Netflix’s drama series Black Mirror will return for a third season on Friday, October 21, it was announced today at the Television Critics Association summer session in Beverly Hills, CA.
The anthology series which first premiered in the UK on Britain’s Channel 4 and was then later picked up by the streaming giant, will return with six 1-hour episodes. If you haven’t watched any of the series, I definitely recommend checking out the first two seasons before October rolls around. Black Mirror is about technology and how it interacts with us in our everyday lives and how it could change and grow and become more involved like smart homes, implants and basically turning our world into Minority Report.
“Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.
