CBS All Access

The revival of ‘The Twilight Zone’ will return to CBS All Access this summer, if you need a little “escape.”  (And who doesn’t right now?)  The streaming service announced that the series, created and executive produced by Jordan Peele, will be back on June 25.  This announcement was delivered along with a new poster and trailer on Monday, a.k.a. National Twilight Zone Day.  (Yes, that’s a thing.)

The first season, consisting of 10 episodes, was released last April-May and received mixed-to-positive reviews.  Kumail Nanjiani received an Emmy Award nomination for starring in the episode, “The Comedian.”  The second season will also contain 10 episodes, and like last year’s batch, will feature an all-star lineup of actors, writers, and directors.

Check out the new trailer below:

And below is the new poster, featuring the tagline “Escape.”
