Key to the reboots is having the original producers attached, which would be CBS Television Studios in the case of The Twilight Zone.

In November we reported on the Twilight Zone Reboot with Jordan Peel and Marco Ramirez producing the series, well CBS has officially gotten the green light! While the reboot was first teased by CBS Corp.

The original "Twilight Zone" ran for five years on CBS, from 1959 to 1964.

Jordan Peele made quite the splash in polemical social horror with his brilliantly conceived and executed blockbuster Get Out.

This reboot won't just be some half-assed take though.

Peele will serve as executive producer on this third revival, alongside writer-producer Simon Kinberg, who is best known for his work on the X-Men film franchise. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone. In the world of The Twilight Zone, even the nicest of towns were no longer safe from the curiosities of this cruel alternate dimension. Simon Kinberg's Genre Films will also be associated with the production. It won two Emmys, and Serling won a Golden Globe.

You'll need a CBS All Access subscription to watch the show; rather than through cable, you'll get access to the episodes over the Internet through the streaming platform.

It also spawned 1983's Twilight Zone: The Movie, which is tragically remembered for the deaths of actor Vic Morrow, and child stars Renee Chen and Myca Dinh Le, in an on-set accident in Santa Clarita, California in July of 1982. A new series was greenlit in 1984 and ran from 1985 to 1989. CBS has yet to announce a release date, casting, or an episode count. We'll update this article as soon as we hear more.
