Get ready to return to “The Twilight Zone.”
The classic anthology series (and inspiration for Disney’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attractions) is getting a reboot on CBS All Access with a trio of producers: Jordan Peele (Get Out), Simon Kinberg (The X-Men franchise), and Marco Ramirez (The Defenders). “Too many times this year it’s felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can’t think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,” Peele said.
The original series, created by Rod Serling, ran on CBS from 1959 to 1964. It was revived for the first time from 1985 – 1989, and again from 2002 – 2003.
The news comes as CBS All Access has found success with another revival, “Star Trek: Discovery.” That series reportedly drew a record number of subscriptions to the streaming platform and has been renewed for a second season.
A premiere date and episode count for the new “Twilight Zone” series has not been determined.
