A couple of weeks back, CBS CEO Les Moonves announced in an earnings call that the network was planning to bring back "The Twilight Zone" to the broadcaster's All Access streaming app. Peele, Kinberg and Ramirez will executive produce for the series and collaborate on the premiere episode.

The original "Twilight Zone" aired on CBS between 1959 and 1964 and was known for using seemingly fantastical tales to comment on the issues of the day, such as McCarthyism and the threat of nuclear war.

Given that Get Out often felt like a feature-length Twilight Zone episode, Peele will be a great fit for a show that blends sci-fi and social commentary.

The subscription video on demand service has handed out a series order for a Twilight Zone reboot from Jordan Peele (Get Out) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men).

In 1983, Steven Spielberg produced a film, Twilight Zone: The Movie, that starred Dan Aykroyd, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow. Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Kinberg's Genre Films will assist CBS Television Studios with production. "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". This marks the second high-profile reboot for the streamer, which now plays host to Star Trek: Discovery.

Photo Jordan Peele, whose hit directorial debut, "Get Out", is heading into awards season, will lead a new version of "The Twilight Zone". It has been revived twice in the past: Once in the mid-1980s on CBS and again in the early 2000s on UPN. CBS All Access is now available online at CBS.com, on mobile devices via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, and on Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Fire TV.
