Goodwin, Frain, and Guevara star in an episode of The Twilight Zone

Star Trek: Discovery James Frain

A very cool trailer for the upcoming CBS All Access reboot of the classic anthology series The Twilight Zone was released online yesterday (it's also embedded at the bottom of this article), and around the same time I realized that some casting news had slipped under my radar earlier this month.

This version of The Twilight Zone has been quite secretive (which is for the best), but this casting news is a little bit of information about one of the ten episodes that will make up the revival's first season: Ginnifer Goodwin of Once Upon a Time, James Frain of Star Trek: Discovery (pictured above), and Zabryna Guevara of Gotham are all in the cast of an episode titled Point of Origin.

What is Point of Origin about? That's still a mystery, but at least we know who stars in it.

Here's what we know about the rest of the season: Sanaa Lathan is in an episode titled Rewind, Adam Scott stars in Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, a remake of the classic Twilight Zone story Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (and judging by the trailer, this one goes in a very different direction than its 20,000 Feet predecessors); Jacob Tremblay, Erica Tremblay, John Cho, and Allison Tolman are in an episode called The Wunderkind, about a child President; Steven Yeun and Greg Kinnear star in an episode called The Traveler, which is about two cops and a mysterious traveler (Yeun being the traveler in question); and Kumail Nanjiani is in an unspecified episode (he seems quite distressed in the trailer). DeWanda Wise, Jessica Williams, Lucinda Dryzek, Jefferson White, and Jonathan Whitesell make up the cast of another unspecified episode, and yet another stars Taissa Farmiga, Rhea Seehorn, Luke Kirby, Ike Barinholtz, and Percy Hynes-White.

An episode called Last Shuttle will tell us about 

a group of astronauts dealing with a crisis.

GET OUT writer/director Jordan Peele is the host and narrator of this new version of The Twilight Zone, which is produced by his company Monkeypaw, Simon Kinberg's Genre Films, and CBS Television Studios. Peele and Kinberg serve as executive producers alongside Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Rick Berg, Marco Ramirez, Greg Yaitanes, and Carol Serling.

At least one of the episodes was directed by THE FIRST PURGE's Gerard McMurray.

The Twilight Zone will premiere on CBS All Access on April 1st. Two episodes will be released on that date, with the remaining eight being released weekly on Thursdays.
