What does Twilight Zone mean?
"There is a fifth dimension beyond what is known to man," said original series creator and presenter Rod Serling in Season 1's intro, which began on October 2, 1959. "It is a dimension as large as space and as timeless as infinity: it is in the midfield between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and lies between the human fear pit and the pinnacle of its knowledge Imagination Dimension what we call the Twilight Zone. "
Who will house the new Twilight Zone?
Peele said that initially he was reluctant to play the role of the host, but since then he has changed his mind and confirmed (though it is still unclear whether viewers will see him in front of the camera).
