Upon the endless stream of updates for Showtime's ultra-hyped revival of '90s cult classic Twin Peaks, it was revealed today that director David Lynch (who left and then immediately returned to the project) will be shooting every episode as one continuous film.

Deadline Hollywood notes that during the network's TCA Executive Session that Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost wrote one lengthy script, shooting episodes as an entire movie. Lynch will then edit the episodes for appropriate TV length. As for casting, the network has kept rumors tight, aside from lead Kyle MacLachlan. "You should be optimistic that the people you want to be there will be there, in addition to some surprises," Showtime Networks president David Nevins says.

Nevins mentioned that production for the show will finally begin next month and there are still hopes that, despite rumors of dates being shoved back to 2017, that the show will begin airing next year. "I'll take it when it's ready," he says. "I hope that’s sooner rather than later."
