In the history of genre TV, few shows are as iconic as TheTwilight Zone, Rod Serling’s early exploration of mostly science fiction/fantasy short stories that were often somewhat heavy-handed morality plays depicted as taking place under unusual circumstances. Now, over fifty years later, we have CBS All Access’ revival of The Twilight Zone, which Jordan Peele is executive-producing through his Monkeypaw Productions alongside Marco Ramirez (Daredevil) and Simon Kinberg (Dark Phoenix). CBS released two new trailers for the upcoming anthology, which tease a pair of terrors starring Adam Scott and Kumail Nanjiani.

With the success of Peele’s ‘Us’ in theaters this past weekend, it only seems natural to wonder just what percentage of episodes in the new series will be horror stories and whether stories of that type will dominate the series content, or not. The answer is we do not know at this time.

The Twilight Zone will also feature John Cho, Ike Barinholtz, Taissa Farmiga, Alison Tolman, and Steven Yeun. In addition to executive-producing, Peele is taking over hosting duties. The Twilight Zone premieres on CBS All-Access on April 1.
