There's more bad news for Twin Peaks fans who are eagerly anticipating the new series from Showtime.

The revival has officially been delayed until 2017, according to Variety.

It's not the first time David Lynch's project has run into delays.  In April Lynch abandoned the project due to dissatisfaction over the series run and budget.

He came back on board when the series was increased from 9 to 18 episodes and the knock on effect of that is that the finished product won't hit screens for some time.

With new stars including Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgard, Balthazar Getty and Prison Break's Robert Knepper on board, it should be worth the wait.

Kyle MacLachlan has been confirmed to return as Agent Dale Cooper and the recent teaser featured Michael J Anderson as Man from Another Place.  Also original cast members Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), MAdchen Amick (Shelly Johnson) and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer) will also return.

Had the series released next year it would have marked 25 years since the end of the last series.
