How to watch ‘Twilight Zone’ for free

There’s a rumor floated by some old guy named Rod that there’s this dimension beyond that which is known to man. A dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It lies between the pit of man’s fears… You know the rest. The classic science-fiction anthology series The Twilight Zone holds up pretty well for something that was made at the tail end of the Eisenhower administration.

The show’s new reboot is helmed by one of the best horror auteurs of our time, Jordan Peele, who gave the world Get Out and recently Us. Serving as executive producer and host, Peele will introduce 10 brand-new stories that will haunt you, chill you, and make you think.

“The first two episodes put a sharp, contemporary spin on an old favorite, sending a promising message for the rest of the season,” the Daily Dot’s Gavia Baker-Whitelaw wrote in her 5-star review of The Twilight Zone’s first two episodes. “Even amid recent sci-fi anthologies like Black Mirror and Electric Dreams, the Twilight Zone brand remains strong. These introductory episodes are unmistakably Twilight Zone stories, built on simple, character-driven ideas with minimal world-building. They’re still speculative fiction, but they’re more along the lines of Groundhog Day or It’s A Wonderful Life—stories that many viewers wouldn’t automatically identify as sci-fi or fantasy.”
