Based on Production Weekly, I think it's going ahead (though for all we know it's been abandoned) Netflix appears to be the likely home. A lot of circumstantial (some of which I listed out in a long-ish post on the previous page) points to it being more TP but two points could make that less likely and point to it being an original work: Mark Frost denying involvement and it being Netflix (not Showtime).
I assume the copyright was for scripts. You can’t copyright an idea; it needs to be something tangible. I suppose it might have just been treatments/summaries, but it strikes me as likely that there are completed scripts.
Production Weekly is the totally legit part. Again, I know eyeboogers may still be doubting their validity, but whatever is printed in Production Weekly I believe is verified information. So, Netflix. Peter Deming. And that philosopher lady being on board are all facts at this point. The various titles may be official or working titles. Beyond that, it's all guesswork. But those are, as far as my understanding, facts.
And, yeah, I don't think there's any reason not to be believe - more than three years on from the completion of the airing of The Return, one year after various rumors began circling, and a whole quarantined year in which Lynch was actually forced to stay home and work on art, and a few months after Lynch admitted that he would probably be working on a film or series if not for the pandemic - that the scripts are not in some stage of completion. IMO, there's no reason to doubt any of that.
