Charlie Brooker’s ‘Black Mirror’ To Become Netflix Series
Charlie Brooker’s psychological thriller series Black Mirror is set to become a Netflix series, Radio Times reports.
According to Radio Times, Netflix has agreed a deal with Brooker and his production company, House of Tomorrow, to make new episodes of the drama. The online streaming service has already made previous episodes of the series available on its service in the past.
Black Mirror originally aired on Channel 4 in 2011, with creator Brooker noting “each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they’re all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes’ time if we’re clumsy.”
More recently, a Christmas special aired in 2014, which starred Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm in three mini-stories, including one where people could block one another as they do on social media.
While we’re excited for new episodes of a fantastic series, we can’t help but worry for the state of our mental health if we were to marathon episodes of the gripping, thought-provoking series. This might be one series to avoid binge-watching on Netflix.
