Steven Yeun Is Heading to ‘The Twilight Zone’ Reboot

December 13, 2018

Fresh off his victory of Best Supporting Actor at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, Steven Yeun is making his way back to the small screen. “The Walking Dead” alum is set to star in an episode of “The Twilight Zone” reboot on CBS All Access.

According to Collider, the “Burning” actor is set to play the title character in “The Traveler”, the fourth episode of the Jordan Peele series. The episode will follow two cops and a mysterious traveler.

The Glenn Rhee depicter is the latest star who has been announced to join the revamped show. “The Twilight Zone” reboot will also star Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick“, “Silicon Valley“), Sanaa Lathan (“American Assassin“, “Nappily Ever After“), Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation“, “Big Little Lies“) and Jacob Tremblay (“Room“, “The Predator“). It’s also rumored that “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” star Riz Ahmed will appear in Jacob’s episode.

The new “The Twilight Zone” is also developed just like the original series that featured standalone episodes. With that being said, it seems like instead of seeing the stars sharing screen on the show, they will lead one episode each.

The revival marks the latest attempt to bring back the series. The first two revivals ran from 1985-89 on CBS before it was followed with another reboot that aired on CBS from 2002-03.

In addition to executive producing the revival, Jordan will be serving as the series’ regular host/narrator. This is not going to be the only collaboration for Jordan and Steven. The two will join forces on the upcoming comedy/sci-fi series “Weird City“. The actor will make an appearance in an episode of the series, which has Jordan attached as the executive producer.

“The Twilight Zone” still has no premiere date, but it is expected to debut sometime in 2019 on CBS All Access.
