Charlie Brooker And Co. To Start Production On New Run Of Black Mirror Next Month

Charlie Brooker is said to have coined three new episodes of his Twilight Zone-inspired social satire Black Mirror, and they’re to go into production as soon as next month. There’s no indication yet what kind of ideas Brooker will be engaging with this time, and I doubt there will be too many clues spilled ahead of the shows being ready to air.

I’m surprised that Brooker has written all three scripts, if this is indeed true, as I expected plenty of his peers to want a ride in this particular saddle.

We spoke to Brooker around the launch of the first series. He talked about the appeal of making an anthology and the appeal of uncomfortable stories:

What I always liked about those things [anthology shows] was that you didn’t know exactly what you were going to get but you thought you were going to like it. It was like getting a nice box of chocolates… I sound like Forrest fucking Gump. But you didn’t know quite what you were going to get. Often with those things, they were quite uncomfortable but that was part of the enjoyment.

I certainly enjoy a bit of discomfort from the TV.

Here’s hoping Black Mirror continues to be relevant and, as far as possible, fresh.
