The third season of Black Mirror hits Netflix on Friday, which means we can all look forward to a weekend of gradually feeling more and more queasy about the very technology we’re using to watch the show. And because Netflix knows Black Mirror fans will eventually come out of that miserable binge with a taste for still more disturbing tales about the intersection of technology and human nature, they’re already getting to work on season 4.
Jodie Foster has been set to direct an episode of Black Mirror season 4, which will star Rosemarie DeWitt. And while we wait for that intriguing installment to come together, Netflix has released a new featurette to whet your appetite for season 3. Read More »

Black Mirror returns to Netflix on October 21 with its third season and I couldn’t be more excited and horrified. Charlie Brooker‘s technology-centric anthology series is the closest thing we have to a modern version of The Twilight Zone, a show that blends science fiction and horror and satire and tragedy into a delicious, mortifying, and addictive stew. Almost every episode so far has chilled me to my core and I love it to pieces and I love that a fourth season is already in the works.
But while we’re waiting, how about we all settle in and watch a pair of new Black Mirror season 3 featurettes that explore the concepts of two new Black Mirror episodes?

It’s been an agonizing wait, but we are officially two weeks away from the third season Black Mirror. Charlie Brooker‘s science fiction anthology series, which tackles the horrors of the internet age through ambitious and frequently horrifying one-off stories, is set to arrive on Netflix on October 21, 2016. Heck, a new trailer debuted earlier today, and it looks as good as ever. So plan accordingly.
But that’s not all the Black Mirror news for today! It seems that, in true Netflix fashion, a fourth season is already in the pipeline.

I know we’re all drowning in fall TV right now, but you’ll definitely want to make room for this one on your to-do list. Netflix has just unveiled the first trailer for Black Mirror season 3, which arrives with six new episodes later this month.
Though it’s been a few years since the last episode aired, based on the two episodes I saw at TIFF, creator Charlie Brooker has not lost his edge. The new episodes span different genres and tones, but as ever, they’re all linked by a shared interest in the intersection between technology and human nature. This season features episodes directed by Joe Wright and Dan Trachtenberg, among others, and stars including Bryce Dallas Howard, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis, and Wyatt Russell. Watch the Black Mirror season 3 trailer below. Read More »

It’s been nearly two years since the last episode of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker‘s tech dystopia anthology series, and over three years since the last proper full season aired. Naturally, then, news that Netflix had commissioned 12 more episodes was met with a combination of excitement and trepidation.
On the one hand, Black Mirror is second to none when it comes to chronicling the way humanity and technology intersect in 2016. On the other, we’ve seen tons of shows renewed after extended hiatuses, only to return as shells of their former selves. Could the third season of Black Mirror live up to the greatness of the first two? Based on the two episodes that screened at TIFF, “San Junipero” and “Nosedive,” the answer seems to be yes.

Netflix announced last year that it was picking up Black Mirror for a third season, and last month revealed that the new episodes would premiere this fall. But as we say in the age of Instagram and Facebook, pics or it didn’t happen. So showrunner Charlie Brooker has now shared the first Black Mirror season 3 images for us to enjoy. And some of them look surprisingly… retro? The series has thrown some pretty shocking twists at us over the years, but even we did not see a 1980s episode coming.
That’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis up there in those fetching ’80s fashions, and still other photos offer our first look at Bryce Dallas Howard in an episode directed by Joe Wright. Check out the new Black Mirror season 3 images below. Read More »

October is traditionally the month for scaring yourself silly with horror movies, but the most chilling tales you’ll see this fall may well be on television. Netflix has just announced a fall release date for the third season of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker‘s highly acclaimed anthology series about how the combination of advanced technology and human nature is basically a recipe for self-destruction.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Black Mirror is already a perverse and pitch-black riff on The Twilight Zone, so why shouldn’t it steal directors from a film series that also seems to be borrowing a thing or two from Rod Serling’s iconic television show? 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg will helm an episode of the popular science fiction anthology series’ third season, which was wooed away from the U.K.’s Channel 4 by Netflix last year. This certainly feels like good news, as Trachtenberg is the kind of director who should be able to make Black Mirror‘s blend of sci-fi, horror, and perverse satire sing.
