What’s next for Black Mirror? Recently, creator Charlie Brooker spoke with Deadline about the Netflix TV show’s upcoming fourth season.
The UK anthology drama features stories that explore modern society’s relationship with technology. Season three, which premiered in October 2016, stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Mackenzie Davis, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
In the interview, Brooker revealed that season four of Black Mirror will be completely different from what fans have seen before:
The one thing I can say is that it’s the same, in that it’s completely different, again. I don’t think any of them are the same as any stories we’ve done before, and genre-wise, they’re mighty different as well. I think length-wise, there’s going to be more variance. That’s so boring, though—I wish I had a better revelation. [laughs]”
Brooker didn’t mention much else, but he did say the new season of the Netflix series will be “quite out there”:
I can’t really say much else, except I think there’s quite a lot of stuff that’s quite out there. I don’t know if I’ve lost touch with reality, or what. But then what often tends to happen is I think, Oh my God, this is completely and utterly farfetched, and then reality catches up. So I was consciously trying to cast further afield, I think, in terms of what stories we’re doing. And partly also because I think I was so terrified about the state of the world, I thought, I’m going to entertain myself by having some kooky thoughts.”
