From Netflix and creator Charlie Brooker (Dead Set) comes the dark sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror. Series 1, 2, 3 and a Christmas special are currently available on Netflix with an upcoming fourth season of 6 episodes to debut exclusively on the streaming service December 29, 2017.
Originally airing on Channel 4 in the UK, Black Mirror is being hailed as our generation’s Twilight Zone. It’s an anthology series with stand-alone episodes that warn us of the dangers in advanced technology.
Charlie Brooker is a genius. He’s written every episode of Black Mirror and they’re all brilliant. Some more than others, but none have been misfires. I’m really stoked for the fourth season to see what directors like Jodie Foster and Colm McCarthy can do with his scripts… Black Mirror is one of the best series on television and hands down the best anthology show since Tales From The Crypt. Ring in the new year with the most twisted tales imaginable when Black Mirror debuts December 29, 2017 with Season 4!
