Check out the new trailer for Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone
While we got a slight tease as to what Jordan Peele has in store for his reimagining of the iconic anthology series The Twilight Zone during the Super Bowl, the new trailer (via TVLine) gives us a much better idea of what’s in store. And it looks to be every bit as unsettling as anyone could’ve hoped. You can check it out in the post below!
The new trailer also gives us a look at the show’s impressive array of guest stars, including Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Alison Tolman (Fargo), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead). There’s even a cameo by Peele himself, which might even give you chills.
The new Twilight Zone series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films. Peele, Kinberg, and Marco Ramirez will serve as executive producers for the series and collaborate on the premiere episode. Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon will also serve as executive producers.
The original The Twilight Zone took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. Created by Rod Serling, it was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama could not. In 1983 Steven Spielberg produced a big budget anthology film version, Twilight Zone: The Movie, directed by Spielberg, John Landis, Joe Dante, and George Miller. The show was revived by CBS in the 1980s and ran for three seasons, helmed by the likes of William Friedkin, Atom Egoyan, and Wes Craven. It was revived again on UPN and hosted by Forest Whitaker in 2002 for one season.
You can check out The Twilight Zone when it premieres on CBS All Access on April 1.
