TV Quick Hits: ‘Parks and Recreation’ talk; ‘Twin Peaks’ revived; ‘Penny Dreadful’ promo

The latest -Twin Peaks” revived – Let’s start with the news that we never thought we’d be writing about in a billion years: The classic TV show is being updated over on Showtime.

Sources confirm that David Lynch and Mark Frost of the original show will return for a modern-day continuation of the show, which will last for nine episodes on the premium cable network. This will not be a remake, but rather a continuation of the story like what we’ve seen with “Dallas.” Check out the first promo for the show below, which will probably either delight or confuse the heck out of anyone who watches it. (Remember, this is David Lynch we’re talking about here.

Penny Dreadful” teaser – Since we are already talking about Showtime here, why not go ahead and share the latest season 2 teaser for the show? We are still many months away from its return in the spring, but this is the sort of thing that the network likes to put out there to get people excited in advance.

Rick Offerman on the end of “Parks and Recreation” – If you are like us, then you’re already both excited and sad about the final season starting on NBC early next year.

Rick Offerman is right there with you. In describing the emotion already on set to TV Guide in a new interview, he had the following to say:

“There’s a lot of emotion going on. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I believe my boss Mike Schur, and I can’t be completely objective, made one of the finer television shows in my lifetime, and I’ve had the good fortune of having a good part on it. We’ve been able to wrap it up exactly how and when we wanted to. I’m grateful for the ending in that way, and that we’re not being snuffed out by a bumbling network. But it’s going to be traumatic. That show has brought me an incredible amount of good fortune. They’re telling me now I’m going to be left to my own devices to try and get work. And I don’t like those prospects.”
