National Twilight Zone Day is being celebrated today, May 11, 2020 — and every May 11th going forward.
A timely day for CBS All Access to announce when Season 2 of the rebooted Twilight Zone series from Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg is coming.
Thank you, CBS, we have an answer.
The Twilight Zone returns for its second season on CBS All Access on June 25th. CBS announced the premiere date on Monday alongside the debut of the second season’s new trailer to commemorate National Twilight Zone Day. CBS also announced that all 10 episodes of the anthology series will release on the same day. This new iteration of The Twilight Zone comes from executive producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg.The Twilight Zone Season 2 Trailer Released, Premiere Date Announced
Episodes as in the first season will target a one hour run time. No information yet as to if the black and white versions will be available at launch. With Season 1 they released everything in color first and later dropped the black and white version, which I preferred.
As a lifelong fan of The Twilight Zone, including other non-media like games and media like the magazine, books and comics, I’ve followed the movie and every TV series to date (including the one Forrest Whitaker hosted).
Even when it comes to the classic 1959- TZ, I’m not as big a fan of the hour long episodes. I think the shorter 22-25 minute episodes were best suited. There have been some good longer episodes, including episodes written by Rod Serling himself, but I wish Jordan Peele and team would have focused on telling two or three different stories versus only one longer episode.
What do you think of Jordan Peele’s reboot of Twilight Zone?
The Twilight Zone (2020) Season 2 – all 10 episodes – will be available for streaming on June 25, 2020.
