Here’s your biggest preview yet of the upcoming revival series.
By Chris Morse
Fresh off the release of the first two full episode trailers for the series, CBS All Access has revealed an extended full trailer for The Twilight Zone ahead of its April 1st debut. This latest video offers a closer look at more of the show’s episodes and what’s in store for viewers later in this first season. We have already had a good look at two of the early episodes starring Kumail Nanjiani and Adam Scott, but this new trailer showcases a bit more of the revival series’ star-studded lineup.
To recap what we previously learned from the first two episode trailers, Nanjiani’s “The Comedian” also stars Tracy Morgan (30 Rock, Cop Out) and follows an aspiring comedian who trades away more than he realizes in exchange for success on the stage. Scott will appear in “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet,” which appears to be a spiritual successor to the classic original series story of a similar name and tells the tale of a man who takes a flight and finds himself getting more and more paranoid as the trip goes on.
The series’ overall cast includes 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), Percy Hynes-White (The Gifted), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, Deadpool 2), Betty Gabriel (Get Out, The Purge: Election Year), Chris O’Dowd (Get Shorty, Bridesmaids), and Amy Landecker (Transparent, Doctor Strange).
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.
