David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks’ to Leave Netflix in July 2021

The already-depleted library of ViacomCBS on Netflix becomes more relevant today as David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks is set to leave the streaming giant, with both seasons, in July 2021. The two seasons of the series first aired way back in April 1990 through June 1991. If there were foundations to the mystery-horror-drama genre, one of the pillars would be Twin Peaks.

What is Twin Peaks all about?

For just over a year, the series got up and went out to answer just one question: who killed Laura Palmer? Who would’ve expected that such a question would yield so many fans and a year’s worth of content and episodes? At that point, you could really tell that it was the peak of television.

Where is Twin Peaks headed?

Twin Peaks got subscribers to enjoy 30 episodes of spine-thrilling content. Alongside that, The Twilight Zone, the series set to leave with Twin Peaks, will also be leaving. That means almost 150 episodes are set to leave the streaming giant as soon as July comes. If you’re one of those who loved both series, make sure you bid them goodbye to the platform.

Rumour has it that Twin Peaks has a lot of platforms to choose from. It seems as though Hulu is a sure-fire candidate for the series to come to in the future. However, Paramount+ and Showtime are frontrunners to make the series an exclusive show. I mean, this isn’t really new for ViacomCBS. The platform has been very selective in licensing its content.

Though the rebooted Twin Peaks series never really got to see the light of day in the United States, it was still enjoyed in countries like Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and Brazil amongst all other regions of the world.

What does this removal mean for Netflix?

Now that the series and The Twilight Zone are gone from the streaming giant, there’s a big hole that they should address pretty quickly. Starting July 2021, Netflix will be shorthanded on classic TV shows. Considering that the pandemic isn’t really gone, people still turn to watch content on streaming platforms to atone for their boredom. Some retro television always hits the spot, and both series checked always seemed to check all the boxes.

Fans of David Lynch, of course, the man is a living legend. If you’re on Netflix just to see his work, then that’s a pretty bad fortune for you. Although, he still has some projects with the streaming giant like WHAT DID JACK DO? and a future one that includes Mark Frost yet again in a project rumoured to be titled Unrecorded Night. Whatever it is, make sure you get the best of David Lynch before Twin Peaks scrams out of Netflix.
