Today it has been announced that the reboot of The Twilight Zone will premiere with two episodes when it begins on 1st April. We assure you that this is not an April Fool. We don’t think, anyway.
The cast has been shaping up very nicely with Rhea Seehorn, Luke Kirby, Ike Barinholtz and Percy Hynes-White, Taissa Farmiga, Kumail Nanjiani, Sanaa Lathan, John Cho, Greg Kinnear, Jacob Tremblay, Steven Yuen and Adam Scott.
Jordan Peele (Get Out) is one of the show’s producers and he 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 now been confirmed and that’s exciting.
