Renewed: Black Mirror

2015-09-26_0130

Netflix has closed a deal for new episodes of Black Mirror, the acclaimed anthology series from Charlie Brooker.

There will be 12 new episodes of the satire, with Brooker having already started writing the series.

Brooker and Annabel Jones — who created the series and executive produced its first seven episodes — will serve as showrunners.

“It’s all very exciting — a whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable. Netflix connects us with a global audience so that we can create bigger, stranger, more international and diverse stories than before, whilst maintaining that Black Mirror feel. I just hope none of these new story ideas come true,” Brooker said.

This week Brits were stunned to hear David Cameron put a ‘private part of his anatomy’ into the mouth of a dead pig as part of a society initiation during his University days. It echoed an episode in which a fictional prime minister was ordered by kidnappers to have sex with a pig in return for the safe return of a princess.

Production is due to begin in late 2015 in the U.K.

    This is great news as I really enjoyed the first 2 series. Fantastic that Netflix have committed to 12 eps, which is twice the number currently made. Which reminds me – I haven’t seen last year’s Xmas special with Jon Hamm yet.

    As soon as I read that story about David Cameron I immediately thought of the very first Black Mirror episode.

    • Personally I’m not so sure 12 eps is a good thing – while I won’t say any of the regular episodes have been _bad_, they’re wildly inconsistent. The second ep in both series, and the Christmas ep, are by far the best and are outstanding TV.

      (Correction – allow me to recant a little. I just remembered the ‘Waldo’ ep, which was unwatchable.)
