Jordan Peele shares a nostalgic yet new tease for The Twilight Zone series

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Acclaimed filmmaker Jordan Peele (GET OUT, US) has recently escaped the fifth dimension long enough to share a new teaser video via his personal Twitter account for the upcoming reboot of Rod Serling's THE TWILIGHT ZONE. In addition to executive producing the show by way of his Monkeypay Productions banner in association with CBS Television Studios and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films, it's been confirmed that Peele will also serve as the program's host and narrator.

You can take a look Peel's tweet for yourself below:

How cool is this teaser? Personally, I'm really digging the new graphics, and how the video features a mash-up of both Serling's iconic voice as well as Peele's, as they welcome viewers into the fold. THE TWILIGHT ZONE was created by screenwriter, playwright, television producer and narrator Rod Serling, and ran for five seasons from 1959 to 1964 on CBS. Throughout the years, Serling's anthology-style program presented fans with otherworldly cautionary tales about the hubris of man, as well as the strange and bizarre phenomena that observe from the stars above. While Peele's version of THE TWILIGHT ZONE is expected to have a more modern take on Serling's themes, the program will no doubt continue the tradition of exposing cracks in the human condition in addition to hosting a series of fantastical creatures, menacing locales, and a limited use of superpowers.

“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours,” said Peele in a statement. “I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone.”

THE TWILIGHT ZONE is expected to arrive on CBS All Access in 2019. Do you think the show will be presented in black and white? I sure as hell hope so.
