How relevant is The Twilight Zone now?
A Twilight Zone theater adaptation in London and a planned CBS All Access revival from Jordan Peele are aiming to capitalize on the relevance of the Rod Serling classic to modern times. “There are countless entries in Rod Serling’s groundbreaking anthology sci-fi series that seem constructed for the 21st-century world, which is presumably why there are so many ongoing efforts to reboot it,” says Sophie Gilbert. She adds: “The question is, can the show still resonate with audiences hardened by the crueler speculative stories of Black Mirror and the more intense paranoia of The X-Files? The paradox of The Twilight Zone now is that it’s steeped in nostalgia and tied up with longing for a simpler time, even though no television show has more expressly warned against the impulse of yearning for the past.”

CBS All Access officially orders Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone reboot
Peele will be among a trio of producers with genre experience on the reboot, joining The Defenders’ Marco Ramirez and The X-Men franchise’s Simon Kinberg. “Too many times this year it’s felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can’t think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,” says Peele. CBS All Access’ Julie McNamara adds that “with the creative freedom that the CBS All Access platform affords, this is an incredible opportunity to bring today’s audiences a modern reimagining of this iconic series.”
