Black Mirror on Netflix

Black Mirror Headed to Netflix With 12 All-New (Presumably Crazy) Episodes

It’s official: Netflix is taking a crack at Black Mirror.

The streaming giant has ordered 12 all-new episodes of the acclaimed, mind-bending British anthology series, TVLine has confirmed.

Series creator Charlie Brooker will pen the episodes and serve as exec producer and co-showrunner alongside Annabel Jones (the pair oversaw Black Mirror‘s previous seven episodes, which aired on Channel 4 in the UK).

“It’s all very exciting — a whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable,” Brooker said in a statement. “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.”

It was Netflix’s acquisition of Black Mirror‘s original seven self-contained episodes that helped propel the dystopian sci-fi franchise into the international consciousness. Jon Hamm’s appearance in the 2014 Christmas special, not to mention a 2015 Peabody Award, also boosted the show’s profile.

A release date for the 12 new episodes is TBD. Watch a teaser below:

      Netflix pickups are great and the number of episodes don’t matter there. You can watch them all at once or spread them out. Only problem with binge watching: having to wait for more.

    My brother will never forgive me for making him watch the episode about the Prime Minister and the pig.

    Speaking of the “Reboots and Revivals Wish List” – FOREVER really needs to come back, somewhere. I’ve asked Netflix to save it as they did Longmire; also have talked to Amazon Prime and Hulu.
    It is an internationally known and loved series with LOTS more stories to tell. After all, Dr Henry Morgan has been alive for 200 years, in England, on the Continent, and in America. SURELY some of his adventures are worth seeing!
    The cast is amazing and the father-son relationship is obvious and entertaining. I know that Alana is now on another show, but it takes a while to script and she can finish her current gig in time to return to FOREVER.
    The only other shows I would truly love to see again are THE MENTALIST and PERCEPTION…I would be thrilled to see Patrick as a daddy and how they raise the child..the show had a decent ending, but offered more storylines to be explored. The cancellation of PERCEPTION was abrupt and unsatisfying. I do not believe it was anticipated, so his future is still up in the air. I did not like it and need for it to be followed up with further explanations. I used to take notes when he was teaching! I want MORE,

    Hopefully they will add the Christmas special sometime soon.

    “Be Right Back” and “White Bear” in the second series/season are the best in television anywhere/anytime since grandfather Twilight Zone. Of course it gets new life.
