Axed: The Twilight Zone

Jordan Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone has been axed after two seasons.

“Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and the entire production team truly reimagined The Twilight Zone for the modern age,” said Julie McNamara, Paramount Plus programming chief. “They upheld the classic series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling and pushed today’s viewers to explore all new dimensions of thought-provoking and topical themes that we hope will resonate with audiences for years to come.”

This reboot of the anthology series created by Rod Serling featured Peele as host, producer and narrator, with episodes featuring John Cho, Taissa Farmiga, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kumail Nanjiani, Chris O’Dowd, Seth Rogen and more.

It screened in Australia on 10 All Access.

  1. Rumour on Reddit amongst other sources is that Peele and Kinberg’s companies were the ones that were both ready to walk away from the series though CBS All Access/Paramount+ wanted the series to continue.
