It has been 53-years since the original The Twilight Zone aired, and now the cult classic is heading back to screens with an anthology series helmed by Get Out director Jordan Peele.
According to THR, CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves announced the news at the company’s earnings call on Thursday, saying that CBS All Access is readying for a reboot of the dark sci-fi series.
The Emmy award-winning series originally aired on CBS from 1959-1964 and ran for five seasons and 156 episodes, before being rebooted in 1985, and later unsuccessfully rebooted in 2002 with a series that was cancelled after one season.
According to reports, the upcoming reboot hails from Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw production company, alongside Marco Ramirez (The Defenders, Daredevil, Sons of Anarchy) who is set to pen the script and serve as showrunner. The project follows CBS All Access’ successful revival of Star Trek: Discovery which gained a record amount of subscriptions for the streaming platform.
