Confirmed: Jordan Peele Will Reboot The Twilight Zone for CBS All Access



Last month we let you guys know that there was a rumor roaming around town that Get Out writer-director Jordan Peele and his Monkeypaw production banner were in talks to reboot the classic sci-fi anthology series “The Twilight Zone.”

Today we can confirm that Peele will guide the reboot along with the help of Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez. The three will serve as exec producers and collaborate on the pilot.

“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 told Deadline.

“’The Twilight Zone’ was a touchstone in my life,” Kinberg adds. “The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true; and I’m so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco, and the team at CBS All Access.”

“The original ‘The Twilight Zone’ bridged science fiction, horror, and fantasy together to explore human nature and provide social commentary in a way that audiences had never seen before,” Julie McNamara, EVP Original Content at CBS All Access, says. “Under the auspices of Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg, and Marco Ramirez, and with the creative freedom that the CBS All Access platform affords, this is an incredible opportunity to bring today’s audiences a modern reimagining of this iconic series.”

Jordan Peele’s “The Twilight Zone” reboot will air on CBS All Access in the near future. We’ll let you know specifically when to expect it soon so stay tuned!

“The Twilight Zone” is an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. The episodes are in various genres, including fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and psychological thriller, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist and usually with a moral.
