Steven Yeun The Walking Dead

A new season of the anthology series The Twilight Zone is now in production, with GET OUT writer/director Jordan Peele hosting and narrating the episodes. As episodes are filmed and casts are assembled, small details have been revealed: Sanaa Lathan is known to be starring in an episode titled Rewind; Adam Scott is taking over from William Shatner and John Lithgow in Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, a remake of the classic tale Nightmare at 20,000 Feet; Jacob Tremblay, Erica Tremblay, John Cho, and Allison Tolman are in an episode called The Wunderkind, which is about a child President. Kumail Nanjiani turns up in an episode somewhere along the way... And now a new casting announcement has revealed the title of a couple more episodes.

Steven Yeun, an actor best known for playing the role of Glenn Rhee on AMC's The Walking Dead, has signed on to play the title character in a Twilight Zone episode called The Traveler, which is about 

two cops and a mysterious traveler.

Another episode that's in the works but doesn't have a cast yet is called Last Shuttle and is about 

a group of astronauts dealing with a crisis.

Peele's production company Monkeypaw is producing The Twilight Zone with Simon Kinberg's Genre Films and CBS Television Studios. Peele and Kinberg are executive producing with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Rick Berg, Marco Ramirez, Greg Yaitanes, and Carol Serling.

This new season will consist of 10 episodes, and it's sounding really promising now that we know a little bit about half of the line-up.
