Cable companies and their friends in the media love to pretend that you are missing out if you don’t have cable. However, when you consider all the original content on services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and others, it’s a ridiculous claim to say the least.
In fact, we can add one more soon to be hit show you won’t be able to see if you only have cable TV. Monday, April 1st, the much anticipated reboot of the Twilight Zone premiers on CBS All Access.
Twilight Zone Reboot Details
The new Twilight Zone is executive produced, narrated, and hosted by Academy Award winner Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us.) The first season will consist of 10 episodes and will appear exclusively on CBS All Access.
The April 1st premiere will consist of 2 episodes. The first is staring Adam Scott (Parks and Rec) is titled “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” which is an homage to the classic Twilight Zone episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” where a passenger is convinced they are in terrible danger on a plane.
We’ve been told all 10 episodes of the new 2019 Twilight Zone are original and will not remake any original Twilight Zone episodes. So, the title of this first episode is just a way to pay tribute to the original series.
The second episode premiering that same night is titled “The Comedian” and will star Tracey Morgan (SNL, 30 Rock) and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick.)
After the Monday premiere, new episodes will be released every Thursday starting April 11th through the rest of the initial 10 episode run.
Jordon Peele has already shown himself to be a master of the Horror and Suspense genre, so I’m sure the new Twilight Zone will not disappoint. You can check out the trailer of the first episode.
