Twilight Zone remake is coming to CBS All Access, Jordan Peele set to produce

Following the stellar Star Trek Discovery series, now the CBS All Access digital streaming service has green lit a new Twilight Zone series.

Are you ready to re-enter The Twilight Zone? CBS All Access' original series library will continue to expand with the previously announced $1, STRANGE ANGEL, TELL ME A STORY and additional programming to be announced. His excellent horror film, Get Out, tackled racism and cultural appropriation head on.

This reboot won't just be some half-assed take though.

First broadcast in 1959, The Twilight Zone was a pioneer in television drama, known for its suspenseful music composed by French-Romanian Marius Constant and the black-and-white spiral of the credits.

CBS All Access subscribers can watch anything that CBS has to offer, like local market National Football League games, and exclusive All Access shows like "Star Trek: Discovery" and the newest addition to the lineup: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer". Most importantly, he captured the creepy side of American culture.

The New York City native has other high-profile projects in the hopper, including the upcoming Spike Lee movie Black Klansman, and a TBS series titled The Last O.G. Simon Kinberg's Genre Films will also be associated with the production. The original series won three Emmys during its 156-episode run and explored topics including humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices. Wes Craven and William Friedkin directed episodes of the series.

The Twilight Zone has already been remade twice, broadcast from 1985 to 1989 on CBS and again between 2002 and 2003 on the cable channel UPN. That version only ran for one season. We'll update this article as soon as we hear more.
