The first season of Jordan Peele's The Twilight Zone saw a new take on the classic story "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" with the episode "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet," with new photos from an upcoming episode of Season Two of the series confirming that we'll be getting a follow-up to the famous "To Serve Man" episode from the original series. The new episode, titled "You Might Also Like," recreates familiar beings from another planet, but the details of the episode's plot don't make the connection to the famous episode immediately apparent, though this follow-up episode is sure to deliver some unexpected twists and turns.

In "To Serve Man," a group of aliens lands on earth and, despite initial apprehension about the beings, humanity soon embraces the various gifts the species offers them as the travelers even promise to take select members of the population back to their home planet. In classic Twilight Zone fashion, the episode culminates with the reveal that an intergalactic tome, which borrows the name of the episode title, should be interpreted as a cookbook to best serve man to others, as opposed to being the best way to fulfill man's desires.

The Season Two sequel episode "follows stay-at-home housewife Mrs. Warren (Gretchen Mol) as she looks forward to acquiring the widely marketed 'Egg,' an enigmatic device that promises to make everything better for everyone forever. But further investigation soon reveals the unsavory truth about this mysterious product. Greta Lee also guest stars."

The episode was written and directed by Osgood Perkins, who delivered audiences Gretel & Hansel earlier this year.
