I love Twin Peaks. The show had a profound influence on me when I was a child, marking my transition from a snotty kid that lived on cartoons and MacGyver to ... a slightly older snotty kid that lived on cartoons, MacGyver, and Twin Peaks.
I love Twin Peaks, which is why I want it to never come back.
Why It Should Never Return:
Because it wouldn't be Twin Peaks anymore.
"Oh, boo hoo. Would the actors having a few extra wrinkles tug your itty bitty heartstrings?" you ask. "Of course the show would be different, it's been 25 years. Go read up on time skips as a narrative device, crybaby." To this, curiously cheeky person I just made up for the sake of narrative, I have two arguments: One, fuck you, you don't even exist. Two, I'm not saying the hypothetical Twin Peaks revival can't be a decent show. I'm saying it wouldn't be the same show.
Twin Peaks was always destined to be a short and beautiful thing. Its appeal lies in atmosphere and carefully balanced contradiction -- the coziness of a beautiful, all-American small town contrasted with the sins hiding underneath the surface and the absolute evil that lurks at the edges. The fun came from peeling all those layers of wickedness and absurdity one by one, and it worked like a dream ... as long as there were layers left. Once Laura Palmer's killer was revealed midway through the second season, the final layer was gone, and the core turned out to be a mystical potluck of lodges, spheres, hirsute chaos spirits, and tiny, overdressed arm-deities.

Treated right, there are still the makings of a good show there, but too many secrets have already been revealed to keep things how they were. Any future episodes of Twin Peaks wouldn't be about exploring the secrets of a fascinating town with underlying darkness. They would be all about fighting said darkness. The final episodes irrevocably tore the sleepy little town's facade down for the viewer, leaving it less Twin Peaks and more Sunnydale. About two episodes in, Buffy and Angel might as well ride into town to kick Evil Agent Cooper in the dick before hitting the Black Lodge to punch everyone.
Which ... actually does sound kind of awesome.
Why It Probably Will Anyway:
Although David Lynch officially denies all rumors of a series revival, stories of him privately discussing it with former cast members have been known to surface. Add that to the fact that some other series creators have been pretty open about their desire to return to the creepy little town, and that Netflix has allegedly expressed tentative interest in rebooting the show, and it doesn't seem entirely impossible that a (possibly Lynch-less) New Twin Peaks will eventually confuse the shit out of viewers.
