Two more stars have been confirmed to be joining the upcoming CBS All Access revival of The Twilight Zone, which will make its debut in early April. According to Deadline, Zazie Beetz and Betty Gabriel will appear in an early episode of the series, joining a wide range of noteworthy actors and actresses who have been added so far.
Beetz is known for her recent work in FX’s Atlanta, playing the co-leading role of Vanessa, as well as for her appearance in Deadpool 2 as Domino. On the other hand, Gabriel is no stranger to working with Jordan Peele, as she played Georgina in the filmmaker’s debut hit, Get Out, and is also known for having a role in The Purge: Election Year. At this time, little is known about their characters in The Twilight Zone or what their episode will entail.
The series most recently added Seth Rogen (This is the End, Pineapple Express), Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time), Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story, The Nun), James Frain (Star Trek: Discovery, Gotham, True Detective), Zabryna Guevara (The Rebound, Gotham), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Luke Kirby (The Deuce), Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad), and Percy Hynes-White (The Gifted).
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 its first two episodes. Following that, a new episode will debut every Thursday starting on April 11th. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest news and updates on this series.
