Paramount+ is exiting The Twilight Zone.
Jordan Peele’s eerie anthology series won’t return for Season 3 at the streaming site, TVLine has learned.
Peele (Get Out, Us) hosted, narrated and executive-produced the revival, which offered a modern refresh of the 1960s sci-fi series. Notable guest stars included Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU), Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg), Billy Porter (Pose), Jimmi Simpson (Westworld), Joel McHale (Community) and Morena Baccarin (Gotham).
“Jordan Peele, [executive producer] Simon Kinberg and the entire production team truly reimagined The Twilight Zone for the modern age,” Julie McNamara, Paramount+ executive vice president and head of programming, said in a statement to TVLine. “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.”
The show’s production company, Monkeypaw & Genre Films, added via statement: “We greatly enjoyed our time working on The Twilight Zone — particularly when the real world around us often felt more and more like another dimension. We cherished the opportunity to collaborate with so many talented writers, actors and crewmembers. After 20 unique episodes, we have told the stories that we wanted to tell, and CBS All Access was gracious in their understanding of our decision. It was an honor and a privilege to bring audiences a modern re-imagining of Rod Serling’s iconic creation.”
The Twilight Zone‘s Season 2 premiered on CBS All Access (which soon will become Paramount+) in June 2020.
