From Get Out to Us, Jordan Peele has perfected a socially conscious strain of modern horror. Thus, it made sense when he set about to produce and host a reboot of the TV classic The Twilight Zone. The mid-century show, which offered audiences different stories every episode, is renowned for the way it turned modern ailments into scary conceits. For the first season of the CBS All Access reboot, the show tackled everything from police brutality to PTSD. From the looks of the trailer for the second season of the anthology series, audiences can similarly expect the original series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling, exploring the human condition and holding a lens up to the culture of our times.
While details on each episode’s storylines are still scarce, the trailer gives us the first look at the many faces who’ll populate them. In addition to the likes of Pose‘s Billy Porter and Topher Grace, the upcoming season has a number of familiar Latino faces both in front and behind the camera. Natalie Martinez will start alongside Damon Wayans Jr. in an episode titled “A Small Town,” directed by Mexican filmmaker Alonso Alvarez-Barreda. Moreover, an episode written by Peele himself titled “Downtime,” will star Deadpool‘s Morena Baccarin, If Beale Street Could Talk‘s Colman Domingo and Veep‘s Tony Hale.
Take a look at the full trailer below and get a glimpse at the various dystopian scenarios that will transport you to an eerie Twilight Zone this summer.
Season 2 of The Twilight Zone premieres June 25, 2020 on CBS All Access.
