Extended 'Twilight Zone' Trailer Gives a Chilling Deep Look into Jordan Peele's Mind
This is Jordan Peele's world and we're (gladly) just living in it.
The Oscar winner is riding high on the huge success of his second feature, "Us." And now, he's about to present his reboot of "The Twilight Zone," which debuts April 1 on CBS All-Access. April Fool's indeed.
Peele serves as the executive producer and narrator of the reboot, much like Rod Serling did for the seminal sci-fi/fantasy/horror/thriller series that first ran from 1959 to 1964.
The new trailer features a bunch of chilling new footage, with flashes of some of the later episodes we haven't seen yet. Most of the characters look anxious or panicked, as they confront strange occurrences, suffer from paranoia, and generally feel like reality is getting warped.
As one character says, "When the world is trying to tell you something, it will repeat itself until you get it."
The series consists of 10 episodes and boasts an all-star cast including:
Ike Barinholtz, John Cho, Taissa Farmiga, Ginnifer Goodwin, Greg Kinnear, Sanaa Lathan, Tracy Morgan, Kumail Nanjiani, Seth Rogen, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Jessica Williams and Steven Yeun.
"Twilight Zone" premieres April 1 with two episodes. After that the anthology will air weekly Thursdays starting April 11 on CBS All-Access.
