What does Twilight Zone mean?
"There is a fifth dimension beyond what is known to man," original serial creator and presenter Serling said in Season 1's intro, which began on October 2, 1959. "It is a dimension as big as space and as timeless as infinity: it is in the midfield between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of the fears of man and the pinnacle of his knowledge This is the dimension of the imagination 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).
"For me, the realization was that it was an opportunity to try to continue Serling's mission," said Peele Variety when the restart was announced. "Hopefully, approaching Serling without ego and a bow to Serling will be enough for our Twilight Zone fans, as well as bringing a show that's needed right now, because it's a show that has always helped us, looking at us a mirror for the company. "
How many versions were there?
The original Twilight Zone aired on CBS from 1959-1964, followed by a remake from 1985-1989. UPN created a third version of Forest Whitaker, aired from 2002 to 2003.
Can I view the original version?

I never saw it, but why do I already know the theme song?
Twilight Zone scores and the original title song by Marius Constant, a Romanian-born French composer, have been scored dozens of times overboard and infinitely many times without the permission of rock groups, hip-hop artists and electronic instruments or interpolated music producers and more. Manhattan Transfer (whose 1979 song "Twilight Zone" may be the first example of a recent sampling of the subject) is one of the more well-known acts to explore or play the main theme of the theme), Insane Clown Posse, dr. Octagon and Lil B. And although they did not try the theme directly, a Dutch band called Golden Earring in 1982 had an international hit called Twilight Zone.
Will old versions be resumed in the new version?
The executive producers Peele and Kinberg have been mothers on this issue so far, but would continue with the precedents of the two remakes if that were the case. They've announced their favorite Top 10 favorite Twilight Zone episodes ever, which can give clues as to which they would like to remake – or would never touch.
