News & Interviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 2
These episodes certainly feel more strongly written than Season 1, and if the editing tightens up like it did before, these new entries could be amazing.
Ultimately, this Twilight Zone suffers by comparison, because there is just so much to compare it with - Serling's still peerless original, Jordan Peele's movies, other sci-fi anthology series such as Black Mirror and now TZ's own first season.
CBS All Access' reboot of The Twilight Zone rarely beats the audience at the guessing games it poses, or when it does, the twist is so basic as to be barely worth scoffing at.
These episodes feel stronger written than Season 1, and if the editing tightens up like it did before, these new entries could be amazing. It'll be hard for any other episode to be better than "You Might Also Like," though, which is a pure masterpiece.
In a twist worthy of the show's creepy music, the original series speaks to the strange times through which we're living more directly and profoundly than the new one.
Season 2 is satisfyingly spooky and twisted, with a wry sense of humor.
If the rest of Season 2 is as bold and original as its first three episodes, it's well on its path to eclipsing that uneven first season and potentially becoming a must-watch series of television.
Another weirdly entertaining set of stories in the tradition of its original predecessor.
An incremental improvement over the revival's mixed first season, with the binge model proving the perfect delivery system for these bite-sized stories.
It's weird to live in a world where The Twilight Zone can impede on Black Mirror's territory, but here we are.
Audience Reviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 2
Jan 05, 2021Phenomenal season, well worth watching.
Jan 04, 2021What a shame. The first season was excellent. It did justice to the classic Twilight Zone series while taking the formula in bold new directions. Unfortunately, the second season is full of stilted dialogue, characters acting in bizarre ways to match the planned plotting, and frequent giving speeches explaining the entire plots of episodes (poor Joel McHale deserves better). One or two solid episodes were solid, but the rest belong in an introductory screenwriting class.
Oct 23, 2020A huge, huge disappointment compared to the original.
Sep 23, 2020Definitely a step up from last years rather disappointing inaugural season. While you're there are still some pretty forgettable episodes, most of them actually work pretty well as a Twilight Zone story. The show might never really reach the heights of the original series but the stories that work do work pretty well. They are even some pretty clever twists on classic sci-fi concepts. Which is pretty much all you can I ask for these days. While it is not an effects-heavy show, you do see the budget cuts that CBS probably prescribed for the season. Nevertheless if the show continues on this trajectory I do have hopes for a pretty good third season. However the creators should really think about limiting the runtime of the episodes. Even the good episodes of this season tend to feel very drawn out, even if they are just about 40 minutes in length.

Jul 31, 2020Lame storylines. Go watch black mirror
Jul 14, 2020I feel this rating is critics overcompensating for them overrating the garbage Season 1. Season 2 has some of the same flaws, but clearly worked to correct more of them and is by far the better season. I'd say unlike Season 1, which was worse than all three previous TZ runs, Season 2 is better than the 2000s series, though still not as good as the 80s series and the original.
Jul 06, 2020WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than season 1. i got through 4-5 eps in s1 and thought it was so shitty. this one actually captures the essence of the show and adds its own flair. i'm stopped mid episode 5 to write this...theyve' been so good. gives spine tingle i used to get from the original. Fun!
Jul 05, 2020Science Fiction really needs internal logic to hold the story together. Episodes are boring and demand a level of suspension of disbelief I can only describe as offensive. As a fan of SciFi I can see the inspiration for a lot of the episodes and everytime the source material was better.
Jul 02, 2020They need to revoke the use of the twilight zone name. Rod Serling would be revolted by the trip bearing its name.
