The 34-year-old actor will appear in the fourth episode entitled “The Traveler” in the lead role, with the only plot details describing the episode as following two police officers and the mysterious titular character.

Yeun, who broke out in the long-running AMC horror series The Walking Dead, has found large success in the feature industry in the years following his departure from the series, with appearances in the acclaimed Netflix adventure film Okja and the action-horror Mayhem in 2017, as well as in the wildly-raved indie comedy Sorry to Bother You alongside Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta) and the South Korean mystery drama Burning, which was submitted as the country’s Best Foreign Film for the upcoming Oscars.

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.
