The illusory mystery of Twin Peaks lives on… again. Following last week’s announcement of Showtime’s reboot of the cult-favorite series comes the news that co-creator Mark Frost is penning a novel that picks up where the show left off in 1991. According to a press release from publisher Flatiron Books, The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks “reveals what has happened to the people of that iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago and offers a deeper glimpse into the central mystery that was only touched on by the original series.”

The bestselling author’s book is set to hit shelves in late 2015—before Frost’s TV revival airs in 2016. Frost is reuniting with his original Twin Peaks co-creator and co-executive producer David Lynch to make a Showtime limited series sequel of the critically acclaimed show. It is not yet clear whether the plot of the novel and the sequel series will be the same, but Frost is unequivocally thrilled at the chance to novelize his creation. “This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life, for old fans and new,” Frost said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

Unaired 'Borgias' series finale to be released as e-book

Showtime announced via Twitter that the recently canceled period drama The Borgias will receive a proper ending in text form with the release of The Borgia Apocalypse to major e-book retailers this week. The e-book is based on show creator Neil Jordan’s original script for the two-hour series finale.

The series, which ended this June in its third season, chronicled the insatiable appetites and devious ambitions of the Borgia family led by Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI. Fans of the departed cable series who were left wondering what happened next for Pope Alexander, lovers/siblings Lucrezia and Cesare, or assassin Micheletto need not look at another Wikipedia entry about the infamous historical dynasty for a sense of closure.
