CBS All Access officially orders Twilight Zone reboot

Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez are also listed as executive producers.

According to a press release from CBS earlier this week, Jordan Peele is set to produce the remake of a beloved classic: The Twilight Zone.

The anthology series was created by Rod Serling and delved into topics of science fiction, horror, fantasy and mystery in episodes that could feel all too real at times. "The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and I'm so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team at CBS All Access", said Kinberg. An episode count and premiere date have not yet been determined.

Whistleblower: Flynn texts broached nuclear plan, sanctions
Flynn allegedly sent the messages to Alex Copson, managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners, a U.S. nuclear power consultancy. The memo was intended for Trump to sign, though there's no indication the President saw it, the Journal reported.

Right now, CBS All Access may only really have Star Trek: Discovery as their big ticket item, but that seems poised to change in the future.

First broadcast in 1959, The Twilight Zone was a pioneer in television drama, known for its suspenseful music composed by French-Romanian Marius Constant and the black-and-white spiral of the credits.

Today CBS All Access announced the reboot has been ordered for the series, meaning Jordan Peele and suspense fans alike are in for a treat.
