At long last, CBS has finally given us a full trailer for Jordan Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone. The series will premieres on CBS All Access April 1st, 2019. Check out the trailer above and then scroll down for some screen caps of the stars and some easter eggs.
In addition to our first look at Adam Scott in ‘Nightmare at 30,000 Feet’, we also get to see him talking to Chris Diamantopoulos .
And then there’s Steven Yeun in ‘The Traveler’:
Tracy Jordan in a comedy club, which could be related to ‘Take My Life, Please’.
Jacob Tremblay in ‘The Wunderkind’ (which we reported previously under the name ‘Kid President’)
Joining Jacob is John Cho (most likely taking the role that was originally offered to Riz Ahmed).
And both Allison Tolman and John Larroquette.
Kumail Nanjiani in an unknown role in an unknown episode.
Greg Kinnear joining Steven Yeun in ‘The Traveler’.
Damson Idris in the remake of ‘Rewind’
And finally, Jordan Peele taking over for Rod Serling as The Narrator.
Currently we know the names of five out of the ten episodes in the first season, Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, Wunderkind, The Traveler, Point of Origin and Rewind. ‘Point of Origin’ will star Ginnifer Goodwin, James Frain, and Zabryna Guevara, thought there’s no details on the episode’s plot.
I’m excited for the show, I’m a huge fan of the original series and of Jordan Peele. As of right now, there’s no reason to think that the series will be anything less than stellar.
Here are the most obvious ones I noticed on my first watch, though I’m POSTIVE there are several more.
Here’s the monster from the original ‘Nightmare at 20,000 Feet’
Another Shatner episode reference, The devil head from ‘Nick of Time’.
Also from ‘Nick of Time’ the Busy Bee Cafe.
Santa from ‘Night of the Meek’?
