The second season of the CBS All Access anthology reboot of The Twilight Zone has added a robust list of cast members that will travel through another dimension…a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A dimension called The Twilight Zone.

Added to the 10-episode sophomore season of Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s reimagining of the classic sci-fi series is Kylie Bunbury, Sky Ferreira, Topher Grace, David Krumholtz, Thomas Lennon, Natalie Martinez, Gretchen Mol, Paula Newsome, Jurnee Smollett, Damon Wayans Jr., among others.

Some highlights for the newly announced slate of actors include the episode titled “Ovation” which is directed by Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) and written by Emily C. Chang and Sara Amini. The episode is stacked with Ferreira, Smollett-Bell as well as Tawny Newsome (Space Force, Lower Decks), Paul F. Tompkins (BoJack Horseman, Comedy Bang! Bang!) and Thomas Lennon.

Jen McGowan will direct “Try, Try” written by Alex Rubens and starring Topher Grace (Blackkklansman, Black Mirror) and Kylie Bunbury (When They See Us, Pitch) while Osgood Perkins wrote and directed “You Might Also Like” starring Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire, Manchester by the Sea) and Greta Lee (Russian Doll, High Maintenance).
