DeWanda Wise And Jessica Williams To Star In Episode Of Jordan Peele's 'The Twilight Zone' Reboot At CBS All Access

January 14th 2019

DeWanda Wise and Jessica Williams are the latest to enter The Twilight Zone. 

The pair will star in an episode of Jordan Peele's reboot of the classic series.

Previously announced actors and actresses who are set to star include Sanaa Lathan, John Cho, Greg Kinnear, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Jacob Tremblay and Steven Yeun.

So far, we don't have any specific details or descriptions about the episodes or characters.

“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time but prophesied issues of ours. I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone," said Peele in an earlier statement. He produces the reboot and will also be the narrator.

The iconic science-fiction series, narrated by Serling, originally ran on CBS from 1959-1964. There was a revival in the '80s on CBS and a short-lived one on UPN in 2002. There was a potential anthology reboot in 2012 to be directed by Bryan Singer, as well.

Wise stars as Nola Darling in Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It and appears next in the Netflix rom-com Someone Great. Williams stars in Corporate Animals, which will premiere at Sundance this month. Aside from 2 Dope Queens, she is also creating, starring in and producing a Showtime series.
