United States television channel CBS has announced it will resurrect the science-fiction series, in a bid to boost its subscription-based streaming platform CBS All Access.

This will be the third time "The Twilight Zone" has been revived. CBS Television Network has announced that a reboot of The Twilight Zone will be joining Star Trek: Discovery in the streaming service's original programming slate. So he created one: Peele wrote and directed 2017's best-reviewed movie, the $4.5 million horror-comedy "Get Out", an uncomfortable look at race relations in America, which has grossed more than $250 million worldwide.

This reboot won't just be some half-assed take though.

The Twilight Zone reboot has been shopped around Hollywood for some time now.

CBS All Access subscribers can watch anything that CBS has to offer, like local market National Football League games, and exclusive All Access shows like "Star Trek: Discovery" and the newest addition to the lineup: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer".

Are you excited to see what this gang can bring to a new Twilight Zone series?

Simon Kinberg, who has worked heavily on the X-Men franchise, will also be an executive producer on the project. It won two Emmys, and Serling won a Golden Globe.

It also spawned 1983's Twilight Zone: The Movie, which is tragically remembered for the deaths of actor Vic Morrow, and child stars Renee Chen and Myca Dinh Le, in an on-set accident in Santa Clarita, California in July of 1982. It featured quite a few episodes by George R.R. Martin, as well as adaptations of stories by Stephen King, Harlan Ellison, and Arthur C. Clarke. The second reboot, starring Forest Whitaker, premiered on UPN from 2002 to 2003.

Let's hope this new revival fares much better. We'll update this article as soon as we hear more.
