Jordan Peele’s reimagined “The Twilight Zone” has a new trailer that shows off a bit of what we can expect when the series arrives on CBS All Access this spring, and we are now even more excited to watch it. Check the footage out below, and let us know what you think!
John Cho, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Erica Tremblay, Sanaa Lathan, Adam Scott, and Kumail Nanjiani are all set to star in the rebooted series, which is hosted and narrated by Jordan Peele. “The Twilight Zone” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films. Peele and Kinberg serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Carol Serling, Rick Berg, and Greg Yaitanes.
The original “The Twilight Zone” premiered on October 2, 1959, on CBS. The series took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. “The Twilight Zone” became a worldwide phenomenon as it used socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964.
The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides, and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional dramas could not. Every episode of the original series is available to stream now on CBS All Access, and the new incarnation kicks off on April 1st.
