Actor-director Jordan Peele will host (and presumably narrate) the new Twilight Zone TV show. He confirmed this in a new video that begins with original host Rod Serling’s voice before morphing into Peele’s. Serling wrote and hosted the original Twilight Zone TV show, and he leaves enormous shoes to fill.
Peele is also producing the new Twilight Zone TV show, which will premiere on CBS All Access in 2019. You can check out the eerie first teaser in the video embed above.
Sons of Anarchy and Daredevil writer Marco Ramirez is attached to write the script and lead the show as its showrunner.
The Emmy-winning show originally ran from 1959-1964, before being revived in the 1980s and early 2000s; there was also a movie. The Twilight Zone rights at held by CBS, which owns GameSpot.
While we now have some more details about the new Twilight Zone, that’s about all we know. There is word as of yet as to who will star in the show, or if it will be an anthology series like the original.
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.
