The Twilight Zone - Season 2


This season debuted the theme music by Marius Constant most often associated with The Twilight Zone, replacing the first season music written by Bernard Herrmann. The graphics used for the intro were a hybrid of the two sets of graphics used for the first season, with some slight modifications to Rod Serling's narration. For the first three episodes Serling's narration went as follows:




The Twilight Zone - Season 2



The Twilight Zone is an American anthology television series developed by Simon Kinberg, Jordan Peele, and Marco Ramirez, based on the original 1959 television series created by Rod Serling. Peele serves as narrator, in addition to executive producing through Monkeypaw Productions. The weekly series premiered on April 1, 2019, on CBS All Access, and was renewed for a second season halfway through its first set of 10 episodes. The second season was released in its entirety on June 25, 2020. In February 2021, the producers announced the series would not return for additional seasons. .mw-parser-output .toclimit-2 .toclevel-1 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-3 .toclevel-2 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-4 .toclevel-3 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-5 .toclevel-4 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-6 .toclevel-5 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-7 .toclevel-6 uldisplay:none


As in the original series, each episode in this incarnation of The Twilight Zone deals with a different topic, addressing such subjects as supernatural occurrences, racism, social issues, misinformation in the press, alien invasions, and immigration, with an unusual and an unexpected twist in each program. Notable episodes include Sanaa Lathan as a woman who discovers that her camcorder can turn back time, Chris O'Dowd as an anthropologist who studies a strange gun, Morena Baccarin as a hotel manager who finds everyone around her standing still, and Damon Wayans Jr. as a church handyman who finds that he can change his town by manipulating a smaller model of it. John Larroquette, Donna Dixon, Eric Keenleyside, Kristin Lehman, Ryan Robbins, Peter Kelamis, Ethan Embry, Gil Bellows, and George Takei also worked in these two seasons of the Twilight Zone.


On August 6, 2018, it was confirmed that the first season would consist of ten episodes. Additionally, it was reported that the production had established a writers' room and completed concepts, outlines, and scripts for the first season in various stages of development. The series was not planned to have a formal showrunner but director Greg Yaitanes was set to be in charge of overseeing continuity among episodes.[7] On September 20, 2018, it was announced that, in addition to executive producing, Peele would serve as the series' narrator and host.[8] On October 2, 2018, it was announced via a promotional video for the series that Gerard McMurray was directing an episode with Mathias Herndl serving as his director of photography.[9] On November 15, 2018, it was reported that Alex Rubens would write an episode of the series.[10]


On April 29, 2019, the series was renewed for a second season.[11] In January 2020, CBS All Access revealed episode information on six of the ten episodes of the second season.[12] In May 2020, information on the final four episodes of the season were revealed.[13] On February 24, 2021, CBS All Access announced the series would be ending after two seasons; Peele and Kinberg's companies released a joint statement indicating that although All Access (rebranded as Paramount+) wanted the series to continue, it was "our decision" and that they had "told the stories that we wanted to tell".[14][15]


In January 2020, several cast members for the second season were announced, which included: Morena Baccarin, Tony Hale, Billy Porter, Christopher Meloni, Joel McHale, Jimmi Simpson and Gillian Jacobs.[12] In May 2020, another round of castings were revealed, which included: Topher Grace, Jurnee Smollett and Damon Wayans Jr.[13]


Principal photography for season one began on October 1, 2018, in Vancouver, British Columbia,[29] and concluded on March 20, 2019.[30] The producers chose to make the series in color instead of black and white. Executive producer Simon Kinberg stated that the team "wanted to do something to honor the essence and sensibility and style of the original without going so overboard that we were doing a karaoke version of the original."[31] However, the series was also made available to watch in black and white.[32] For the opening sequence, executive producer Simon Kinberg stated that imagery was chosen that reflected the original television series, something used in place of a black-and-white color scheme.[33] Filming for the second season was scheduled to commence from October 6, 2019, to March 16, 2020, in Vancouver.[34]


On January 30, 2019, it was announced during the Television Critics Association's annual winter press tour that the series would premiere on April 1, 2019.[35] A black-and-white version of the first season was released on May 30, 2019.[36] The second season was released in its entirety on June 25, 2020.[37] In February 2023, the series, among other Paramount+ and Showtime original series was removed from the service.[38]


Still, at least The Twilight Zone season 2, episode 7 has some things on its mind, even if sharing them in quite this way seems misguided. I appreciate the sentiment, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.


Season 2Series:The Twilight ZoneNo. of Episodes:29Premiere Date:September 30, 1960Finale Date:June 2, 1961Other SeasonsPrevious:Season 1Next:Season 3The is an overview of season two of the original The Twilight Zone TV series, which ran from 1960 to 1961, airing 29 episodes.


Note: Six episodes of this season were consecutively recorded on videotape (not on film as all other episodes) at CBS Television City, as a cost-cutting measure mandated by CBS programming head James T. Aubrey.


Depending on locations chosen for a potential new season, production shutdowns could affect when the show can start filming again, pushing a possible Season 3 back even further, maybe even into the fall or winter of next year.


The new take on The Twilight Zone is produced and presented by Jordan Peele, who won the Academy Award for best original screenplay for his 2017 horror film, Get Out. The first season premiered in 2019. All 10 episodes of The Twilight Zone's new season will be available Thursday, June 25 on CBS All Access.


Loneliness is the prevailing theme in the second season of 'The Twilight Zone.' Episodes like "King Nine Will Not Return," "The Obsolete Man," and "Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room" all deal with some feeling of loneliness or neglect. Captain James Embry in "King Nine Will Not Return" ends up in familiar 'Twilight Zone' territory when he finds himself stranded in the middle of the desert with his World War II bomber. Only his crew is gone, and he's beginning to have hallucinations. "The Obsolete Man" tells the story of a man who is lost in a utopian society that rivals the evils of creativity-squashing communism. "Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room" deals with a wannabe gangster who doesn't have the guts to perform his next criminal act. He's supposed to kill someone, and he doesn't know if he can. Alone in a cheap hotel room he tries to convince himself to do the job.


There are quite a few one-man-shows in this season, but isn't that what 'The Twilight Zone' is all about? Episodes starring only one person allow us to delve deep into their psyche. See what makes them tick. Experience what they are experiencing. To this day, no show has been able to explore human emotions and fears like 'The Twilight Zone.' Rod Serling definitely knew how to string us along through a story inside someone's mind, learning along the way about humanity and how hard being human can be.


By the second season 'The Twilight Zone' had amassed a healthy audience and the show was off and running. It covered so many different angles and plots it's impossible to discuss them all now. From pawn store genies, to time travel, to bags of battles of the mind. One week the show would delve into the supernatural, and then the next week it would deal with a strong human emotion like loneliness or love.


There's just something about these taut half-hour episodes that suck you in and don't let you go until the end. In a day where serial dramas reign supreme on TV and we watch the same characters doing the same things over and over for years, it's refreshing to revisit a time where each episode encapsulated a beginning, middle, and end. New characters were introduced each week, and with Serling's brilliant writing we were able to fall in love before our fleeting 30 minutes with them were up. By season two, 'The Twilight Zone' had clearly become one of the best shows to ever grace the small screen, before or since. After the fantastic job they did with season one, let's all give Image Entertainment a standing ovation for releasing another stellar season of this iconic series.


'Twilight Zone: Season 2' Comes packed in a nice oversized keepcase. With a slickly designed cardboard slipcover that looks great on the shelf next to season one. The set comes complete with 4 50GB Blu-ray discs all packed into the keepcase with flipper trays so the discs are housed back to back. Each episode features Rod Serling's preview for the episode that will air the next week.


Most of the second season was shot on 35mm film. For this transfer, just like the first season, they went back to the original 35mm negatives and created all new transfers. However, there is one caveat. Six of the episodes in this season were shot on videotape ("Static," "The Lateness of the Hour," "The Whole Truth," "The Night of the Meek," "Long Distance Call," and "Twenty Two"). These episodes have a very notable difference in overall look and feel compared to the other episodes filmed with 35mm film. The videotape episodes are presented in 1080i while the rest of the set is presented in 1080p. 041b061a72
