Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone changed the anthology series—and television—forever. Airing for five seasons on CBS between 1959 and 1964, each episode presented a standalone story where its protagonists were met with disturbing or supernatural circumstances, thus, entering “the Twilight Zone.” Its stories were renowned for their shocking endings and lingering moral lessons that its audience was left to chew on. Although the show was primarily science fiction, The Twilight Zone also dipped into paranormal and futuristic events that often skewed its stories toward horror and fantasy.
The series launched the careers of younger actors and also featured established stars. Serling was an executive producer who also narrated the series and wrote 92 of the show’s 156 installments. Serling’s monologues at the beginning and end of every episode became legends in their own right, as he explained how and why the characters had been met with such mysterious circumstances.
The Twilight Zone is often recognized as one of the most influential anthology series of all time, helping shape other shows like Tales from the Crypt and Netflix’s buzzworthy Black Mirror. Here’s how to watch The Twilight Zone streaming online.
