The episode, titled “The Wunderkind,” will feature the three celebrated performers in roles and a plot that is currently being kept under wraps. The three stars join a cast that also includes Adam Scott (Big Little Lies), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) and Sanaa Lathan (Nappily Ever After), whose roles are also being kept a secret.

Cho, who is well-known for his early success with the stoner comedy series Harold & Kumar, has taken a more dramatic approach with his roles in the past few years, starring in the J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek franchise as Hikaru Sulu, Fox’s horror series Sleepy Hollow and The Exorcist and this year’s thriller Searching, which scored rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, was a box office hit and was a milestone as it was the first mainstream Hollywood thriller to be headlined by an Asian-American actor.

Tolman saw her big break in 2015 when she starred in the FX adaptation of the Coen Brothers’ classic film, Fargo, for which she was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance, while also starring in the psychological thriller The Gift and horror-comedy Krampus, both of which came out the same year. She was most recently seen in the western comedy The Sisters Brothers alongside Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) and John C. Reilly (Holmes & Watson) and the Hulu horror anthology Castle Rock.

Tremblay has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after children actors following his breakout performance in the acclaimed 2015 drama Room, for which he won numerous awards, and has since starred in a variety of films from the infamous flops The Book of Henry and Shut In, while also having starred in the well-received dramedy Wonder alongside Julia Roberts (Homecoming) and Owen Wilson (Cars 3) and the action sci-fi blockbuster The Predator.

Previously it was announced that Peele will serve as the show’s new host, making him the third person to host the series. Previous versions were hosted by legendary writer/producer Rod Sterling for the original 1959-1964 version and Forest Whitaker for the 2002 version.

Jordan Peele’s Twilight Zone series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films. Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg, and Marco Ramirez will serve as executive producers for the series and collaborate on the premiere episode. Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon will also serve as executive producers.

The original The Twilight Zone took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. Created by Rod Serling, it was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama could not. In 1983 Steven Spielberg produced a big budget anthology film version, Twilight Zone: The Movie, directed by Spielberg, John Landis, Joe Dante and George Miller. The show was revived by CBS in the 1980s and ran for three seasons, helmed by the likes of William Friedkin, Atom Egoyan and Wes Craven. It was revived again on UPN and hosted by Forest Whitaker in 2002 for one season. Another revival was attempted in 2012 with Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past), who was to develop, executive produce and direct.
