'Twilight Zone' Reboot: Jordan Peele Is Set To Bring Back Series On CBS All Access

Close

Following the success of Star Trek: Discovery, CBS All Access is reportedly reviving another classic series!

A reboot for the Twilight Zone is currently in the works with director Jordan Peele and writer Marco Ramirez teaming up to bring this fan favorite back for everyone to enter into another dimension.

The original series ran for five seasons from 1959 to 1964. The first three seasons had episodes containing a 30-minute format. Season four featured one-hour-long episodes. The season went back to the original 30 minute time frame. The first revival of the show was in 1985. The second revival appeared on the UPN channel in 2002 and was hosted by actor Forest Whitaker.

This will be the show's third revival.

Peele was the writer, co-producer, and director of the critically acclaimed psychological thriller, Get Out, which was released in February 2017. The film featured breakout actor Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams, who portray the couple Chris Washington and Rose Armitage. They visited Rose's parents for the weekend and well, let's just say things take a turn for the worse.

Peele is also the co-writer and co-star of the Comedy Central show Key and Peele, opposite Keegan Michael Key.

Ramirez will be in charge of the writing the script. He's also the writer for the original Netflix shows The Defenders, Daredevil, and Orange is the New Black.

With these two creative forces teaming up, it is looking to be a great revival!

Currently, CBS All Access is reveling in the success of it's most recent reboot, Star Trek: Discovery.

Star Trek follows the adventures of Michael Burnham ( Sonequa Martin-Green), a science specialist on board the USS Shenzhou. Anthony Rapp, Jason Issacs, and Doug Jones also star in the show.

Revivals seem to be in high demand as more shows and movies from the 60's, 70's, 80's are being rebooted.

No word has been said yet on when the Twilight Zone series will be premiering.

The reboot will be joining other shows that will be only available online such as, The Good Wife spin-off The Good Fight and the upcoming police comedy No Activity, which will feature Saturday Night Live alum and Daddy's Home star Will Ferrell.
