As the series was a huge ratings draw for a time, it naturally influenced and inspired several others across all media. It paved the way for shows like ''Series/NorthernExposure'' (which stole its Northwest locale), ''Series/TheSopranos'' (which stole its dream sequences), and ''Series/TheXFiles'' (which looted wholesale from it). As far as video games influenced by ''Twin Peaks'' go, they range from the obvious like ''VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition'' and ''VideoGame/AlanWake'', to the less so like ''VideoGame/NelsonTethersPuzzleAgent'' and even ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''.

** Agent Cooper, who talks to a tape recorder while hanging upside-down by his boots in his room. His superior, Gordon Cole - played by the real Cloudcuckoolander of the series, DavidLynch himself - was obviously an influence....

* WildMassGuessing: Due to the extremely ambiguous nature of WordOfGod (we're talking about DavidLynch here after all), much of what is accepted as canon online (especially on this page) is based on some of the more probable and believable examples of WildMassGuessing as to what's going on in the series. Even that isn't exactly saying much...

After years of rumors of a return (all of which were denied by Lynch), Showtime picked the show up for an additional nine episodes in October 2014. It was initially reported that Lynch and Frost would return to write and direct, but after Lynch didn't feel Showtime [[ScrewedByTheNetwork were willing to give him a proper budget]], he [[http://www.tvguide.com/news/david-lynch-drops-out-twin-peaks-revival-showtime/ annonced that he had dropped out in April 2015]]. However, in May 2015, Lynch eventually confirmed that he will be directing and writing the new season and that there will be more than the nine episodes initially announced -- that and the two decades of time between seasons would be crucial to the plot. Location shooting has been ongoing throughout Autumn 2015.

* OverlyLongGag: The Season 2 opening with the wounded Cooper trying in vain to get the hotel waiter to realize that he has been seriously injured and needs medical attention. Even when Cooper realizes that it is a fool's errand and decides to just go with the flow and humor the waiter, the scene ''just keeps on going'', eventually totalling a wooping five minutes.
