Definitely original stories. Not necessary to remake any from the original series --been there done that with both the 80s and 2002 versions. Maybe there are some Rod Serling stories that were not made into TZ episodes that can be adapted. Otherwise find actual writers, excellent ones, to develop stories that are reminiscent of the original series, not what modern times "thinks" of what the Twilight Zone actually was.

LB,

Original would be best "what aint broken..." Great points.

I still would like to see some adaptions a few older episodes, as well, so I picked Both.

Well, I think many of us would want to see a ton of new stories.........

But, with the way things are today in Hollywood, there's a good chance that the majority of the newer material we may get is fairly bad.
While I hope for new material, it wouldn't bother me if it was a good mix of new stuff, and a few remakes tossed in also.

No need for a reboot for me, although I would like to see the ff.

Re-shoot the missing episodes of Doomwatch (hopefully using the same script, actors who look like and behave like the original cast, and the same set design and setting), then create a fourth and final season with the same type of writing and dialogue. Perhaps an over-arching story amid episodes (like that of X-Files) can be resolved at the end.

Create a few more episodes to finish off the UFO series following No. 1, although some improvements can be done for the special effects. Do the same for Sapphire and Steel and Space: 1999 (but retain the original theme).

Both please. Good, new ideas and reimagine the weaker original episodes.

Don't want a reboot, but if there is, I want to see an emphasis on good, talented writers, rather than big name guest stars, as was the emphasis on the 2002-2003 series.
