For those who don’t know, The Twilight Zone anthology series premiered in 1959 and lasted until 1964 and was hosted by its creator Rod Serling. I loved that show and used to watch every week. It always starred up-and-coming actors and actresses like Billy Mumy (Lost In Space) and William Shatner (Star Trek), who went on to have great professional success after appearing in the series.

The show takes everyday people and places them in strange and unusual situations. In the reboot series, it is set in the present day, but the premise is largely the same. It focuses on people overcoming good and evil. The doesn’t necessarily focus on the monsters in the stories, but instead, it focuses on the people in the stories. It is great there will be a second season of the series, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.

The Twilight Zone season 2 is coming to CBS All Access in 2020. Stay tuned for more information about the series.
