Along with his partner, the debonair Air Force Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey), he is summoned to investigate UFO sightings around the country and use science to discover what really happened. However, when some encounters cannot be explained away and cases remain open, Hynek begins to suspect that he has been duped by the government into a larger conspiracy to cover up the truth. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and rising Atomic Era, each episode will draw from the actual Project Blue Book case files, blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history.

The original Twilight Zone series was created by Rod Serling and ran for five seasons until 1964, ending with a total of 156 episodes that starred actors like Dennis Hopper, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Redford, and William Shatner. The show was known for using socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times.

“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time but prophesied issues of ours,” Peele said in a statement last year. “I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone.”

The series will be available exclusively only to CBS All Access subscribers.

‘Game of Thrones’ will return for its eighth and final season on April 14, new teaser reveals

Published

Game of Thrones
HBO

Ahead of the premiere of the third season of True Detective on Sunday, HBO aired a new Game of Thrones teaser which reveals April 14 as the debut date for the show’s upcoming six-episode eighth season.

The teaser, which was directed by David Nutter, who won an Emmy in 2015 for the season five finale of Game of Thrones, features an original score by Ramin Djawadi, who also picked up an Emmy for his work on the show in 2018 for the season seven finale.

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who wrote the scripts for season eight with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill, also directed several episodes of the forthcoming season along with Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik.

While the eighth season of Game of Thrones will ultimately also be its last, HBO isn’t done with the property altogether, as the network has an assortment of different plans for the show tucked up their sleeves.

One of those plans is a spinoff series, which will be set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones and will chronicle the world’s descent from the so-called “Golden Age of Heroes” into its darkest period in history.

“We’re just starting the search for director [and] casting director,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in November, adding that he hopes the spinoff which is based on a story created by Jane Goldman and Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, will begin shooting this year.

Season eight of Game of Thrones will air at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
