I’m actually OK with this.
TV viewers should be prepared: they may be heading back to “The Twilight Zone.”
CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves announced today during the company’s earnings call that a long-rumored reboot of the classic sci-fi anthology series was in the works. THR is also reporting that, while this has yet to be officially confirmed, “The Twilight Zone” reboot will be hailing from Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw banner.
On the other hand, I’m not OK with it going on CBS All Access. But on the gripping hand, if Star Trek and The Twilight Zone are on CBS All Access I’d think about getting that streaming service. Anyway: I’m OK with this because it’s not really a reboot, is it? The format’s still the same, they’re just going to be making new horror/SF episodes in it. And since there’s been a ton of perfectly good short stories written since the 1960s that can be turned into perfectly good episodes, I’m not seeing the downside to using the Twilight Zone name.
Assuming that it doesn’t suck, of course.
