Prepare to reenter The Twilight Zone (although most days it feels like we never left).

CBS All Access is reviving the beloved sci-fi anthology series with Get Out helmer Jordan Peele, X-Men movie producer Simon Kinberg and Daredevil showrunner Marco Ramirez, who will executive produce the reboot and collaborate on the premiere episode.

“Too many times this year it’s felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can’t think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,” said Peele in a statement.

The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life,” added Kinberg. “The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and I’m so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team at CBS All Access.”

“The original ‘The Twilight Zone’ bridged science-fiction, horror and fantasy together to explore human nature and provide social commentary in a way that audiences had never seen before,” said Julie McNamara, executive vice president of original content at CBS All Access. “Under the auspices of Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez, and with the creative freedom that the CBS All Accessplatform affords, this is an incredible opportunity to bring today’s audiences a modern reimagining of this iconic series.”

The original series aired on CBS from 1959-1964 and spawned two previous revivals from 1985–1989 and 2002–2003, along with a 1983 film and theme park ride at several Disney parks.

“HBO has confirmed Game of Thrones‘ final supersized episodes, including three that hit the 80-minute mark. While the first two episodes will be around the average Game of Thrones hour, the series’ final four episodes will be – as promised – roughly the same runtime as a short feature film.

The first two episode run times were already confirmed, but HBO released all six on Friday.

Episode 1: 54 minutes
Episode 2: 58 minutes
Episode 3: 1 hours, 22 minutes
Episode 4: 1 hour, 18 minutes
Episode 5: 1 hour, 20 minutes
Episode 6: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Resourceful fans have been sussing out the official episode lengths for months now. Winter is Coming approximated all of them as early as January, thanks to some French press for the show.

On Monday, an online commenter figured out that tinkering with some HBO URLs revealed the exact run times of all six episodes, which are almost exactly as HBO went on to confirm.

Game of Thrones returns April 14.”
