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.

Game of Thrones won the Emmy for most outstanding drama series Monday at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones won the series its third Emmy in the category. It was the show’s second Emmy of the evening, after Peter Dinklage’s win for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Game of Thrones beat out The Americans, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This is Us, and Westworld.

Each season of Game of Thrones has been nominated for best drama at the Emmys since its first season debuted at the awards show in 2011. Seasons 5 and 6 both took home the Emmy in 2015 and 2016 respectively. A handful of other actors including Lena Headey, Kit Harington, and Emilia Clarke have also earned Emmy nominations over the years.

While the seventh season of Game of Throne is not widely regarded as the best of the series, it was certainly a big one and the hype around the show has not died down ahead of its next season.

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season in 2019.
