Charlie Brooker’s twisted sci-fi anthology show Black Mirror has been one of the sickest things to hit UK TV in recent years. But because of the way British television works, we’ve only gotten seven episodes of it in four years. But since it’s been making waves in the US, Netflix has seen it and though “We should have that.” And now, they’ve confirmed they are going to be producing 12 new episodes, to start production in the UK this year.
“It’s all very exciting — a whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable,” Brooker said about the announcement. “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.”
Considering that the first ever episode predicted the British Prime Minister getting freaky with a pig, we’re slightly worried what this new series could lead to.
