The Twilight Zone reboot won’t return for season 3 when CBS All Access transforms into Paramount+.
According to Deadline, CBS All Access’ reboot of the Twilight Zone has reached its end.
Based on the 1958 anthology mystery series of the same name, CBS All Access first announced its Twilight Zone reboot back in 2017. The reboot, which found Jordan Peele serving as the series’ host (a role originally held in the 1958 series by Rod Sterling), ran for a total of 20 episodes.
In addition to serving as host in front of the camera, Peele’s Monkey Paw production company was heavily involved with rebooting the series in the first place.
On Thursday (February 25), the Academy Award winner’s Monkey Paw banner issued a joint statement along with fellow production partner, Genre Films, confirming that the series has officially come to a close.
In the joint statement, both studios said that The Twilight Zone reboot had run its natural course. As a result, the creatives involved with the series had reached a mutual decision along with CBS All Access in which they opted not to move forward with a season 3.
“We greatly enjoyed our time working on The Twilight Zone— particularly when the real world around us often felt more and more like another dimensions. We cherished the opportunity to collaborate with so many talented writers, actors and crewmembers,” reads the statement.
“After 20 unique episodes, we have told the stories that we wanted to tell, and CBS All Access was gracious in their understanding of our decision. It was an honor and a privilege to bring audiences a modern re-imagining of Rod Serling’s iconic creation.”
