During Super Bowl LIII, the live telecast was suddenly interrupted it seemed. TVs began to glitch out, and it appeared that CBS was abruptly off the air… at least, that’s what they wanted you to think.
In fact, it was actually a commercial for the new Jordan Peele helmed “Twilight Zone”, giving us our first taste of the new series.
Check out the extended commercial in the video above!
Actors who will be appearing in the new series announced so far include Ike Barinholtz, John Cho, Lucinda Dryzek, Taissa Farmiga, Greg Kinnear, Luke Kirby, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, Alison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Jefferson White, Jonathan Whitesell, Jessica Williams, DeWanda Wise and Steven Yeun.
The series officially premieres on Monday, April 1 on their online streaming service, CBS All Access. Following the two episode premiere, new episodes will be available on demand weekly on Thursdays beginning April 11, exclusively for subscribers to the website. There is a free week long trial, so if you haven’t checked out what CBS All Access has to offer, between this and Star Trek Discovery it may be a good time to give it a shot.
Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.
