New Twilight Zone TV Show Reveals Its Host And First Teaser

The Twilight Zone TV show on CBS All Access

The original "The Twilight Zone" took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind.

Step aside, Rod Serling: Jordan Peele will serve as host and narrator of CBS All Access' upcoming revival of the classic sci-fi/horror anthology The Twilight Zone, TVLine has learned. Peele certainly has some big shoes to fill - no one can replace original host Rod Serling, after all - but if anyone's up to the challenge, it's him. The above teaser pays homage to the original series, featuring a mix of both Serling and Peele voicing the iconic opening narration.

The Twilight Zone initially ran on CBS from 1959 and 1964.

The Twilight Zone is set to begin production this fall and is slated to premiere on CBS All Access in 2019. With Get Out, Peele announced himself as a storyteller who could deftly blend horror and social commentary - something The Twilight Zone did perfectly in its original incarnation.

"Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours", Peele shared of his new duties with The Hollywood Reporter.

"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", Peele said in a statement when his involvement with the show was first announced. The Oscar-winning director will also reportedly executive produce the show's relaunch.
