The Twilight Zone: CBS to Revive Iconic Sci-Fi Series via All Access

The Twilight Zone: CBS to Revive Iconic Sci-Fi Series via All Access The Twilight Zone: CBS to Revive Iconic Sci-Fi Series via All Access

CBS's trend of rebooting iconic TV series is continuing. Peele's mix of horror and social commentary had subtle echoes of the old-school horror Rod Serling used to offer up on The Twilight Zone, and, it turns out, CBS noticed that too.

CBS All Access is the network's subscription-based streaming service, which is the home to Star Trek: Discovery, The Good Fight, and more.

Jordan Peele is rumored to be attached to the reboot as writer and showrunner. The anthology series often channeled Cold War paranoia for its various horror, science fiction and supernatural stories, and became famed for its sometimes shocking final-act twists.

This won't be the first time that CBS has attempted or even managed to bring "The Twilight Zone" back to the small screen, but with the anthology format becoming more embraced by current shows like "Black Mirror" and "Room 104", it only makes sense for a reboot to become a possibility again.

Sources say the show hails from Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw banner, with Marco Ramirez (Netflix Marvel dramas The Defenders and Daredevil, Sons of Anarchy) is set to pen the script and serve as showrunner. Peele is also working on a Nazi-hunting TV show. Like Peele, Serling wanted Twilight Zone to do more than just scare people, and many of its best-remembered episodes are those that succeeded in taking the temperature of early-'60s America while also delivering chills and thrills. CBS All Access declined comment on Peele and Ramirez's involvement as official details have not yet been announced beyond Moonves' initial announcement.

Many famous actors appeared on the first iteration of The Twilight Zone, including Ed Wynn, William Shatner, Cloris Leachman, Don Rickles, and Robert Duvall, among many others.
