Back in September, Netflix announced that they are making new episodes of the hit UK TV series Black Mirror, after striking a deal with series creator Charlie Brooker. The anthology series debuted in 2011 with three hour-long episodes, returning for its second season in 2013 with three more episodes, all centering on humanity's need for technology. During the streaming service's TCA summer tour presentation last month, Netflix revealed the show will debut October 21 with six new episodes, and today, we have the first four photos from two of those episodes.
Series creator/executive producer Charlie Brooker debuted the images on Twitter earlier today. Two of the photos are from the episode dubbed San Junipero, featuring stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis, and the remaining two photos from Nosedive, featuring Bryce Dallas Howard. San Junipero is directed by Owen Harris, while Nosedive was directed by Joe Wright, which also features Alice Eve and James Norton.
The other episodes in Black Mirror Season 3 are Shut Up and Dance, starring Jerome Flynn and Alex Lawther, directed by James Watkins, Men Against Fire, starring Michael Kelly, Malachi Kirby and Madeline Brewer, directed by Jakob Verbruggen, Hated in the Nation, starring Kelly MacDonald, directed by James Hawes and Playtest, starring Wyatt Russell and Hannah John-Kamen directed by Dan Trachtenberg. Netflix's official announcement last year revealed that the streaming service had ordered 12 episodes, with the remaining six likely representing Season 4 that will presumably debut sometime next year. With the debut of these photos, a new trailer may be right around the corner, so stay tuned.
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone - a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
No specific plot details were given for any of these new episodes yet, but with just over two months left until the new season premieres, hopefully we'll get new details soon. Stay tuned for the latest footage from these new new episodes of Black Mirror, before they debut this fall. In the meantime, check out the first photos from Season 3 below.
