After ABC's cancellation of Twin Peaks in 1991, and the release of David Lynch's 1992 prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Lynch reportedly planned two more films that would have continued and then concluded the series' narrative. But in a 2001 interview, he said that the Twin Peaks franchise was as "dead as a doornail."
In 2007, artist Matt Haley and Twin Peaks producer Robert Engels began work on a graphic-novel continuation of the series, to be included in the "Complete Mystery" DVD box set. Haley stated: "Bob and I had a number of discussions about what the story would be, I was keen to use whatever notes they had for the proposed third season. I really wanted this to be a literal 'third season' of the show." Lynch vetoed the project, stating that he respected the effort but did not want to continue the story of Twin Peaks in any way.
Rumors spread in early 2013 that some form of return to Twin Peaks was imminent, but these were dismissed by Lynch's daughter Jennifer Lynch (author of The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer), as well as co-creator Mark Frost, who wrote that "truth is more valuable and much harder to come by." In May 2013, cast member Ray Wise recounted what Lynch had said to him about a possible continuation: "Well, Ray, you know, the town is still there. And I suppose it's possible that we could revisit it. Of course, you're already dead... but we could maybe work around that."
In 2014, the development and release of the Twin Peaks: The Complete Mystery Blu-ray set, in addition to Wise's earlier comments, caused fans to speculate that Twin Peaks would return in some form. In January 2014, a casting call for a "Twin Peaks promo" to be directed by Lynch was revealed to be the filming of a featurette for The Complete Mystery. In September 2014, Lynch answered a question about Twin Peaks at the Lucca Film Festival by saying it was a "tricky question", and that "there's always a possibility... and you just have to wait and see."
On October 6, 2014, it was announced that Showtime would air a nine-episode miniseries written by Lynch and Frost and directed entirely by Lynch. Frost emphasized that the new episodes are not a remake or reboot but a continuation of the series. The episodes are set in the present day, and the passage of 25 years is an important element in the plot. Regarding whether the miniseries will become an ongoing series, Frost said, "The proof will be in the pudding. If we have a great time doing it and everybody loves it and they decide there's room for more, I could see it going that way."
In March 2015, Lynch expressed doubts about the production due to "complications". But Showtime confirmed the series was moving forward, stating, "Nothing is going on that's any more than any preproduction process with David Lynch. Everything is moving forward and everybody is crazy thrilled and excited." In April 2015, Lynch said he would not direct the nine episodes due to budget constraints. But Lynch and Showtime came to an agreement, with Lynch confirming on May 15, 2015, that he would direct, and that there would be more episodes than the originally announced nine. At a Twin Peaks panel in Seattle, cast members Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee said that the new series would consist of 18 episodes and Angelo Badalamenti would return as composer.
On January 12, 2015, Kyle MacLachlan was confirmed as returning to the series. It was reported that Peter Sarsgaard had been cast but he later said, "I'm not doing Twin Peaks" and it "was a rumor that was not founded on nothing." In October 2015, it was confirmed that Michael Ontkean, who portrayed Sheriff Harry S. Truman and has since retired from acting, would not return for the revival. In October 2015 it was reported that the role of town sheriff would be filled by Robert Forster, later confirmed as playing Frank Truman, the brother of an ailing Harry. Forster was originally cast as Harry in the 1990 pilot, but was replaced by Ontkean due to scheduling issues. Also in October, David Duchovny teased his return as Agent Denise Bryson. In November 2015, it was reported that Miguel Ferrer would reprise his role as Albert Rosenfield and that Richard Beymer and David Patrick Kelly would return as Benjamin Horne and Jerry Horne, respectively. In December 2015, Alicia Witt confirmed she would reprise her role as Gersten Hayward.
Russ Tamblyn underwent open-heart surgery in late 2014 and was still recovering in 2015. Lynch and Frost were still hoping Tamblyn would join the cast for the new season. On September 28, 2015, Catherine E. Coulson, who was planned to reprise her role of the Log Lady in the new series, died of cancer. Both Tamblyn and Coulson were later confirmed as part of the cast, as Coulson had filmed a few scenes before her death.
The series' first teaser trailer, released in December 2015, confirmed the involvement of Michael Horse (Tommy "Hawk" Hill). In January 2016, it was reported that Sherilyn Fenn would reprise her role as Audrey Horne in a "major presence." In February 2016, it was reported that Lynch would reprise his role as Gordon Cole. Frequent Lynch collaborator Laura Dern was cast in a "top-secret pivotal role". In April 2016, a complete cast list was released, featuring 217 actors, with actors returning from the earlier series marked with asterisks.
Before his death in January 2016, David Bowie had intended to make a cameo appearance as FBI Agent Phillip Jeffries, his character from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. In January and February 2017, respectively, cast members Miguel Ferrer and Warren Frost died, but both appear in the new series.
In July 2015, Frost suggested that the series would premiere in 2017 rather than 2016, as originally planned. The series began filming in September 2015, and Showtime president David Nevins said, "I'm hoping we make 2016. It's not clear. It's ultimately going to be in [series co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost's] control." Nevins also stated, "I don't know [how many episodes there will be]. They're going to decide, I expect it to be more than nine, but it's open-ended. I know what the shooting schedule is and then we'll have him cut into it however many episodes it feels best at." In January 2016, Nevins confirmed that the series would premiere in the first half of 2017. The series was shot continuously from a single, long shooting script before being edited into episodes. In January 2016, it was reported that filming was more than halfway done. Filming was completed by April 2016.
