Academy award-winning director Jordan Peele is bringing back the iconic show The Twilight Zone. Originally aired in 1959 until 1964, the revered program often blended science-fiction, spiritualism, and urban folklore in a mesmerizing way that led to some incredible television. The series was briefly revamped from 1985-1989 and again from 2002-2003, with Forest Whitaker succeeding Rod Sterling as narrator and on-screen host. Now, it appears Jordan Peele will have his turn to revitalize the classic series. The first season is slated to consist of ten episodes that will begin premiering on April 1st.
