By Chris Morse

Another new episode of The Twilight Zone is on its way next week and this one is finally giving us a bit of space travel. "Six Degrees of Freedom" will arrive on May 2nd and is a story of life-altering decisions and their consequences as a space crew prepares for the first human flight to Mars. Watch the trailer above.

"Six Degrees of Freedom" stars DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It, Shots Fired) and also features Jessica Williams (The Incredible Jessica James, Hot Tub Time Machine 2), Jefferson White, Lucinda Dryzek, and Jonathan Whitesell. This episode will be the sixth installment of the CBS All Access revival series, following John Cho's political tale, "The Wunderkind."

Jordan Peele is executive producing this reboot for the CBS All Access streaming platform and also serves 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's first five episodes are streaming now with a new one arriving each Thursday. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest on this series.
