A new host and narrator
Not only is Jordan Peele a creative force behind-the-scenes, but he'll also be stepping into the shoes of Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling and appearing in each episode as our guide through the fifth dimension.
"Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours," said Peele of the show's originator. "I'm honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone."
