Here's the Extended Super Bowl Commercial for The Twilight Zone Revival
Jordan Peele turned the Super Bowl into an empty space.

Earlier this evening, Jordan Peele brought the Super Bowl to a grinding halt, momentarily at least, in a new ad for the upcoming revival of The Twilight Zone on CBS All Access. Although the new promo did not show any episode footage, it was a quick tease that offered a few very familiar elements to fans of the original Rod Serling series, such as the music and narration. If that wasn't enough, CBS also released an extended cut of the teaser online for all to enjoy, which is available for you to watch above.
The series recently added Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story, The Nun), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Luke Kirby (The Deuce), Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad), and Percy Hynes-White (The Gifted) for its seventh episode, further bolstering its growing list of prominent names who have come on board so far.
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 on April 1st, 2019 with production on its 10-episode first season still underway. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest on this show.
