The wait is over. Season 2 of Jordan Peele's reboot of The Twilight Zone — think a slightly less dark Black Mirror — is now available on CBS All Access . All 10 episodes dropped at the same time, so you can get your binge on.

Peele once again serves as narrator for the anthology, which tackles all kinds of issues through all kinds of genres, through the vehicle of an hourlong thriller. Like the original 1959 series, it not-so-subtly address current social issues, but it's not overly preachy about it.
