Rogen confirmed the news via social media stating, “I’m gonna be on The Twilight Zone, which is one of my favorite shows of all time.” Rogen will star in an upcoming episode of CBS All Access series, which is written by Alex Rubens. So far no other details have been released surrounding the episode Rogen will star in, as well as what kind of role he will play.
Along with Rogen, the show has already enlisted a bevy of A-list talents including Jacob Tremblay, John Cho, Allison Tolman, Taissa Farmiga, Ginnifer Goodwin, Greg Kinnear, Luke Kirby, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, Alison Tolman, Jessica Williams, DeWanda Wise and Steven Yeun.
Like Black Mirror, The Twilight Zone is an anthology series that plays on social commentary with twist endings and moral lessons included in each episode. Originally airing from 1959-1964, the show was then revived twice in 1985 and 2002, and now again in 2019.
The Twilight Zone kicks off on Monday, April 1 with two episodes and will be narrated by Academy Award winner Jordan Peele. Subsequent episodes will then air every Thursday starting April 11 on CBS All Access.
Seth Rogen is also gearing up for Amazon’s The Boys which will land sometime later this year.
I’m gonna be on the Twilight Zone, which is one of my favorite shows of all time, and also I look like I’m attending the premier of a pretty classy porno movie in 1974 in this photo. https://t.co/mh82c07eLX
