Ready to enter the fifth dimension? We have the Twilight Zone New Year's Marathon schedule right here.

The Twilight Zone 60th anniversary fathom events screenings

The Twilight Zone is as timeless as infinity. In this dimension, 2019 was a special year for the iconic sci-fi anthlogy as it marked the series’ 60th anniversary. We may be entering a new decade, but Rod Serling will be there to greet us once more with the annual New Year’s Twilight Zone marathon on SYFY.

The marathon begins on Tuesday, Dec. 31st at 6:00 a.m. with “One For The Angels” and concludes on Thursday, Jan. 2nd at 3:30 a.m. with “A Piano in the House.” 

This time of year is always special in The Twilight ZoneRod Serling was born on Christmas Day in 1924. The New Year’s Marathon is just one of the many ways Serling’s legacy lives on. Earlier this year, his daughter, Anne, wrote in an op-ed for Den of Geek about her father and the anniverary of a series that will live on forever: 

Writing was what my father believed in, what he was passionate about, what he thought had a chance to save society. In 1968, when the country was in the midst of the divisiveness and turmoil of the civil rights and anti-war movements that were tearing it apart, my dad ended a speech at the Library of Congress in Washington by saying, “So long as men and women write what they want, then all of the other freedoms—all of them—will remain intact. And it is then that writing becomes an act of conscience, a weapon of truth, an article of faith.”

The Twilight Zone marathon has become a holiday tradition in itself. We wrote more about the history of the marathon here
