You may now enter The Twilight Zone! The beloved classic series has been handed a series order with Jordan Peele (Get Out) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men) leading the way.

The reboot will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Kinberg’s Genre Films for the subscription video on demand service CBS All Access. Peele, Kinberg and Marco Ramirez (The Defenders) will executively produce the series and collaborate on the premiere episode.

Peele went on to say:

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,

Kinberg added:

The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life. The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and I’m so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team at CBS All Access.

The original Twilight Zone series aired from 1959-1964 with creator Rod Serling lending his signature voice as narrator. The series blended sci-fi, horror and fantasy together and grew to be an all-time classic. The series spawned Twilight Zone: The Movie in 1983 and starred Dan Aykroyd, Scatman Crothers, Kathleen Quinlan, John Lithgow and Vic Morrow. Morrow along with two children were killed on set when a helicopter landed on top of them during a Vietnam scene. The series was revived one more time in 2002 and only lasted one season.

An episode count nor a release date have been released.
