The Twilight Zone season 2 is just around the corner. CBS All Access has released a new trailer for the revamped version of the classic sci-fi series, which hails from Get Out director Jordan Peele. What's more, the revival's second season is set to debut next month on June 25. But, in a change-up from season 1, every episode will drop all at once, instead of week-to-week, which means viewers will be able to binge the show, should they so choose.
The trailer opens up with a glimpse of an episode that sees a pair of girls attempting a ritual of sorts. We then bounce around between various offerings that will be part of season 2. People frozen in place around city streets due to "world maintenance," questions of identity, mysterious imagery and talk of monsters. The show is known for tackling all sorts of genre storytelling and the upcoming batch of episodes promises a great deal of variety. The trailer concludes with a familiar music cue that helps welcome us into another dimension.
Much like season 1, The Twilight Zone is returning with a huge lineup of stars next month. The cast includes Morena Baccarin, Kylie Bunbury, Jenna Elfman, Ethan Embry, Sky Ferreira, Tavi Gevinson, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, Gillian Jacobs, David Krumholtz, Thomas Lennon, Sophia Macy, Natalie Martinez, Joel McHale, Chris Meloni, Gretchen Mol, Paula Newsome, Billy Porter, Jimmi Simpson, Jurnee Smollett, Daniel Sunjata and Damon Wayans Jr. Directors for season 2 include Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, Alonso Alvarez-Barreda, Jennifer McGowan, Osgood Perkins, Ana Lily Amirpour, JD Dillard, Peter Atencio, Christina Choe, Tayarisha Poe and Mathias Herndl.
The episode titles for The Twilight Zone season 2 have been revealed as well. They include You Might Also Like, 8, Try, Try, Ovation, A Small Town, The Who Of You, A Human Face, Among The Untrodden, Meet in the Middle and Downtime. Jordan Peele, in addition to his duties as executive producer, returns as host. Simon Kindberg, Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Alex Rubens, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling and Rick Berg also serve as executive producers on the series. All of season 1, as well as the entire original series, are available to stream currently on CBS All Access, for those looking to catch up before the show returns next month.
Hosted by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone originally debuted on CBS in 1959. The series has endured in popular culture throughout the decades, inspiring a movie in 1983, as well as several attempted revivals over the years. Aside from its lineup of Star Trek shows, this is one of the most high-profile releases to date on the streaming service. The show was renewed by CBS just ahead of the season 1 finale last year. The Twilight Zone season 2 will be streaming exclusively on CBS All Access starting June 25. Be sure to check out the new trailer for yourself.
