Jordan Peele to Reboot 'Twilight Zone' for CBS All Access

"Too many times this year it's felt we were living in a twilight zone", he said.

Peele and Simon Kinberg are about to enter a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

CBS All Access subscribers can watch anything that CBS has to offer, like local market National Football League games, and exclusive All Access shows like "Star Trek: Discovery" and the newest addition to the lineup: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer". CBS Television Studios produces the reboot. Peele, Kinberg and Marco Ramirez will be executive producers, along with Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon.

Jordan Peele made quite the splash in polemical social horror with his brilliantly conceived and executed blockbuster Get Out. However none of these managed to come to fruition, instead CBS seems to have found how they want to move forward.

The story began to pick up steam when Tennessee appeared to have hired Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano . Pruitt's success this season is particularly impressive given how hard Alabama's defense has been hit by injuries.

The Twilight Zone began airing in 1959, finishing out in 1964 with a total of 156 episodes. CBS has yet to announce a release date, casting, or any other writers attached to the project.

CBS All Access has seen quite a bit of success over the past six months with the launch of 'Star Trek: Discovery' to fanfare and critical success alike. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone.

This is not the first time that a remake of The Twilight Zone has been discussed. CBS announced today that it has issued a series order for a revival of "The Twilight Zone" from Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Films for its All Access streaming service.

It's the third TV reboot for the famed sci-fi franchise, which was brought back for a 65-episode run from 1985 and 1989, and a 44-episode run from 2002 until 2003. Serling wrote nearly two-thirds of the scripts himself.
