'The Twilight Zone' Season 2 Streaming: How to Watch Online

Just as real-life starts to feel like a strange and mysterious dystopia, CBS All Access is about to release a second season of its reboot of The Twilight Zone. Jordan Peele returns as The Narrator of 10 new tales, due to be streaming all at once this June.

How to watch The Twilight Zone Season 2 online

In the U.S., The Twilight Zone is a CBS All Access, meaning that the streaming service is the only place where viewers can watch the series online legally. The streamer will release all 10 episodes of Season 2 from Thursday, June 25.

CBS All Access offers two payment levels for viewers—a $5.99-a-month version with limited commercials and an ad-free version at $9.99. Both levels offer a seven-day free trial that gives the viewer the chance to watch episodes of The Twilight Zone online.

Amazon Prime Video viewers can also choose CBS All Access as an add-on, which has the same two price levels as the website/app version of All Access.

As well as the Jordan Peele show, CBS All Access viewers can watch original series like The Good Fight, Star Trek Picard, and Star Trek Discovery, as well as CBS shows like NCIS, Criminal Minds, and Blue Bloods.

As CBS All Access is only available in a limited number of countries, international fans may have a little longer to wait before they can see The Twilight Zone Season 2. In the U.K., for example, The Twilight Zone only came to screens and the streaming service NOW TV in February 2020, 10 months after it aired in the U.S.

How to watch the classic Twilight Zone

CBS All Access offers not only the rebooted version of the show, but also the original incarnation which ran on CBS from 1959 to 1964. All five seasons of the Rod Serling-hosted mystery series are on CBS, as well as on Hulu. Netflix also has four seasons of the classic show.

The controversial 1983 Twilight Zone: The Movie, meanwhile, is streaming on the Cinemax streamer Max Go and the Cinemax Amazon Prime Video add-on.
