Prepare to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. Your next stop is…do we even need to say it?
Following an eerie Super Bowl ad, CBS All Access has released the first official trailer for its upcoming reboot of The Twilight Zone, which will premiere April 1 on the streaming service. Along with plenty of shiver-inducing imagery (and audio), the trailer shows off a murderer’s row of actors, including John Cho, Adam Scott, Tracy Morgan, Kumail Nanjiani, Zabryna Guevara, Jacob Tremblay, Alison Tolman, and Steven Yeun, as well as host Jordan Peele (who says nothing, but gives the camera one heck of a stare).
The new show will presumably follow the template of the legendary original anthology series, which presented new standalone stories every week, often in the horror or sci-fi genres and featuring sly social commentary. And as fans of Get Out know, meshing genre storytelling with a socially relevant message is something Peele excels at.
The Twilight Zone debuts April 1 on CBS All Access with a two-episode premiere, followed by a new episode every week starting April 11. Check out the trailer above.
