Peele is best known to TV audiences as half of the Comedy Central sketch duo Key & Peele, but he has significant horror cred now, too, thanks to writing and directing last year's hit film Get Out, which won Peele an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

However, the opening credits narration from the original ultimately morphs from Serling's voice to Peele's, confirming that he will serve as the host as well.

Chinese firms with factories in the United States would also face higher costs as they ship USA -assembled products back home. The 10 percent tariff is to be implemented by September 24, which will increase to 25 percent by the end of the year.

Peele tweeted a video Thursday featuring his voice alternating with Rod Serling's famous voiceover announcing the viewer's journey into another dimension.

The original Twilight Zone series ran for five seasons from 1959 to 1964, which helped break new ground for the sci-fi genre and helped pave the way for other shows like Star Trek and much more.

Ex-Buffalo Bills wide receiver, Jordan Matthews, met with the Philadelphia media earlier today after re-signing with the Eagles . During his first tenure with the Eagles, Matthews had 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns in 46 games played.

"The realization, for me, was that it was an opportunity to attempt to continue with Serling's mission", Peele said at the time. "If we approach it without ego and sort of bow to Serling, that will hopefully suffice for our fellow Twilight Zone fans but also bring back a show that I think is needed right now". With Get Out, Peele announced himself as a storyteller who could deftly blend horror and social commentary - something The Twilight Zone did perfectly in its original incarnation.
