I love The Return, but I'm so hesitant about all this. I can't deny I would be open to, and excited for, a potential season 4. But I can't help thinking that a further continuation could leave all the really poignant themes of finality and loss in season 3 a little less potent. In my opinion the story's ended perfectly. It's so thematically sound and resonant. I know deep down that I really don't want any more.
I was proved wrong worrying that the Laura Palmer story (as we knew it at the time) had no mileage left, so I could be proved wrong again. I hope so.
