through another dimension
February 21, 2019

Get ready to enter a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

CBS on Thursday debuted the first full trailer for The Twilight Zone, the new reboot of the classic 1959 series. The trailer teases a variety of storylines that seem just in line with the original show, including one in which a character played by Kumail Nanjiani seems to notice things are subtly off about his universe, and one in which a kid, played by Jacob Tremblay, appears to be the president, similar to the classic devil child episode "It's a Good Life."

That's not the only tie-in to the original series in the trailer, though. An episode starring Adam Scott appears to be a riff on the classic William Shatner episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," in which a man is terrorized by a monster on the wing of a plane. Scott's episode is called "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet," and he's shown freaking out on a plane, just like Shatner's character. A doll resembling the infamous monster on the wing from that episode is also shown washed up on the beach. At another point, we see the same fortune teller machine from another classic Shatner episode, "Nick of Time."

The Twilight Zone debuts on April 1 on CBS All Access. Watch the trailer below. Brendan Morrow
