It’s good news all-round for David Lynch fans — the serial-surrealist is reportedly working on a new series with Netflix, under the working title of Wisteria. This news comes to us from What’s On Netflix.
Lynch is said to be writing and directing the series, with frequent collaborator Sabrina S. Sutherland on board to produce. Other than that, insight into the series is sparse: Production Weekly reports that the project doesn’t begin shooting until mid-2021, so we’ll have to remain patient.
David Lynch is reportedly directing a new series for Netflix
When asked about a secret Netflix project, Lynch responded with the following (via What’s On Netflix):
There’s all kinds of rumors. I’ve got a show called What Did Jack Do? on Netflix right now. It’s a great show about a monkey. It’s something you’ve got to see. And it will really help you in quarantine.
Lynch’s last film, Inland Empire, was released in 2006, and in 2013 he wrote and directed a brand new limited series of Twin Peaks on Showtime. He’s been particularly vocal on his YouTube channel, David Lynch Theater, since lockdown hit in the spring.
As well as reviving his daily weather report, Lynch has been drip-feeding a steady stream of unreleased shorts and homespun gems. We have reached out to Netflix for comment on this story, but they refused to comment. We’ll let you know if there are any new developments regarding Lynch’s secret Netflix project.
