CBS has announced a new Twilight Zone anthology series from Get Out director Jordan Peele, over 50 years after the iconic sci-fi series ended its initial run. This comes about five years after the studio tried and failed to reboot the series with X-Men director Bryan Singer, and in the wake of Bioshock creator Ken Levine's stalled attempt to revive the franchise as an interactive movie or series. Right now, it isn't clear whether Peele's show has already been picked up for a series, or if the project is simply in development.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will come from Peele's production company, with Marco Ramirez, who was a showrunner for Netflix's The Defenders and a producer on Daredevil, serving as the showrunner and initial scriptwriter. The plan looks to be to put the new series on CBS All Access, the US digital network that's seen success after the debut of Star Trek: Discovery, which is still in the middle of its debut season. (Star Trek: Discovery is available on Netflix in Australia.)
