After a quick tease disguised as a Super Bowl commercial, we now have a proper trailer for Jordan Peele's reboot of The Twilight Zone. The perfect choice to take up the mantle of this legendary sci-fi thriller, Peele excels at paranormal creepy shit that looks normal, but ... but ... something feels wrong. This preview provides a glimpse into the first few moments of the ten-episode first season and showcases both a revolving all-star cast and Peele himself as host. There are a lot of well-chosen nods to the classic series. That spine-tingling theme music? It's there but made even more ominous with a modern staccato riff. The all new Twilight Zone will begin streaming on CBS All Access on April 1, with two back-to-back episodes.
Rod Serling, who developed the show in the late 1950s, thought the sci-fi approach would give him more freedom and less interference in expressing controversial ideas than more realistic settings.
