New ‘Twilight Zone’ Trailers Pull Back the Curtain to Another Dimension
New ‘Twilight Zone’ Trailers Pull Back the Curtain to Another Dimension


The premiere of Jordan Peele’s rebooted The Twilight Zone is fast approaching, and CBS has released a trio of new trailers that give us a more thorough look at just what we can expect from the new update to the classic series.


The first two trailers each highlight a different episode, effectively offering a preview of both. One is for the Adam Scott-starring “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet,” an update on the classic “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” which starred William Shatner. It’s unclear if in this new version there’s a monster on the wing of the plane like in the original, but it is clear that Scott’s character is absolutely terrified of something up there.



Next is a teaser for “The Comedian.” This one stars Kumail Nanjiani as a stand up comic (go figure) who seems to make a deal with a mysterious man (Tracy Morgan) to get everything he ever wanted, but then suffers unforeseen consequences. This one’s got some serious Monkey’s Paw/Faustian vibes going on, in classic Twilight Zone fashion.



Finally, there’s a new extended trailer that gives brief looks at a number of episodes in addition to the two above. There’s one episode with John Cho, who seems to fall under the spell of a child political leader (or cult leader) played by Jacob Tremblay. Another stars Sanaa Lathan as a woman apparently stuck in a time loop. And then there’s one with Ike Barinholtz acting like a deranged psychopath, all covered in blood. You can see all this, plus more mysterious clips and big stars, in the trailer below.



The Twilight Zone starts streaming April 1 on CBS All Access, with a two-part premiere of “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” and “The Comedian.”
