Digital Remake Of ‘The Twilight Zone’ With Jordan Peele Renewed For Second Season On CBS All Access
Jordan Peele’s remake of the iconic TV show The Twilight Zone is returning to CBS All Access for a second season, the streaming service announced this week. The news comes on the heels of a record-setting premiere by the show on April 1, which delivers a revamped anthology series with moden storytelling for a younger audience.
Given Jordan Peele’s popularity and the reception that The Twilight Zone received in its first season, CBS All Access is banking on the second season bringing an even wider viewership. The anthology series, which was brought back after the success of Netflix’s Black Mirror, sees each episode explore the human condition and holding a lens up to the culture of our times.
