Cue the creepy music and consider the following, TV Fanatics: The Twilight Zone may be returning to primetime.

According to Deadline insiders, director Bryan Singer (X-Men) has finalized a deal to produce a new version of the classic series for CBS TV Studios.

Many details must still be worked out - such as permission from the Rod Serling estate, along with a writer for the reboot - but all signs point to CBS developing the show along with Singer, considering CBS TV Studios only delivers programs for that network and The CW.

The original Twilight Zone aired on CBS from 1959-1964; it was then brought back for a four year run in 1985, with Forest Whitaker hosting a one-season version on UPN in 2002.

Singer's last involved on the small screen centered around Mockingbird Lane, a re-imagining of The Munsters on NBC that only aired as a Halloween special.
