Jordan Peele to narrate the new Twilight Zone, see first teaser

Jordan Peele

In the upcoming Twilight Zone reboot, however, there's a new voice inviting audiences to experience a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as time - showrunner Jordan Peele.

Peele is taking on the role that Rod Serling played in the original Twilight Zone.

Peele - who took home the best screenwriting Oscar for his directorial debut 2017's Get Out - was already on board as an executive producer of the reboot.

Now we've learned, via Variety, that Peele will not only be producing The Twilight Zone, but hosting and narrating it as well. Now the resistance is gone. In the clip of the host announcement below, you'll hear a mix of Serling and Peele's voices doing the iconic opening intro. It perfectly signals that Peele is stepping into Serling's shoes, in more ways than one.

The Twilight Zone initially ran on CBS from 1959 and 1964. "Because it's a show that has always helped us look at ourselves, hold a mirror up to society".

In practice, to allow for parliamentary ratification, that means a deal must be struck in the next couple of months. Jean-Claude Juncker, who heads the EU Commission, is one of the leaders whom May failed to impress.

This is very exciting.

CBS announced past year that it would revive The Twilight Zone for streaming service CBS All Access with Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Films.

"Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours", Peele stated.

Every episode of the original series is available to stream now on CBS All Access.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, production on The Twilight Zone will begin this fall for a 2019 premiere.
