Besides Game of Thrones, this April will mark the premiere of Jordan Peele’s reboot for The Twilight Zone. For months we’ve been getting teasers for the show, but now we have a full trailer for the first season.
Check it out:
What’s very interesting about the show is its choice of actors. Peele had made a name for himself with comedy, but reinvented his genre when he directed Get Out. If you look at the actors for The Twilight Zone, you’ll see that a lot of them have their roots in comedy. It’s kind of weird to see the likes of Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), and Tracy Morgan (30 Rock) working on a series that looks so dark.
Going back to the actual show though, a lot of the shots feel like the films that Peele himself has directed. It even makes use of the same kind of ominous music from Get Out and the trailer for Us. If anyting, CBS scored a homerun when they decided to have Peele attached to this reboot as an executive producer.
For now, I’m just excited to see what’s in store for this show. With Black Mirror still holding out on its fifth season, a lot of fans are waiting on some dark anthology show to get into.
Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone reboot comes out April 1 on CBS Access.
