Looks like this Academy award-winning director is taking on a new project. The Get Out director has just been named the new host and narrator of The Twilight Zone.

CBS shared that Peele will partake in the classic television show that aired between 1959 to 1964. The show as created and narrated by Rod Serling back in the day.

Check out the network’s official announcement below!

In a statement to Variety earlier this year, Peele said,

“Why would I ever jump into the most established, pristine shoes in all of the genre? I could rip Twilight Zone off and call it something different and not be compared to Rod Serling. So I stepped away from it. And then several months later I got another call.”

Peele will team up with producer Simon Kinberg in order to make this revival happen.

Jordan Peele is currently working on his new film project, Us which is slated to hit theaters in 2019.
