The cast of the upcoming revival of The Twilight Zone continues to grow as more stars come on board for another episode of the anthology series. After a momentarily jarring Super Bowl ad that served as a great teaser for the new series, it is business as usual over at CBS All Access as the latest casting details trickle out for another episode titled “Point of Origin.”

Deadline has reported that Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time) is set to star in the episode, which will also feature James Frain (Star Trek: Discovery, Gotham, True Detective) and Zabryna Guevara (The Rebound, Gotham). No character or story details have been revealed for the episode at this time.


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.
