CBS isn’t quite done mining sci-fi’s most popular shows for their new streaming platform. CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves announced Thursday that the network is planning a take on classic anthology series The Twilight Zone. The rebooted show will air on CBS’s new streaming platform, CBS All-Access, which is also home to Good Wife–spinoff The Good Fight and the recent Star Trek: Discovery. The new Twilight Zone is set to come from comedian-turned-director Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw banner, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but Peele’s role in the series has not yet been specified. Sons of Anarchy and Daredevil alum Marco Ramirez is reportedly set to write and serve as showrunner for the reboot.

The move is in keeping with CBS’s recent successes on the streaming platform; Discovery has been renewed for a second season and has been well-received by critics and long-time Trek fans alike. Peele, meanwhile, continues to thrive in 2017—and award season has barely even begun.
