The reboot of the classic episodic TV show The Twilight Zone will hit CBS All Access on April 1st, and with just over a month to go, CBS has released a full trailer for the series.
Get Out director Jordan Peele will host and produce the show, as heard in a surreal TV spot that aired during this year’s Super Bowl. This new teaser shows off a bit more of what to expect from this new effort: a series of surreal, unsettling episodes with a cast that includes Adam Scott, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cho, and Peele himself.
The original Twilight Zone was created by Rod Serling in 1959, featuring a series of standalone, moralistic episodes that ranged from science fiction to suspense to horror. Peele’s reboot is just the latest in a string of revivals for the franchise — CBS produced a trio of seasons in 1985, and UPN aired its own version in 2002. Anthology shows have been popular over the last several years, with ongoing shows like Channel 4 / Netflix’s Black Mirror being joined by Amazon’s Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and Lore, HBO’s Room 104, and Hulu’s Dimension 404.
