Six months ago, the news of a Twin Peaks continuation on Showtime had the internet more excited than Agent Cooper over some damn fine coffee.
But now, that's been replaced with disappointment as the original series' creator David Lynch has left the project. He announced his departure on Twitter.
In a statement, Showtime hoped this still wasn't the end of Lynch's involvement in the project.
"We were saddened to read David Lynch's statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points. Showtime also loves the world of Twin Peaks and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm."
Showtime originally announced Twin Peaks's return in October.
Rumors about the revival potentially being canceled began in mid-March when Lynch told ABC Australia, "I haven't returned yet and we are still working on the contract."
Kyle MacLachlan, who played Agent Dale Cooper in the original series, had signed on to revive his role. A rep for the actor did not immediately reply to BuzzFeed News' request for comment as to whether or not he would continue with the series.
