After only two season, Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s rebooted Twilight Zone has been canceled at CBS All Access. When the series first premiered it was heralded with a ton of promotion and anticipation. However, something always felt off. The series ultimately failed to live up to the hype. Not to mention the series just felt passé next to this generation’s version of Twilight Zone, Black Mirror.
The new Twilight Zone was a modern reimagining of Rod Serling’s classic series that ran from 1959-1964, the new version was hosted and narrated by the Academy Award winner Peele who has created modern-day horror blockbusters “Get Out” and “Us.”
“Jordan Peele, [executive producer] Simon Kinberg and the entire production team truly reimagined The Twilight Zone for the modern age,” the streaming platform’s programming chief Julie McNamara said in a statement to TVLine. “They upheld the classic series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling and pushed today’s viewers to explore all new dimensions of thought-provoking and topical themes that we hope will resonate with audiences for years to come.”
