Season two of The Twilight Zone on CBS All Access is adding even more star-power to its cast roster. The new iteration of the classic Rod Serling series executive produced by Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg is set for ten episodes on the streaming platform.
Topher Grace (That 70s Show) and Damon Wayans, Jr. (The Other Guys) are just the tip of the casting iceberg for the show’s sophomore season. Deadline is reporting that Gretchen Mol (The Thirteenth Floor), Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Birds of Prey), Kylie Bunbury (When They See Us), Sky Ferreira (The Green Inferno), David Krumholtz (The Deuce), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911), Natalie Martinez (Death Race), and Paula Newsome (Guess Who) will also appear in the upcoming season.
Morena Baccarin (Deadpool), Jenna Elfman (Fear the Walking Dead), Ethan Embry (Grace and Frankie), and Billy Porter (American Horror Story: Apocalypse) are among cast members previously announced for the series.
Episode directors for this season include directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (The Endless), Alonso Alvarez-Barreda (The Walk), Jen McGowan (Rust Creek), Osgood Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter), Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), JD Dillard (Sleight), Peter Atencio (Keanu), Christina Choe (Nancy), Tayarisha Poe (Selah and the Spades), and Mathias Herndl (The Order).
Season one of the show debuted to mostly positive reviews. The show combined themes and motifs from the older series with contemporary sensibilities to create Twilight Zone that was not only entertaining but relevant to an audience in the 21st Century.
There is no set release date for season two of The Twilight Zone at this time, but we definitely can’t wait to see what this slate of talent brings together!
