Jordan Peele Will Host And Narrate 'The Twilight Zone' Revival

Jordan Peele to narrate the new Twilight Zone, see first teaser

Stepping in to fill the shoes of the late, great Rod Serling will be Oscar-winner Jordan Peele. Like many popular shows from the past, The Twilight Zone is getting a reboot.

"Get Out" writer and director Jordan Peele will host and narrate a new "Twilight Zone" series, CBS announced on Thursday. A dimension not only of sight and sound - but of mind.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Peele shared his excitement on being able to revive the role of the show's original host Rod Serling.

CBS All Access first announced the new Twilight Zone series in December, with Peele executive producing with Marco Ramirez (Daredevil) and Simon Kinberg (Legion). The brief, effective teaser above - which recreates the opening titles of the show - starts off with Serling's classic narration, only for Peele's voice to slowly take over by the time the footage ends.

Spiders are 'having a party' in this terrifying 1,000-foot web
As reported by Daily Hellas, a broad area of greenery has been cloaked by the silvery spider-web produced by Tetragnatha spiders. Warmer weather conditions in western Greece have led to the eerie spectacle of a 300m-long spider-web in Aitoliko.

Speaking to Variety earlier this year for a cover story about Monkeypaw Productions, Peele discussed his initial reluctance to take on a revival of "The Twilight Zone," a project that he eventually embraced.

'I'm honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone, ' he continued.

Peele's The Twilight Zone is scheduling to begin filming later this year with an anticipated 2019 debut on CBS's All Access streaming service. Peele and Kinberg are set to serve as executive producers alongside Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.
