This past summer, it was revealed that Warner Bros. had hired a writer to work on a new Twilight Zone movie, and now a reboot of the seminal anthology series is reportedly in the works for the small screen, too.
According to THR, CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves revealed today that the streaming service CBS All Access is preparing a reboot of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone. There's no word yet if the series is actually moving forward of if it is just in the early stages of development, but THR believes that Get Out director Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions is behind the new Twilight Zone, and that Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Netflix's Daredevil) is lined up to write the new take on the series and be the showrunner.
CBS All Access has not confirmed Peele or Ramirez being involved with the new Twilight Zone, however, so we'll have to wait and see who will cross over into the realm of Rod Serling's thought-provoking and otherworldly stories this time around (in an era when anthology series have been on the rise).
Bryan Singer had previously been developing a Twilight Zone revival in 2012, following their 1980s reboot and the 2002 revival on UPN (as well as the 1983 anthology film from Warner Bros.). Hosted by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone originally aired from 1959–1964 for a total of 156 episodes, many of which have aired regularly in reruns over the years, introducing new generations to its seminal storytelling.
