Jordan Peele is not letting a quickly approaching premiere date and fully loaded trailer stop the steady flow of Twilight Zone casting announcements. That’s not a complaint, mind you. With a round-up that includes the likes of Steven Yeun, John Cho, Allison Tolman, and Kumail Nanjiani, each addition seems geared towards making us seriously consider getting a CBS All Access account. And here to make that decision even tougher is Zazie Beetz and Betty Gabriel, who will be tagging along for the eerie fun.  

The actresses are slated to appear in an undisclosed early episode after the show’s April 1 premiere. The announcement is the latest in Beetz’s impressive roster of work, which has steadily grown since Atlanta to include Deadpool 2, Netflix’s High Flying Bird, and a spot in the upcoming DC film Joker. Gabriel and Peele are no strangers to the spooky team-up: Gabriel’s turn in Get Out as Georgina the cryptic maid is still one of the most memorable and memed performances of the modern genre. Since then, she’s appeared in Westworld and Counterpart on Starz.


The first two episodes of The Twilight Zone will premiere on April 1, with new episodes streaming weekly starting April 11.
