The Twilight Zone’s vortex will continue to spin at CBS All Access, Variety reports, as the streamer has renewed Jordan Peele’s reboot of the spooky anthology for a second season.

It’s been a mixed bag, these latest episodes—last week’s episode, in which Jacob Tremblay plays a pre-teen president was a real clunker—but the highs have been high—see: “Replay”—and the talent has been relentless. Adam Scott, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cho, and Steven Yeun are just a few of the performers to have graced the season so far, and Taissa Farmiga, Zazie Beetz, Chris O’Dowd, and Ike Barinholtz will appear in the coming weeks. Per CBS All Access, the series’ April 1 premiere marked its highest level of unique viewers ever on a premiere day, meaning that the property is bringing new subscribers to the streamer.


Next up is Thursday’s space-set “Six Degrees Of Freedom,” which stars Jessica Williams and DeWanda Wise. Catch a trailer for it below.
