CBS All Access has officially set Jordan Peele’s The Twlight Zone reboot for 2019.
Additionally, it has been made official that he will be the host and narrator.
“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours. I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone,” said Peele, who also serves as executive producer.
The iconic science-fiction series, narrated by Serling, originally ran on CBS from 1959-1964. There was a revival in the ’80s on CBS, and a short-lived one on UPN in 2002. There was a potential anthology reboot in 2012 to be directed by Bryan Singer as well.
It will begin production this fall for a 2019 premiere.
