'The Twilight Zone' is Reborn at CBS All Access with Jordan Peele

CBS All Access officially orders Twilight Zone reboot

Jordan Peele isn't sitting on his Get Out laurels.

The Twilight Zone is the latest original scripted series to join the CBS All Access slate, which already includes The Good Fight, Star Trek: Discovery, No Activity and the upcoming series $1, Strange Angel and Tell Me a Story.

The original "Twilight Zone", created by Rod Serling, was an anthology series that delved into science fiction, fantasy, and horror in every episode.

Details on The Twilight Zone, Courtesy of CBS: The original The Twilight Zone took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.

Whistleblower: At inauguration, Flynn texted business partner on nuclear plan
On Inauguration Day, Flynn apparently texted Copson that the power plant venture was "good to go", according to the whistleblower. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The series premiere will be executive produced by Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez along with Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon. The show's less-loved first revival ran from 1985 to 1989.

The show will have a trio of producers with genre experience at the helm: Jordan Peele (Get Out), Simon Kinberg (The X-Men franchise), and Marco Ramirez (The Defenders). CBS CEO Leslie Moonves said the series would be added to its streaming service lineup in a conference call with investors last month and Peele was rumored to be involved.

That film, which marked Peele's feature directorial debut, tapped into the zeitgeist in a horrifying way, so one imagines he can bring the same kind of tact and insight to The Twilight Zone. He said it's a good time to revisit the off-kilter world of The Twilight Zone.

An episode count has not been announced for the first season, but CBS says it will air exclusively on its streaming service that now features "Star Trek: Discovery", Will Ferrell's "No Activity" and "The Good Wife" spinoff "The Good Fight".
