With the Jordan Peele-produced return of The Twilight Zone having aired five episodes now in the US, the series has already been picked up for a second season.
CBS All Access are clearly impressed by the series, and they’ve now made the call to renew the show for a second year.
On this news, CBS’ Julie McNamara enthused, “Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s reimagining of The Twilight Zone is off to an amazing start on CBS All Access, driving the most viewers on its premiere day for an original series to date. Jordan, Simon, the creative team and cast have done a phenomenal job translating the series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling for modern-day audiences. They are master storytellers, and we look forward to bringing fans further into The Twilight Zone with a second season.”
At this point, The Twilight Zone has frustratingly yet to be given a UK home, but hopefully UK audiences will be able to check out the show sooner rather than later.
