Jordan Peele’s CBS All Access reboot of The Twilight Zone has added Get Out’s Betty Gabriel and Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz to its growing roster.
Gabriel appeared as the creepy housekeeper Georgina in Peele’s Oscar-winning directorial debut. Beetz is known for her roles as Vanessa in FX’s “Atlanta” opposite Donald Glover and as Domino in 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool 2.”
The original “The Twilight Zone” took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama could not.
Cast members of the standalone episodes will include Sanaa Lathan, DeWanda Wise, Jessica Williams, Tracy Morgan, Damson Idris, Adam Scott, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cho, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Erica Tremblay, Steven Yeun, Greg Kinnear, Lucinda Dryzek, Jefferson White, Jonathan Whitesell, Taissa Farmiga, Rhea Seehorn, Luke Kirby, Ike Barinholtz, Percy Hynes-White, Ginnifer Goodwin, James Frain, and Zabryna Guevara.
The Twilight Zone will air the first two episodes on April 1.
