Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg Team for New 'Twilight Zone' Series

CBS All Access officially orders Twilight Zone reboot

Following the stellar Star Trek Discovery series, now the CBS All Access digital streaming service has green lit a new Twilight Zone series.

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

A Twilight Zone TV series reboot is on the way, but it won't be on the airwaves.

Hopefully, CBS will at least air the Twilight Zone pilot on primetime, as they did with Discovery, giving fans a chance to sample the show before they buy in.

The series had no regular characters: each episode was instead a standalone exploration of fantasy, science-fiction, psychology and metaphysics, with dramatic tension always at the forefront.

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".

Peele, Kinberg, and Ramirez will "collaborate on the premiere episode", and Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon will also executive produce. CBS announced the news today, saying the reboot will be produced by its CBS Television Studios alongside Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions.

Jordan Peele's next stop.is in The Twilight Zone.

"Kinberg, who is known for his work on the "X-Men" film franchise and "Sherlock Holmes" said, "'The Twilight Zone' was a touchstone in my life.

CBS All Access has ordered a full series.

The Twilight Zone revival arrives as individual episodic anthologies have become increasingly popular following shows like Netflix's Black Mirror, HBO's Room 104 and TBS' The Guest Book. However, Peele says that the show has a special relevance now.
