David Lynch is considered one of the most important American directors, an auteur, his works having achieved cult status over the decades. Twin Peaks, made in association with Mark Frost in 1990, is no exception. The authors envisioned the series as a murder mystery that combines different genres, putting forward new standards in the television medium and proving that audiences are capable of keeping up with more complex TV content. By using a postmodern blend of genres it produced a meta-narrative that also reflects on the status of pop culture genres and on television series itself. 26 years later the story continues, Frost and Lynch have made a third instalment to the series, which came out in 2017. In my thesis I demonstrated how the authors subvert the audience’s expectations in regards to narrative, character development, shorts and style. These alterations along with elements of surrealism art allow for a completely new TV series experience. The revival of the franchise opens up a new perspective on the original work, and in doing so it once again surpasses the standards of its contemporaries.
