The original “Twilight Zone” premiered fifty-nine years ago to widespread praise, and since then there’s been a few iterations. The 1985 revival lasted four years, and the next one in 2002 lasted just one. Most critics seem to agree that while they all hold merit, none stack up against the original. That may change. CBS has begun plans for a brand new version narrated by Jordan Peele. Five years ago, that name rarely appeared in the entertainment world, but since his shockingly well done horror movie “Get Out,” Peele has been sought out by everyone for everything. The new “Twilight Zone” will continue the previous style of  socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times. Hearing the words “a modern reimagining of Twilight Zone” immediately conjures up images of a rehash of Netflix’s hit series “Black Mirror,” but hopefully the studio’s plans can extend beyond the scope of technology. Peele will also serve as executive producer for the show, which starts filming this fall and will likely be a good application of his horror skils, with a bit of mystery and sci-fi. The only way the series may be held back is its platform: CBS All Access. A paid subscription will be required, and that limited audience lessens the show’s impact.
