  • CBS All Access officially orders Twilight Zone reboot

Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone is officially on its way.

CBS announced today that Jordan Peele (Key & Peele, Get Out), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Marco Ramirez (Netflix's Defenders) will produce a new series based on the classic horror series from the early '60s.

Peele seems like the ideal choice, who's social thriller Get Out already feels like a Twilight Zone episode.Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon will executive produce, while Peele, Kinberg, and Ramirez will "collaborate on the premiere episode".

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

The original "Twilight Zone", created by Rod Serling, was an anthology series that delved into science fiction, fantasy, and horror in every episode.

There are few details on this "modern reimagining", but it's hard to think of a better producer than Peele, who's in the thick of awards season with his social thriller Get Out. Since then, the series was brought back in 1986 for 110 episodes and in 2002 for 43 episodes. The franchise has also been licensed to a new stage play set to premiere in December at the Almeida Theatre in London and run through January. CBS calls its landmark show "the godfather of sci-fi", and it plans to reimagine the series for a modern audience.

First broadcast in 1959, "The Twilight Zone" was a pioneer in television drama, known for its suspenseful music composed by French-Romanian Marius Constant and the black-and-white spiral of the credits. In a crowded landscape of almost 500 scripted shows, individual episodic anthologies are easier to consume. "Twilight Zone: The Movie" came out in 1983. Ramirez is repped by UTA.
