This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area we call the Twilight Zone. "
Who should be host the new Twilight Zone?
Peele said he was originally unwilling to also enter the host role, but he has then reconsidered and confirmed (although it is still unclear whether the viewers see him on camera).
"For me, it was an opportunity to try to continue with Serling's mission," Peele told Variety when the restart was announced. "If we approach it without an ego and sort of bow to Serling, it will hopefully be enough for our other Twilight Zone fans but also take back a show that is needed right now. Because it's a show that always helped us to look at ourselves, hold a mirror up to society. "
