Jordan Peele Bringing Back The Twilight Zone

Jordan Peele Bringing Back The Twilight Zone

CEO Leslie Moonves during an earnings call last week, the series has now been officially confirmed. Ramirez, who recently helmed Marvel's The Defenders, will pen the script and serve as showrunner for the reboot.

Simon Kinberg said in a statement that 'The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in [his] life, ' and that 'the opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true'.

It's been a huge year for Peele, whose critically-acclaimed horror film Get Out was a smash hit - taking in $175 million domestically and another $78 million overseas, against a $4.5 million budget - with building buzz as award season approaches. The director will undoubtedly take the same approach with this reboot.

Hopefully, CBS will at least air the Twilight Zone pilot on primetime, as they did with Discovery, giving fans a chance to sample the show before they buy in. Most importantly, he captured the creepy side of American culture. Titled "The Twilight Zone: The Movie", the movie was directed by John Landis. Simon Kinberg's Genre Films will also be associated with the production. Serling wrote nearly two-thirds of the scripts himself.

You'll need a CBS All Access subscription to watch the show; rather than through cable, you'll get access to the episodes over the Internet through the streaming platform. The show also spawned a 1983 feature film that starred Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks. The second reboot, starring Forest Whitaker, premiered on UPN from 2002 to 2003. That version only ran for one season.

Let's hope this new revival fares much better. As for the latest reboot, the episode count has not been announced yet. We'll update this article as soon as we hear more.
