Created by Charlie Brooker, the anthology drama takes a dark, satirical look at society’s relationship with technology. Season three, which features Bryce Dallas Howard, Wyatt Russell, Alice Eve, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was just released last month.
In the interview, Harris addressed the popularity of the season three episode “San Junipero,” which explores the love story between two women in the 1980s [Warning: Spoilers Ahead!]:
It’d be nice wouldn’t it? It’d be fun to do a San Junipero sequel. But you have to remember that if there is a sequel, Charlie Brooker will be writing it. He’ll go all Black Mirror on it and he might not want to do two happy endings!”
He also revealed that the episode benefits from multiple viewings:
When you watch it for a second time, it’s incredible because there are so many hints. The challenge is that so many conversations make sense only in hindsight, but when you’re watching something you’re never watching it in hindsight. On the first run, they only slowly make sense. But when you go back, so many things the characters say are incredibly obvious. You’ll start to notice the little clues in most conversations. There’s a guy that chats Kelly up at the bar and he says something about how he has something wrong with his hip and how he should have put his money into computing. Suddenly you realize this must be a guy in his 70s. When you suddenly realize all of the people in this world are a different age.”
Black Mirror has already been renewed for a fourth season.
What do you think? Have you seen the “San Junipero” episode of Black Mirror? Do you want a sequel?
