The cast for the reboot of The Twilight Zone is expanding, with The Nun’s Taissa Farmiga joining The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani, Sanaa Lathan and Adam Scott. She is not the only one who has joined today either, because Rhea Seehorn, Luke Kirby, Ike Barinholtz and Percy Hynes-White have also been added. It’s shaping up very nicely.
CBS Access have given the series order for The Twilight Zone and Jordan Peele (Get Out) is one of the producers. Peele will also narrate, stepping into the shoes worn by Rod Sterling.
The original incarnation of The Twilight Zone ran on CBS for 156 episodes from 1959-64, and became a key influence on the likes of The Outer Limits and, more recently, Black Mirror. No details regarding the content of the new episodes have been revealed, but a premiere date has been slated for 2019.
