If the mere mention of The Twilight Zone gives you chills, we don’t blame you. Rod Serling‘s 1950s sci-fi series made the question of “What if?” come true.

For instance, “What if a stopwatch could stop time?” like in the episode “A Kind of Stopwatch,” or “What if you run into yourself at the bus station?” as seen in “Mirror Image.”

Typically the answers were alarming.

There’s a new revival of the series in the works, and this time around, while the outcome may still be unsettling, viewers will play a role in which way the story will go, reports The Wrap.

CBS is teaming up with the digital video company Interlude to bring viewers a series similar to that of a choose-your-own-adventure story.

CBS and Interlude released a joint statement, describing the forthcoming series as an “original interactive project,” where viewers will be able to “step in and become a part of the story.”

The interactive series is expected to retain the elements of the original series, but also allow viewers to “change and adapt the story based on what he or she feels,” and “return repeatedly and have a different viewing experience each time,” according to CBS/Interlude.

The sci-fi series premiered in the 1950s, with two revivals airing in the 1980s and early 2000s. In 1983, a film adaptation hit the big screen, with four directors, including Steven Spielberg (Bridge of Spies), Joe Dante (Legends of Tomorrow), John Landis (Psych), and George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road).

If you’re feeling a little nostalgic, the original series is currently available via Amazon Prime or Hulu, kicking off with the first episode, “Where is Everybody.”

The title alone is eerie.

Is this something you could get into?
