LATEST VERSION OF ‘TWILIGHT ZONE’ CANCELLED

On March 4th, the CBS All Access streaming service will morph into Paramount+. As part of trying to attract new subscribers, Paramount+ has announced plans for numerous reboots and revivals but one is being left behind. The latest incarnation of The Twilight Zone has been cancelled. There won’t be a third season of the revival hosted by Jordan Peele.

Developed by Simon Kinberg, Marco Ramirez, and Peele, the CBS All Access version debuted in April 2019, and episodes of the first season were released weekly. The Twilight Zone was renewed for a second season and those episodes were released in one batch, in June 2020.

In a statement, Julie McNamara, executive VP and head of programming for Paramount+, said, “Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg, and the entire production team truly reimagined The Twilight Zone for the modern age. They upheld the classic series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling and pushed today’s viewers to explore all new dimensions of thought-provoking and topical themes that we hope will resonate with audiences for years to come.”

While there won’t be a third season, the existing episodes of this latest incarnation will continue to be available
