The Twilight Zone reboot gets CBS All Access greenlight

USA television channel CBS has announced it will resurrect the science-fiction series, in a bid to boost its subscription-based streaming platform CBS All Access. Simon Kinberg added his thoughts by declaring, "The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life". 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.

Jordan Peele made quite the splash in polemical social horror with his brilliantly conceived and executed blockbuster Get Out. The director will undoubtedly take the same approach with this reboot.

Details on the project are slim at this time, but CBS states that it has tapped Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg, and Marco Ramirez as executive producers for the show.

CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network's digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced the latest addition to its original programming slate, THE TWILIGHT ZONE.

The original series also featured some of the biggest genre writers of the era, including Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Charles Beaumont, and George Clayton Johnson.

This isn't the first time the show has been revived either. It became a feature film that was produced by Steven Spielberg in 1983 with segments directed by Spielberg, George Miller, Joe Dante and John Landis, ultimately leading to a three season revival in the 80s. A new series was greenlit in 1984 and ran from 1985 to 1989. The second reboot, starring Forest Whitaker, premiered on UPN from 2002 to 2003. It lasted only one season. We'll update this article as soon as we hear more.
