The Twilight Zone Season 3: Will CBS All Access renew the series?

The Twilight Zone Season 3: Will CBS All Access renew the series?

During the first season of The Twilight Zone, CBS All Access renewed the show about halfway through its run. However, Season 2 released all at once, so it might take longer to find out if The Twilight Zone Season 3 will be officially given the green light.

Unfortunately, the series has not become a critical darling like the streaming service may have hoped. Personally, I think Season 2 has been much stronger than the show’s first season, but CBS may have been anticipating more attention thanks to Jordan Peele’s involvement.

Fans do seem to be enjoying the show more than critics do, and ultimately if they tune in and give it the numbers it needs to succeed, then critical attention won’t matter much.

Thus far, CBS has not renewed the show, but they also haven’t canceled it. CBS All Access will also be undergoing a planned rebranding in the near future, will The Twilight Zone Season 3 fit into the new streaming service? At this point, it could go either way.

The Twilight Zone Season 3: When would it premiere?

If the series does manage to get a renewal, I doubt we’ll see the series premiere until at least August 2021. The new season already premiered a little later than the first season debuted last year, and the global pandemic may also further postpone a follow-up.

Depending on locations chosen for a potential new season, production shutdowns could affect when the show can start filming again, pushing a possible Season 3 back even further, maybe even into the fall or winter of next year.
