CBS All Access has officially ordered another season of The Twilight Zone. The revival series is off to a strong start after its first five episodes and we learned today that Season 2 has officially been given the green light. The streaming platform’s executive vice president of original content, Julie McNamara, had the following to say in a statement paired with the renewal announcement.

Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s reimagining of The Twilight Zone is off to an amazing start on CBS All Access, driving the most viewers on its premiere day for an original series to date.

Jordan, Simon, the creative team and cast have done a phenomenal job translating the series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling for modern-day audiences. They are master storytellers, and we look forward to bringing fans further into The Twilight Zone with a second season.

Jordan Peele executive produces 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. Following a strung debut, the series has already been renewed for a second season.

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.
