Another round of stars has reportedly signed on for the upcoming Jordan Peele hosted reboot of The Twilight Zone and headlining the new additions is American Horror Story regular Taissa Farmiga. The actress also entered The Conjuring film universe with a role in The Nun, making her no stranger to horror and the surreal as CBS aims to revitalize the classic anthology series on its All-Access streaming platform.

In addition to the above report, Deadline also announced that Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Luke Kirby (The Deuce), Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad), and Percy Hynes-White (The Gifted) are on board for the same episode that Farmiga will be a part of, which is currently listed as the seventh episode of the upcoming revival’s first season.

Other stars who have been confirmed so far are Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Burning), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine, As Good as It Gets), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick, Silicon Valley), Sanaa Lathan (Something New, AVP: Alien vs. Predator, Nip/Tuck), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies, Krampus), John Cho (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Star Trek films), Allison Tolman (Krampus, The Gift), Jacob Tremblay (Before I Wake, The Book of Henry), Jessica Williams (The Incredible Jessica James, Hot Tub Time Machine 2), and DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It, Shots Fired).

Jordan Peele is executive producing this reboot for the CBS All Access streaming platform and will also serve as the show's host, filling the shoes of the legendary Rod Serling, who created the original series back in 1959, a role he is not taking lightly.

The Twilight Zone is set to premiere sometime in 2019 as production on its 10-episode first season is underway. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest on this show.
