It looks like Star Trek isn’t the only sci-fi icon finding new life on CBS All Access. Network heads confirm that a Twilight Zone reboot is in development for the streaming branch, as produced by Get Out director and Key & Peele favorite Jordan Peele.
Star Trek: Discovery looks about how we’d expect a modernized take on classic Trek, but we’ll always wonder how Bryan Fuller would have imagined it.

Thankfully, the contemporary update on the classic detective character is being shopped elsewhere, so hopefully they’ll find another network that doesn’t cringe at the thought of all this lady stuff.
CBS’ Supergirl has gone pretty all-in when it comes to depicting outlandish DC characters, and the next to pop up on the comic drama is downright scary. Following a Flash-y cameo, the first full look at Italia Ricci as DC big bad Silver Banshee has arrived, howling makeup and all.
