Why Reboot TV Shows?

David Lynch, the creative force behind the cult-classic show Twin Peaks, has announced through Twitter that he is pulling out of the series’ reboot due to a lack of funding from Showtime. His departure from Twin Peaks reveals the reason that so many other show revivals end up being so underwhelming: they’re meant to attract the large amounts of residual fans without injecting any new creativity into the actual storylines. It’s unclear whether Showtime will continue without Lynch or abandon the reboot altogether.
