If your one complaint about Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone is that it’s not available to watch in black and white, well, that’s about to be fixed. The show will be streaming in this format on CBS All Access starting May 30th. Regarding the decision to have this option available, Peele’s response was simply, “Cause… come on.”

What a fabulous way to pay tribute Rod Sterling’s original series, which was shown in black and white during its five-year run. Have a look above for the Season 1 trailer in all its black and white glory.

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 seven episodes are streaming now with a new one arriving each Thursday. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest on this series.
