CBS All Access' original series The Twilight Zone brings the original series’ legacy of socially conscious storytelling to new audiences, exploring the human condition and holding a lens up to the culture of our times. 

The original The Twilight Zone premiered on Oct. 2, 1959, on CBS and the series took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind when it aired from 1959 to 1964.

The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity's hopes, despairs, prides, and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional dramas could not.
