Here's the official trailer for the upcoming season, followed by an updated look at the second season schedule, with preview images to further tease what to expect when we return to that dimension of sight and sound otherwise known as, The Twilight Zone:

Executive producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg's modern re-imagining of the classic brings the original series' legacy of socially conscious storytelling to new audiences, exploring the human condition and holding a lens up to the culture of our times. The series' second season will use introspection and the exploration of self to usher viewers into a familiar dimension.
