The Twilight Zone has set its season two stars. The CBS All Access reinterpretation of the sci-fi classic from Jordan Peele has released the complete casting for its upcoming 10-episode sophomore installment, which will debut this summer. 

Kylie Bunbury, Sky Ferreira, Topher Grace, David Krumholtz, Greta Lee, Thomas Lennon, Natalie Martinez, Brandon Jay McLaren, Gretchen Mol, Paula Newsome, Tawny Newsome, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Paul F. Tompkins and Damon Wayans Jr. were confirmed by the streaming platform on Wednesday. 

They join Morena Baccarin, Colman Domingo, Ethan Embry, Jenna Elfman, Tavi Gevinson, Tony Hale, Abbie Hern, Gillian Jacobs, Sophia Macy, Joel McHale, Christopher Meloni, Billy Porter, Jimmi Simpson and Daniel Sunjata who all were among the new cast members first announced in January, during the winter Television Critics Association press tour.

Peele, who hosts, narrates and executive produces the current iteration of The Twilight Zone, wrote an episode for the second season, titled “Downtime.” Baccarin, Domingo and Hale will appear in that hour. 

In the new Twilight Zone, socially relevant themes and issues such as celebrity, fame, police brutality, racial profiling and toxic masculinity are dissected with a fine-toothed comb and garnished with Peele's trademark twist.
