In europe we were more open-minded for more seasons and this is why the movie has been done, because the european understood it better ... they want to know more about Twin Peaks at this period of time.
I think, had Twin Peaks been a more recent HBO show, it would comfortably have run 10-12 episodes a season for seven years. The reason the first season did so well was, in part, down to the tightly-focused eight-ish episodes (seven episodes and a film.) I feel the show struggled with the demands of 22-26 episode seasons.
Oh, for sure. Though I think 5 seasons is the likelier number.
22 episodes easily leads serials to creative burnout and interminable storytelling. 12-13 hours per year would've been a much better deal.
