It’s pretty safe to say the first season of Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone fared better than other attempts to revive Rod Serling’s iconic genre series. Using the cred he built through Get Out and Us, Peele enlisted a number of today’s top filmmakers and stars to escort audiences into the weird world of the paranormal, and now he’s back and doing the same for season two.
Today being National Twilight Zone Day (f’real, that’s a real thing), the timing couldn’t be better for a tease of the show’s return. Directors including Ana Lily Amirpour (The Bad Batch) and Oz Perkins (Gretel & Hansel) will join an incredible cast featuring Morena Baccarin, Kylie Bunbury, Jenna Elfman, Ethan Embry, Sky Ferreira, Tavi Gevinson, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, Gillian Jacobs, David Krumholtz, Thomas Lennon, Sophia Macy, Natalie Martinez, Joel McHale, Chris Meloni, Gretchen Mol, Paula Newsome, Billy Porter, Jimmi Simpson, Jurnee Smollett, Daniel Sunjata, and Damon Wayans, Jr.
The series is exclusive to CBS All-Access, so if you want in you’ll have to subscribe or pray for a free trial. All 10 episodes will debut on June 25th.
SYNOPSIS: “The series’ second season uses introspection and self-exploration to usher viewers into a dimension filled with endless possibilities.”
