Find out what else you need to know about The Twilight Zone Season 2 right here. 

Those Two Surprise Cameos in The Twilight Zone Finale, Explained

It is now available to stream. CBS All Access released all 10 episodes of The Twilight Zone Season 2 on Thursday, June 25.

The first trailer built the mystery. The first trailer for The Twilight Zone Season 2 (above) was filled with creepy oddities, including a town full of people who freeze in place for "world maintenance" and a soothsayer who seems to disappear from his tarot reading shop.
