CBS All Access has just released the first full trailer for Jordan Peele’s highly anticipated The Twilight Zone. It will give you the first real look at the stories that will be told in the first season. It actually looks like it’s going to be pretty good!
As you’ll see, they’ve made some significant modifications to some of the original episodes that are being remade. There are also a few little Easter eggs to keep a look out for as you watch the trailer because there are some things that you’ll remember.
The new series is described as an anthology that will tell self-contained stories in every episode. Also, like its predecessors, it will lean on science fiction, fantasy, and horror to tell tales laced with social commentary.
Jordan Peele will host the series, and as for the cast of the episodes, Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) and Greg Kinnear (As Good as it Gets), who are both set to appear in an episode titled “The Traveler.” John Cho (Star Trek), Allison Tolman (Fargo), and Jacob Tremblay (Room, Wonder) will star in an episode called “The Wunderkind.” Ginnifer Goodwin, James Frain, and Zabryna Guevara will star in “Point of Origin.”
Some of the other cast members include Sanaa Lathan, Adam Scott, Kumail Nanjiani, DeWanda Wise, Taissa Farmiga (The Nun), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Luke Kirby (The Deuce), Ike Barinholtz, and Jessica Williams (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) are all starring in other episodes of The Twilight Zone.
The other episodes we know of so far that will be included in the series are “Nightmare At 30,000 Feet,” “Nick of Time,” and “Rewind.”
