Season two will feature another impressive roster of guests.

Last year, Jordan Peele revived Rod Serling’s 1950s-’60s sci-fi anthology The Twilight Zone, putting a modern spin and his unmistakable touch on the classic series. Now, he has revealed when we can expect to see season two and just what it will hold.

Peele will resume the duties of host and narrator, with season two once again inviting a new roster of familiar faces to play out the series’ supernatural tales. Guests appearing in season two will include Billy Porter, Tony Hale, Damon Wayans Jr., Gillian Jabocs, Sky Ferreira, Topher Grace and many more.

The ten-episode second season will air on CBS All Access on June 25 in America. While there’s no official word on when or where it will be released in Australia, it’s likely to hit our screens on the CBS-owned Network 10.

Renowned for infusing horror with social commentary, Peele’s Twilight Zone holds a mirror up to the world we live in while colouring it with supernatural themes. If season one is anything to go by, we’re in for a treat when the second instalment drops.
