In our last Twin Peaks news item
, we passed along information about how Lancelot Narayan, one of the industry's leading producers of DVD bonus material, had been engaged by Paramount to work on extras for the studio's upcoming release of Twin Peaks - Season 2
. That was some great news, and we know we're going to get a great product out of Paramount for this highly anticipated release.
But not everybody was so sure. In that previous story, we found ourselves mentioning bad rumors on the 'net that claimed the stuidio had no interest in taking the time to remaster the the 2nd season's negatives in the same fashion as Artisan remastered the very-well-received first season.

New Transfers for Twin Peaks Season 2 ?!!!
I have just received information today that has confirmed that Paramount has decided to go with new video transfers for Twin Peaks: Season 2 DVD set. It appears that the information I had received from Paramount Germany was old information, as they had planned on releasing the Series on their own shortly after their release of Season 1 on DVD. Now that Paramount is doing a worldwide release, all territories under the Paramount branch will be using the same transfers for the Season 2 box set. Great news indeed!!! Now we'll just have to wait and see if the new transfer is up to the same quality as the Season 1 set.
So that's that. Dugpa.com also has a new story posted yesterday that mentions that a new documentary based on the film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
is in the works, and they ask for help from readers who may have materials that could be used in it. Look over there for details about that. And stay tuned to TVShowsOnDVD for all the info about Twin Peaks - Season 2
. We'll bring that info to you just as soon as we possibly can!
