Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg 'Twilight Zone' Reboot Greenlit At CBS All Access

Peele, Kinberg and Ramirez will collaborage on the premiere episode. Even though that might be the case, there might not be anyone better suited to bring The Twilight Zone into the modern era than Jordan Peele. CBS Television Studios will produce the series in association with Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Kinberg's Genre Films. Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez are also listed as executive producers. He directed the hit film Get Out. However none of these managed to come to fruition, instead CBS seems to have found how they want to move forward. It originally ran in from 1959-1964 and remains a staple for many families during holiday seasons due to continued play on the SyFy channel and its timeless appeal.

"The original The Twilight Zone bridged science-fiction, horror and fantasy together to explore human nature and provide social commentary in a way that audiences had never seen before". No release date has been set and it's unclear if the reboot is going straight to series or is just in development.

Get Out director Jordan Peele is preparing to enter The Twilight Zone with a reboot series aimed at the CBS All Access streaming service. The network revived the series in the 1980s - it ran for three seasons and again in 2002 for a season on UPN with host Forest Whitaker. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone. Serling wrote nearly two-thirds of the scripts himself. In the world of The Twilight Zone, even the nicest of towns were no longer safe from the curiosities of this cruel alternate dimension.
