The Twilight Zone in color feels off, even as a revival. Soon, we’ll be able to watch it as it was always supposed to be: in black and white.


Yesterday, as Collider reports, it was announced that a black-and-white version of the Jordan-Peele-helmed revival of The Twilight Zone will soon be made available on CBS All Access, alongside the original version. While the new season has been hit or miss, this nostalgic bit of coloration will hopefully lend a bit of old-school atmosphere to the proceedings.

You can watch a black-and-white trailer for the series below.

To explain the choice, Jordan Peele said, as quoted by Collider, “’Cause… come on.” Which is fair. The black-and-white version of The Twilight Zone will hit CBS All Access May 30th.

I personally feel turning something filmed in color into black and white nowadays just makes it look weird. Unless the intention were black and white from the start.

The trailer is region locked. So can’t check if that is the case with this.
