Actor and director Jordan Peele is going to introduce a new generation of viewers to the classic television anthology program The Twilight Zone with his reboot set to premiere with two brand new episodes on April 1st exclusively on CBS All Access. Peele will serve as the episodic host and executive producer of the new series. He will succeed taking over the dual role that was once fulfilled by the program’s original creator, Rod Serling, during the program’s original television run from 1959 to 1964 on CBS.

Celebrity actors who have already signed up to appear in the weekly episodes include: John Cho, Taissa Farmiga, Greg Kinnear, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Steven Yeun, and numerous others.

After the first two episodes are released on April 1st, there will be one new episode released through the streaming service every Thursday beginning on April 11th.

As of January 30th, the original series can be streamed on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video (limited amount of seasons available), CBS All Access (paywall), and quite frequently over the holiday weekends throughout the year on the SyFy channel in marathon / binge-watching form.
