Jordan Peele's 'Twilight Zone' Is Coming

07 December 2017

Producers on the new version include Jordan Peele ("Get Out", "Key & Peele"), Simon Kinberg ("Legion", "Star Wars Rebels") and Marco Ramirez ("Daredevil").

On Wednesday, CBS also unveiled a new project: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer, coming exclusively to CBS All Access".

The original Twilight Zone, hosted by writer Rod Serling, took viewers to another dimension with a mix of horror, science-fiction, drama, comedy and superstition. So with this appreciation for horror and thriller, it makes sense that CBS and Peele would find a way to work together on a "Twilight Zone" reboot. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone. It has officially been ordered by CBS All Access, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to a press release from CBS earlier this week, Jordan Peele is set to produce the remake of a beloved classic: The Twilight Zone. The original series won three Emmys during its 156-episode run and explored topics including humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices. CBS All Access' original series library will continue to expand with the previously announced $1, STRANGE ANGEL, TELL ME A STORY and additional programming to be announced.

CBS All Access is the CBS Television Network's digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

It's the third TV reboot for the famed sci-fi franchise, which was brought back for a 65-episode run from 1985 and 1989, and a 44-episode run from 2002 until 2003.

CBS All Access is available on your mobile device, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, PS4, Xbox or Windows 10.
