Here to remind you all that Oscar victor and creator of nightmares Jordan Peele is still amusing is.

Why it's must-watch TV: Not only did Jordan Peele create this sci-fi satire, but Weird City is the first good reason to actually shell out the extra cash and subscribe to YouTube Premium.

In a near-future dystopian city divided by "The Line", the impoverished live separate from the high-tech, sleek urbanites. One such disastrous experiment includes a computer program that matches people up with their life partners. Think Black Mirror but way funnier.

Weird City centers around two groups of people, the Above the Line (The Haves) and Below the Line (The Have Nots), ruled by the odd and mysterious Dr. Negari, as the middle class has vanished entirely. While the episodes will all tell different stories, there will be one constant in the form of Dr. Negari.


Awkwafina, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Steven Yeun, Laverne Cox, Dylan O'Brien, Gillian Jacobs, and many more.

Peele teamed up with Key and Peele writer Charlie Sanders to pen Weird City, which is set in a near-future metropolis called Weird. WEIRD CITY captures the unease of modern urban living, in a freakish and peculiar lens. Peele's highly anticipated sophomore feature Us hits theaters in March, while next month will see the release of Lorena, a four-part documentary on Lorena Bobbitt that he produced for Amazon.

The six-episode anthology series will also show off Peele's sci-fi muscles, which will be on full flex when he executive produces, hosts, and narrates the upcoming Twilight Zone reboot, in which Yeun will also appear.

Along with the trailer, the upcoming show's premiere date was also revealed and, in somewhat of a pleasant surprise, we won't have to wait too long for it as it will arrive on February 13.
