Last year, we reported that Netflix had PICKED UP THE RIGHTS to the critically acclaimed British anthology series Black Mirror. If you’re unfamiliar, the show could probably most closely be compared to The Twilight Zone. In essence, you have a series of unrelated episodes that explore different themes, and are very often (though not exclusively) set in dystopian futures.
There were originally two three episode seasons. October 21 will see the arrival of six new episodes of the series on the Netflix streaming service.
In anticipation of this, showrunner Charlie Brooker has shared four photos from the upcoming season.
The first two come from the Owen Harris-directed episode entitled “San Junipero,” and feature Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis, pictured below. As you can see, this episode has a real 1980s vibe going for it, something that seems to be in nowadays.
The next two photos come from the Joe Wright-directed episode entitled “Nosedive.” In addition to having Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna) in the director’s chair, this episode is written by Rashida Jones and Mike Shur from Parks and Recreation, and it also stars Jurassic World and Pete’s Dragon leading lady Bryce Dallas Howard. Compared to the neon-plastered shots from above, this one definitely has a much more muted feel to it.
What do you think of these new photos? Do they get you excited for the upcoming season of the series? I know I’m personally looking forward to seeing what 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg brings to the table in his episode this season. Let us know your thoughts down below!
