The ‘Twin Peaks’ cast have launched a #SaveTwinPeaks campaign, following the news that the show’s creator David Lynch is no longer part of the planned reboot project.

A third series of the cult classic is set to air in 2016, however, last week, David revealed that he won’t be directing the shows.

Now, cast members including Sherilyn Fenn, Mädchen Amick, James Marshall, Dana Ashbrook, Al Strobel, Kimmy Robertson and Peggy Lipton have shared their disappointment.

The actor’s all star in a video that’s been posted to Mädchen’s Facebook page and in the clip, each star completes the sentence: “‘Twin Peaks’ without David Lynch is like…”.

Answers include “a girl without a secret”, “a waitress without her uniform” and “a motorcycle without its rider”.

David shared the reason for his decision on Twitter, writing: “After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.”

Showtime, the network behind the reboot, then released a statement in response, which read: “We were saddened to read David Lynch's statement today since we believed we were working towards solutions with David and his reps on the few remaining deal points.

"Showtime also loves the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ and we continue to hold out hope that we can bring it back in all its glory with both of its extraordinary creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost, at its helm."
