In six episodes (and one Christmas episode with Jon Hamm!) from 2011 to 2014, Black Mirror became a cult favorite. It’s a dark British sci-fi anthology that critiques, among other things, the future of technology and society as a whole. It’s weird and smart enough yet polished enough to never make it on a major U.S. network dominated by reality competition shows.
But Black Mirror is a critical darling and became an Internet phenomenon, at least in the U.S., when Netflix picked up streaming rights for the existing episodes. That wasn’t all Netflix had in mind, though. It turns out the rumors are true, and Netflix has announced it will release 12 new episodes of Black Mirror as its next original series, with current show runners Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones.
