Netflix has ordered 12 new episodes of the anthology series “Black Mirror,” the streaming service announced Friday.
The series will be executive produced by creator Charlie Brooker as well as Annabel Jones, who were executive producers for company House of Tomorrow on the original seven episodes that enthralled TV viewers.
Production is set to begin toward the end of the year, but no premiere date for its international rollout in all Netflix territories outside the UK and Ireland has been decided yet.
Each episode in the series, written by Brooker, is a stand-alone episode that explores themes dealing with contemporary techno-paranoia. “Black Mirror” has won an international Emmy, a Peabody, a Rose D’Or and was nominated for a BAFTA award.
“It’s all very exciting — a whole new bunch of ‘Black Mirror’ episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable,” Brooker said in a statement. “Netflix connects us with a global audience so that we can create bigger, stranger, more international and diverse stories than before, whilst maintaining that ‘Black Mirror’ feel. I just hope none of these new story ideas come true.”
