sits somewhere in the middle (except possibly Dune for obvious reasons).

I'm sure you are right about Disney nowadays. Every media company has become very paranoid about content that might offend, and DIsney have even more reason to be due to their long association with content for kids.

I was interested in the recent Brit Box streaming service until I realised that they have censored some shows, removed episodes of others, and also they have far less obscure content that I would want. The last of these is my major gripe, but I also insist on being to watch shows as they were made which means I'll have to get them on DVD.

How long before any of you lose hope for a fourth season? This April? 2021? 2025? For me, if nothing is announced by the 30th anniversary on 4/8, I would have a hard time believing it will come back.

I didn't realize Britbox had censored things. That's unacceptable.

I have no particular timeframe on a possible return. I never expected S3 to begin with. I'm not waiting with bated breath; if it happens, it happens. I might start being less suspicious about various statements or news in, oh, five years.

I believe that it's merely a matter of time. The delightful shock of Twin Peaks returning after decades off the air has made me a total optimist in this regard.
Not taking any calls.

I feel exactly the same way. Watched it with my parents recently and that exact thought once again entered my mind.

As long as Lynch is above ground and physically able to work, I have hope, since S3 seemed like such a longshot for so long. I still put the odds at about 60-40 that we’ll get more eventually.

I'm still in the camp where I've not lost hope there will be more but I don't think we'll get another season, I'm guessing a movie. Or maybe a four episode season or something since Lynch always overshoots and doesn't seem to care to edit down anymore.

Straight Story> And then that soundtrack! Lauren's walking is pure Badalamenti magic.

I'll lose hope when either Lynch or Frost declare there won't be anything new. Other than that I'll always have a shimmer of hope.

But what precedent is there for an announcement on any anniversary? We had season 3 announced back in 2014 right?

However, I do agree that the 30th anniversary would be a great means of announcing something new based around the interest in Twin Peaks, looking back to the pilot episode in 1990 and so forth - you can't deny the power of nostalgia. I know many people claimed The Return was anti-nostalgia but I didn't sense that, it was just more interested in living inside its own dream.

Never lose hope. And now before its too late, seems the time to do it. But sadly I don't think anything is in the works already...…HHM isn't enough... I think it should happen. Like why not? Season 3 proved dreams do come true. Why not again? I think season 4 would make money and I think it would be both wonderful and strange.

I'll lose hope if another Lynch project is announced that isn't TP. That's my deadline of sorts.

I have been thinking recently about TP and a potential S4, so here is a new post from me after a while, bearing the standard disclaimer that I think that about 20% of S3 is brilliant, and more importantly, that I am still a huge fan of TP overall.

Speaking as an engineer, it is a combination of factors that will decide whether there is an S4 or not, main of which are the desire of L&F to revisit the world, and their (especially DKL's) willingness to work within a certain framework that may not match the one available for S3. Basically, do they feel like they have a compelling story to tell, and could they constrain themselves to conditions that were not as liberal as those for S3, in particular sticking to a script? Knowing that something similar almost torpedoed S3, where the script was ready and energy and enthusiasm present.

Story-wise, they could tie up some loose ends, such as the missing agent Desmond. The way S3 ended left a clear open possibility of Richard and Carrie continuing their pursuit of a way out or back, but that then would be an expectation, and we've seen what S3 did to expectations. And here is why I am at this point more inclined to think that S4 is more unlikely that not: with Dougie Jones' return Cooper's story ends, it is a closure. Cooper lives on as "corrected" Dougie Jones, having a proper family of his own. What about Richard's fate? Would a new season be warranted to rectify it? At this moment I think not, and, and here is where most people may very well likely disagree with me, I do not think there is a way out of it. What would the successful outcome be here? Could it top the one from FWWM with Laura and her guardian angel? I don't think so. We've never seem the White Lodge really, have we? Can Lynch even visualise it? To me it seems the best we can hope for here is another stalemate with Laura whispering to Cooper in the waiting room.

Thus, my gut feeling at this point is that there is a 15% chance that there will be S4 (probably a four-part series), and 85% that there will not be one. Deadline? Two more years. Hopefully L&F catch a really big fish (for example that S3 was all simply Audrey's comatose dream), and that then gets the ball rolling. Seeing that Matinee Heroes tweet was encouraging, there still is the great cast we have for a new story, and if so, for more than just "Find Laura" from Ray Wise.

Could you elaborate? This seems arbitrary, as Lynch is always working on multiple projects in multiple media (paint, music, film, furniture, etc.). Honestly, after the insane marathon-run of creating TP:TR, I think he needs a palate cleanser. There’s a decent chance that DKL never returns to film at all, given his sporadic relationship with the medium over the past 20 years. But if he does, I’m fully expecting either an entirely original project, or Ronnie Rocket, or Antelope Don’t Run No More. Based on his history, I don’t expect him to dive immediately back into TP for his next project. But I also do truly believe that TP is the one ongoing story he’s always thinking about, and will always return to eventually, as long as time and health allow.

It’s so odd to me that most fans seem to be putting a time limit on the possibility of a S4. TR was a gift none of us could have predicted, decades after the original show ended with no hope of return, and it was a one-off. The only takeaway for me is, anything is possible.
