What’s in store for Black Mirror? Recently, creator Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the Netflix TV show.
The UK anthology drama features stories that explore modern society’s relationship with technology. The season four cast includes Rosemarie Dewitt, Jesse Plemmons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, Andrea Riseborough, Letitia Wright, and Maxine Peake.
In the interview, Brooker teased season four of Black Mirror, saying it will be very different from previous seasons:
We’re trying not to repeat ourselves, basically. So it’s different in that we’re tackling worlds, tones, themes and looks we haven’t done before. Durations we haven’t done before. Jodie Foster’s episode has the feeling of an indie movie, I can say that without saying literally anything else.”
Later, Jones and Brooker agreed that they’d do another six-episode season, but if Netflix orders more episodes they might have to decline:
There’s always a point in the middle of the production where we’ll have four or five of them live at any given point and I’ll be writing a script for the next one while doing rewrites on the previous one. There’s a point in which you go, “I can’t keep all these six stories in my head.”
Season four of Black Mirror is expected to premiere on Netflix later this year.
