The mythical Twilight Zone returns, with Jordan Peele (Get Out) at the controls

It was a while since the project existed, but it is now official: The Fourth Dimension will return to our dormers.

The CBS channel has just formalized the launch of the reboot of the famous series The Fourth Dimension known in the world as Twilight Zone . This science-fiction show, sometimes carried by major actors, was broadcast from 1959 to 1964, and will have lasting impact on many viewers.

The magazine Variety indicates that it was Jordan Peele who was chosen to become the executive producer of the series. He will be accompanied by Simon Kinberg, who has produced several opus of the saga X-Men. The scenographic aspect will return to Marco Ramirez, who has already worked on The Defenders (Marvel).

Get Out

A choice that seems wise. Peele has indeed impressed with the flash success of Get Out (our review), a rereading of many classics of terror, endowed with an underlying theme about the social unrest that is shaking America . It is hoped, moreover, that this remake introduces current themes to the basic horror postulate. The 38-year-old director lets him hear it anyway.

"Too often this year, we had the impression of living in The Fourth Dimension … So I can not imagine a better time to revive the series. "

This also seems to be the case on the side of the chain, which intends to dust off the show, which will only be broadcast on its online All Access platform.

"The original Twilight Zone bridged the gap between science fiction, horror and fantasy to explore human nature in ways the public had never seen before. Led by Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez, and with the creative freedom offered by the CBS All Access platform, there is an incredible opportunity to bring today's audience a modern reinterpretation of this cult series. "

We will not hide it, we can not wait to see what it will give.
