When the Twilight Zone reboot from modern master of horror Jordan Peele premiered, it shocked everyone last year by being a worthy and true successor to Rod Serling’s all-time classic television series. Now, The Twilight Zone is returning for a second season on CBS All Access in June, once again with an all-star lineup. And once again with Peele as our host. The arrival of this trailer just so happens to coincide with national Twilight Zone Day.
You can check out the trailer for the 10-episode season down below:
So what can we expect from the second season? According to CBS All Access, “The series’ second season uses introspection and self-exploration to usher viewers into a dimension filled with endless possibilities.” Well, that sounds appropriately vague, and very classic Twilight Zone-y. Just like the original series, the new version of the series showcases socially conscious stories. These are very in keeping with Jordan Peele’s films like Get Out and Us. Also on board along with Peele as series producer is the X-Men films’ Simon Kinberg.
Among the stellar guest cast for the new season are Morena Baccarin; Kylie Bunbury; Jenna Elfman; Ethan Embry; Sky Ferreira; Tavi Gevinson; Topher Grace; Tony Hale; Gillian Jacobs; David Krumholtz; Thomas Lennon; Sophia Macy; Natalie Martinez; Joel McHale; Chris Meloni; Gretchen Mol; Paula Newsome; Billy Porter; Jimmi Simpson; Jurnee Smollett; Daniel Sunjata; Damon Wayans Jr., and more yet to be announced.
So what can we glean about the new season from the trailer? As it so often is with The Twilight Zone, there’s a lot of creepy imagery and spooky music. But it’s hard to make a trailer that gives away much in terms of narrative when it’s an anthology series. Still, it’s all very intriguing imagery, so you can count us in when season two of The Twilight Zone drops on CBS All Access on June 25th.
