CBS All Access officially orders Twilight Zone reboot

CBS All Access officially orders Twilight Zone reboot

The anthology series was created by Rod Serling and delved into topics of science fiction, horror, fantasy and mystery in episodes that could feel all too real at times. "Twilight Zone: The Movie" came out in 1983.

United States television channel CBS announced Wednesday it will resurrect the science-fiction series, in a bid to boost its subscription-based streaming platform CBS All Access.

"The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life". The project will be produced by Peele's production company, Monkeypaw Productions. He will be joined in the executive producer role by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Dark Phoenix) and Marco Ramirez (The Defenders).

Are you ready to travel through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind?

The Twilight Zone marks the latest original series at CBS All Acess, following the heels of another classic revival Star Trek: Discovery, along with The Good Fight, a spinoff of the legal drama The Good Wife. CBS calls its landmark show "the godfather of sci-fi", and it plans to reimagine the series for a modern audience.

"The Twilight Zone", the show that captivated audiences in the early 1960s and beyond with its time-and-space-bending plots, will return to (streaming) television in a reboot helmed by Jordan Peele. The Hollywood Reporter noted the network's CEO, Leslie Moonves, announced on November 2 during an earnings call that CBS was preparing to take on the anthology series as part of its digital catalogue of programming for All Access. CBS All Access is now available online at CBS.com, on mobile devices via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, and on Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Fire TV.
