Prepare to enter The Twilight Zone when the classic series is revamped for CBS’ streaming service, with Jordan Peele at the helm.
In 1959, Rod Serling created The Twilight Zone, an anthology TV series that delved into various genres from psychological thriller to suspense and fantasy. The series, which has led to several continuations over the decades, from separate revival series to a comic book, radio series and even a feature film. It’s still popular to this day (if you have SyFy, it airs in the early mornings), so it only makes sense that CBS plans to revive it to fit alongside Star Trek: Discovery, the other revival to a classic sci-fi show.
When CBS brings back the series, it will come with some changes. Rather airing on a traditional network as the original and follow-up series were — the first revival went to CBS, while the second revival was on UPN — this new series only be available via the network’s streaming service, CBS All Access.
Jordan Peele of Get Out and Key & Peele fame will be on hand as the show’s executive producer through his company, Monkey Paw. Marc Ramirez will serve as its showrunner. No other details were provided by CBS.
