The Twilight Zone is coming. And for those who have a CBS All Access pass, they will be able to see producer and host Jordan Peele‘s vision for the anthology series that is rooted in horror and suspense. The series promises to return to what made the original great, and will have a contemporary twist to it.
Now a pair of new trailers have been released for the episodes “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” starring Adam Scott and “The Comedian” starring Kumail Nanjiani. Check these trailers out below.
First there’s “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet.” This is a brand new telling of one of the episodes that appeared in the original series, as well as a segment of anthology film Twilight Zone: The Movie. In it, a passenger has a frantic encounter with an airborne gremlin that only he can see. But it looks like the 2019 version will have a few new differences to distinguish itself from the original. Scott is playing the role William Shatner played in the original version, and John Lithgow played in the movie.
In “The Comedian” Nanjiani plays a struggling comedian who makes a deal with someone to get laughs. However, this deal comes at a price as he starts to slowly lose pieces of his life.
The rest of the stellar cast you can expect to see in the anthology series includes Taissa Farmiga, John Cho, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Steven Yeun, DeWanda Wise, Ginnifer Goodwin, Sanaa Lathan, Tracy Morgan, Greg Kinnear, Zazie Beetz, Seth Rogen, and Chris O’Dowd.
