Jordan Peele’s ‘Twilight Zone’ Reboot in Works at CBS All Access

CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves recently announced that CBS All Access is preparing a reboot of the iconic sci-fi anthology.  It’s currently uncertain if the series will be a straight-to-series order or just development.

The Twilight Zone series created by Rod Sterling ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959-1964 with CBS Television Studios retaining the rights to the cult classic.  This will give them executive power to produce a new take of the show.

  1. My expectations from Peele and Ramirez are very high. I think Defenders was written about as well as it could be as part of a franchise, and Peele did an excellent job on Get Out. So I expect much!

  2. They certainly have a lot to live up to giving the fact that just about every iteration of TW is either dope or decent enough to be good…can’t front kinda hyped about it though!
