This announcement has sparked a flurry of speculation among his dedicated followers and the broader film community.

This tease has generated much expectation and widespread anticipation given Lynch’s history of unexpectedness and novelty. Fans are anxious to find out what he will bring this time, especially because his last big project, Twin Peaks: The Return, took place seven years ago. Could it be a new short film, music video or something else completely? As usual with Lynch, anything could happen.


What did David Lynch tease and how & where?

David announced this through a very short video clip that he posted on his Twitter/X feed. It began like this;

"Ladies and gentlemen, something is coming along…for you to see and hear. And it will be coming along on June 5.”

His distinctive choice of words plus the unique way he delivered them drew attention immediately whereby most people noticed that instead of saying ‘June Fifth,’ he said ‘June Five’.

It went viral within seconds with fans engaging in serious discussions about the nature of the forthcoming project. The phrase used “see and hear” implies that it’s going to be a multimedia experience hence speculation ranges from a new movie or TV series to even some music videos.

What could be the mysterious project?

David has such a wide-ranging career that covers many different areas so this present work might take any shape. There is some speculation among fans that it could be related to the David Lynch Foundation whose main focus has been on transcendental meditation lately.

Some are optimistic about another film or TV project. Although Netflix dropped the director's planned series Unrecorded Night and rejected another pitch for an animated film called Snootworld, there is still room for a surprise release. It is not uncommon for Lynch to keep his projects under wraps until the last minute.


Previous works of David Lynch

David’s career has included several groundbreaking and highly influential pieces. His first-ever feature movie was Eraserhead (1977), an unusual and disturbing work that made him famous as someone who creates peculiar yet thought-provoking films. Despite being a flop at the box office, Lynch’s 1984 version of Frank Herbert’s Dune is considered a cult classic today.

David is possibly most notable for Twin Peaks, a television program that began in 1990 and was revived years later as Twin Peaks: The Return in 2017. His other well-known movies are Blue Velvet (1986), Mulholland Drive (2001), and Inland Empire (2006), his most recent full-length feature till now.

Though Lynch’s productivity has slowed down over the past few years, his contributions to the cinema and television scenes are still profound. His uncanny ability to blend beauty with strangeness or ordinariness with Anakatoi continues to draw viewers.


David's latest teaser has rekindled excitement and curiosity amongst his fans once again. The anticipation ahead of June 5th is rife with the expectation of something “to see and hear."
