Charlie Brooker'sBlack Mirror is headed back to Channel 4 for a second series, and soon. Here's the first still to be released, showing Hayley Atwell and... a blue glowing device of some kind.
A couple of weeks back, Atwell tweeted:
But dates may have changed. Brooker himself has tweeted tonight that the second series will be starting in "weeks rather than months."
Very excited to be in Black Mirror written by Charlie Brooker on C4 in March. Smart writing...

The actual content of the episodes is still secret, though we can likely expect the same satirical sci-fi as the first series, I'm sure. The individual episode titles don't give too many clues:The above image was published to promote a BFI preview of the new series. If we assume they'd preview episode one, though that's not necessarily a given, and that Brooker gave the titles in order, which is also might not be the case, then this is an image from Be Right Back.
Which makes me speculate, perhaps crazily, about the device in the image above. Is that a recording of a personality? Do you see how I joined the dots?
We'll find out soon.
In further Brooker TV news, he's also taken a stab at the schedule for his Sky show, the dysfunctional detective parody,A Touch of Cloth.Easter and then August Bank Holiday? Not impossible.
We hope to bring you more on Black Mirror as we get closer to broadcast.
