Kumail Nanjiani Joins Jordan Peele’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE Reboot, Responds


One of the most intriguing new shows set to debut next year is Jordan Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone. Last month, we learned that Sanaa Lathan would star in one of the episodes of the first season. Adam Scott also landed a role in one of the episodes too. While details continue to be scarce for the stories of any of these episodes, we now know of a third actor that will appear in The Twilight Zone!

It’s been reported that Silicon Valley star and Oscar-nominated co-writer of The Big Sick Kumail Nanjiani will star in one of the episodes of the first season. As previously reported, Peele himself will appear in each episode to introduce and narrate in the spirit of series creator Rod Serling.

Nanjiani took to twitter to respond to this news in a humorous way:

There really isn’t much else to say about the show right now. CBS and company have done a very good job keeping things top secret for this show, which fits considering the nature of The Twilight Zone and how each episode is its own story. After all, why ruin any of the surprises that Peele and his team have in store for audiences?

Regardless, despite the amount of redundancy that goes into these particular articles, I really am pumped to see Peele’s new show. He’s on top of the Hollywood world right now and gotten involved in multiple promising projects.
