Netflix Is Producing New Black Mirror Episodes

When we reported back in January that US Netflix was planning to remake Charlie Brooker's excellent dystopian sci-fi show Black Mirror for the US audience, we were met with an eloquent rebuttal:

But it now seems we were sort of close to the truth.

Netflix is officially on board to make a 12-episode third season of the series with Brooker and Annabel Jones onboard to develop the show. Brooker is also said to be working on the stories and scripts already. The new episodes are "scheduled to begin production in late 2015", and while Netflix will pick up the series for US distribution, the details of who will be handling the rights in the UK and Ireland are "still being determined".

"It's all very exciting - a whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable," said Brooker. "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."

First aired in 2011, there have now been seven episodes, all produced by Channel 4 - three series and a Christmas special which aired last December, featuring Jon Hamm. Who knows what guest stars they'll have lined up for the new episodes - we're sure Charlie will tell us soon, though we're not asking him in case we get shouted at again.
