Everything you need to know about the Jordan Peele produced and narrated reboot.
Now on its third revival since the 1959 original series began, by this point in time The Twilight Zone is already about as deeply embedded in popular culture as it’s possible to be. Cropping up in everything from The Simpsons, to Twiglets adverts, to Bridesmaids and The Gilmore Girls, some references are more subtle than others — but, whether you catch them at first glance or not, they’re everywhere.
Now — riding the wave of deserved success from his powerfully uncanny, 2018 Oscar-winning directorial debut Get Out, with the equally horrifying-looking Us on the way, and having already more than proved his chops in off-kilter humour as one half of Key and Peele — writer, director, comedian, and actor Jordan Peele is set to take the Twilight Zone helm. And, with all that in mind, it’s hard to think of a better choice.
So, with the show having already been teased and the first film trailer having now made its debut, we’ve collected all the information available on Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone — from cast and crew to when and where to watch. And remember to keep checking back as we’ll update this post with new details whenever we have them.
