CBS All Access has released a new promo spot for the upcoming second season of Jordan Peele’s revival of The Twilight Zone. The trailer teases the dark and haunting new stories that this upcoming season will entail and it looks like it’s going to be another great season!
As Peele says in the trailer, these stories will take us “beyond science, beyond fear, beyond humanity, individual madness, a shared nightmare.”
The reimagining of this classic series brings “the original series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling to new audiences, exploring the human condition and holding a lens up to the culture of our times. The series’ second season will use introspection and the exploration of self to usher viewers into a familiar dimension.”
The Twilight Zone is set to return on June 25th. Below the promo, I included a list of the episodes and the talent that is attached to each one.
