Twilight Zone

As streaming service CBS All Access gets ready to mutate into Paramount+ next month, at least one show won’t be making the transition – their recent Twilight Zone revival.

Although it ran for two seasons on the streamer, the anthology from executive producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg has gotten the axe according to the Hollywood Reporter.

This latest version of Rod Serling’s classic anthology series launched in late 2017, one of the first things from Peele who was hot just coming off his hit thriller Get Out. The pairing of the writer/director, who also served as the revival’s on screen host/narrator, with the classic science-fiction series seemed a natural and generated a lot of early buzz. However, the resulting series arrived with mixed results and it seemed as if online interest in the show quickly waned.

While no new episode will be produced, the revival will still be available when CBS All Access rebrands itself into Paramount+ on March 4, alongside the complete run of the original series. There is no word as to whether or not the Twilight Zone revival from the 1980s will also be available.
