A dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. A dimension of yet another reboot.
CBS has announced a new “Twilight Zone” anthology series, a reboot of the iconic TV show from the 50’s. It is set to stream on CBS All Access, its SVOD service that already features “Star Trek: Discovery”.
This announcement comes over 50 years after the original sci-fi series ended its initial run, and about five years after a failed reboot at the hands of “X-Men” director Bryan Singer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this time around it will be “Get Out” director Jordan Peele who will take on the project. There are few official details as of now. CBS All Access declined comment on Peele’s involvement, and it’s unclear whether this will be a straight-to-series order.
Jordan Peele found success with the acclaimed horror feature “Get Out”, which some have described as an African-American version of “The Twilight Zone”.
The original “Twilight Zone” was created by Rod Serling and ran on CBS from 1959-1964. It also led to a feature film, radio program, and several revivals.
After the release of “Get Out”, Jordan Peele has also programmed a series of social thrillers in the next few years. With his latest film, it’s clear that he’s not afraid to tackle social and political issues. Reactions to this news have ranged from excitement to outrage. However, we’re pretty excited to see what kind of stories Peele will bring to the Twilight Zone.
