In the first season, Peele created the reboot and has a story credit on “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet,” a 2019 twist on the classic episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.” This time, Peele will be writing his own script, entitled “Downtime.” The episode will star Morena Baccarin, Colman Domingo, and Tony Hale, though the premise has yet to be revealed.
There’s also “The Who of You” starring Sunjata, Embry and Porter in an episode written by Win Rosenfeld, Peele’s partner in Monkeypaw Productions. Rosenfeld’s only other writing credit is the company’s upcoming Candyman feature film.
Meanwhile, “A Human Face” stars Elfman, Meloni and Gevinson in a script by Alex Rubens. Rubens wrote the series premiere “The Comedian”with Kumail Nanjiani and “Blurrman” starring Zazie Beetz and Seth Rogen.
“Among the Untrodden” stars Abbie Hern and Sophia Macy with an “introducing” credit. Heather Anne Campbell is credited as writer, and she previously wrote season one’s “Not All Men” and co-wrote “Six Degrees of Freedom.”
Fially, “Meet in the Middle” stars Simpson and Jacobs in a script by Emily C. Chang and Sara Amini, the writing team behind the web series Misery Loves Company.
Lining up an A-list cast is a no brainer. Talent wants to work with Peele and the commitment to a Twilight Zone episode is about one week’s work. What’s even more exciting are the writers. Peele writing an episode will give us a fix before his next feature, and we’ll get a preview of what Rosenfeld has to offer too.
The second season of the Twlight Zone doesn’t have a reelase date yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
