AFI FEST 2017 - Filmmakers' Photo CallJordan Peele is moving to "The Twilight Zone."

CBS All-Access has officially ordered a revival of the classic sci-fi anthology series from the writer/director of "Get Out," who will executive-produce along with "X-Men" writer Simon Kinberg and "The Defenders" creator Marco Ramirez.

"Too many times this year it's felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can't think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences," Peele said in a statement.

The original "Twilight Zone" was created by Rod Serling, and ran on CBS from 1959 to 1964. Reruns through the years increased its fanbase. Two revivals followed — the first on CBS from 1985 to 1989 and the second, short-lived one on UPN in 2002. There was also a 1983 feature film produced by Steven Spielberg, as well as various games, comic books, and novelizations.

This third revival comes at a time when anthology series are trendy again. In many ways, Netflix's "Black Mirror," which debuts its fourth season on December 29, is a descendent of "Twilight Zone."

It's unclear how many episodes the new "Twilight Zone" will have, nor when they will stream on CBS All-Access.
