The idea of a Twilight Zone reboot may not be appealing to most audiences, who tend to grow weary of reboots, and the fact that it’ll be with the service CBS All Access may alienate them even more.

However, THR is now saying that Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw banner is developing the show, with The Defenders showrunner Marco Ramirez penning the script and serving as showrunner.

While we’re still bitter at the fact that they’re restricting it to CBS All Access, the talent they have in place is promising. Admittedly, I’d be a bit more interested if Peele was developing it himself (Get Out was basically an extended Twilight Zone episode, anyways), but Ramirez’s involvement is still huge. Between his work on Sons of Anarchy, Daredevil, and The Defenders, the man certainly knows his way around the TV screen.

As of this writing, it’s not clear whether or not the series has a season commitment or a pilot commitment, but we’re sure that’ll come with an official announcement.

This news comes not so long after it’s been confirmed that CBS All Access’ flagship series, Star Trek: Discovery, would be getting a second season. It very much seems like they’ve had a taste of success and are pushing for more.

    ugh….. still doing the CBS All Access with big names? There’s something serious wrong with CBS dumping all their geeky stuff onto their experimental service when they own 500 other channels to put it on: MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, Logo, CMT, VH1, TV Land, BET, ….. and I’m not going to go into the channels within channels.

    The scramble is on to try and get more shows for this failed streaming service as STD is going down in flames and they know it will not hold viewers much longer no matter how many seasons they air.

    Some things I’d like to see:

    1) Try to keep it black and white, save for the occasional episode that uses colour really well.
    2) Although a mixed bag, the ’80s Twilight Zone did have the right idea by having the stories be varying lengths. They didn’t have to fit within a 30-minute or hour-long timeslot. Many episodes contained multiple stories. This freeness with time is something I’d like to see in the new show, and given that it’s on a streaming service, they could probably get away with it.
    3) I realize that a black and white TV show nowadays is highly unlikely to happen. That said, I love the atmosphere black and white brings and it worked well in the original series.
