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.
