We were all GEEKED during the ‘Super Bowl’ when found out that Academy Award-winning director Jordan Peele had signed on to do a ‘Twilight Zone’ reboot, right? Now we are EVEN more STOKED that a FULL LENGTH trailer for the CBS Access series is here and let’s just say the STARS that will appear in this new THRILLER SERIES could even make Rod Serling from the ORIGINAL ‘Zone’ smile.
The trailer gives us flashes of just about everyone from the stacked cast list, including Kumail Nanjiani, John Cho, Sanaa Lathan, Allison Tolman, Tracey Morgan Taissa Farmiga, and Adam Scott, who’s set to fill William Shatner’s shoes in the remake of the classic Twilight Zone episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.” And, of course, Jordan Peele bringing an ALL NEW TYPE of creepiness as Rod Serling.
There are quick nods to other classic episodes, too: The creature that haunts Shatner shows up as a doll washing ashore in Adam Scott’s episode, the devil fortune teller from “Nick of Time ” makes an appearance, and MORE. If it comes from the BRILLIANT mind of Peele, you won’t want to miss a SECOND!
The first two episodes of Twilight Zone premiere on CBS All Access April 1!!
