The Twilight Zone, Jordan Peele

CBS All Access



Jordan Peele was already announced to be producing a revival of "The Twilight Zone," but now we know he'll be hosting and narrating as well. Just like Rod Serling.

The "Get Out" director's revival of the 1960s series will stream on CBS All Access in 2019.

Peele has such reverence for Serling's classic "The Twilight Zone" (as we all should), he included Serling's voice-over in the first teaser, blending the original narrator's voice with his own to show a smooth transition from Then to Now.

The first teaser just came out -- really just an "Official Host Announcement" revealing that producer Jordan Peele himself would be fully embracing the same role Rod Serling had in the original series.


Jordan Peele: "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.'"

As Collider noted, every episode of the original 1959-1964 series is available to stream now on CBS All Access.

The new "Twilight Zone" will start filming this fall for its premiere on CBS All Access at some point in 2019.
