We have been away from the world of “Black Mirror” for far too long and Netflix is the best for bringing it back. And now they have released the trailer for the upcoming third season and it looks amazing.
In the trailer, we get a look at the six new episodes of the anthology series coming October 21 on the streaming service.
The third season has lined up an impressive cast for what looks like a chilling new set of tales. The cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Kelly, Mackenzie Davis, Jerome Flynn and Malachi Kirby. These new episodes include one that focuses on a world in which all interactions are ranked, a war story, a videogame thriller and a coming-of-age story.
Black Mirror returns on Friday, Oct. 21 on Netflix. Until then, check out the trailer above.
After it was announced that Netflix would pick up the dystopian science fiction series, “Black Mirror,” fans have been waiting for any news of its season 3 premiere. Last week, Netflix answered with the release of several photos from the upcoming season.
In one set of photos from the episode titled “San Junipero” we see Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis looking perfectly 80’s glam. Netflix described this episode as ’80s-centric, and revealed that it would be directed by Owen Harris.
The other set comes from the episode “Nosedive.” The episode was written by Rashida Jones and Mike Schur (of Parks and Recreation) and directed by Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement). This episode stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Alice Eve, and James Norton. “Nosedive” is “a social satire about identity in the social-media age. It’s kind of like a cheerful pastel nightmare, that story.”
“Black Mirror” is one of the best science fiction anthology shows out there and Netflix realizes that too. The series that predicts our darkest and most dangerous technological advances and fears into hour episodes is being picked up by the streaming service.
The first two seasons of “Black Mirror” premiered and broadcasted on Channel 4 in the UK and each featured only 3 episodes. There was also a Christmas Special that aired in 2014. However, the third season has been picked up by Netflix and will featured an impressive 12 episodes.
Season 3 will premiere on Netflix air in 2016 but there is no date of when. Co-creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones will stay on as the show’s executive producers.
“It’s all very exciting — a whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable,” said Brooker. “I just hope none of these new story ideas come true.”
Along with the upcoming third season, Robert Downey Jr. has optioned one of those episodes, “The Entire History of You,” for adaptation into a feature film and may move forward with it via Warner Bros.
