Twin Peaks stars: We’re filming 18 episodes for Showtime revival
Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee, speaking at a Twin Peaks panel, said the number of episodes has expanded from nine to 18. Showtime said earlier this month the revival would “total more than the originally announced nine hours,” but the cable network has yet to confirm that 18 episodes will indeed be made.

Elisabeth Moss: Mad Men gave Peggy the right ending, even with Stan
“I feel like everyone was sort of expecting her to run the office, or become creative director, or take over Don’s job, and all of that was just unrealistic,” says Moss, who also tells Deadline she took home Peggy’s typewriter and a bunch of other souvenirs from the set. “I mean, she’s still in her early 30s. She’s not there yet, but Pete’s right when he says she’ll be creative director by 1980. She’ll be about 40 then, and that makes sense. So, for me, I felt like it was the best surprise to go the opposite direction and actually end up giving her personal happiness, which is the last thing that you expected.”
