Critic Reviews for Twin Peaks: The Return

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (28)

It is simultaneously heartbreaking and absolute entertainment gold.

Aggressive Comix

It contained multitudes...and Michael Cera doing a Marlon Brando impression. It was pure televisual maximalism.

When watching everything just... fits.

New Zealand Herald

The new series was exactly as we should have expected -- not like the original or the follow-up as fans had speculated but a continuation of the two, although still absolutely modern and unique.

Daily Mail (UK)

I have no idea what I just witnessed. I don't mean to be cute; I don't know exactly what to say about an intrinsically weird series that returned twenty-five years later, as esoteric as ever.

October 16, 2017 | Full Review…

David Lynch's cult-classic revival is exactly as imaginative-and as uncomfortable-as it always needed to be.

Audience Reviews for Twin Peaks: The Return

David Lynch takes a giant sh**, calls it Twin Peaks: Season 3 (aka The Return), and rubs the fans faces in it. There's no real story; stuff just happens for 18-episodes and then it ends. Most of the season isn't even set in Twin Peaks, and the original cast members who return are mostly only used in glorified cameos that have no connection to any storyline. Everything fans knew and loved about the series is trashed as the show's previous mythology and character developments are completely disregarded. Artistic douchebaggery at its worst, Twin Peaks: Season 3 is utterly pointless garbage.
