A Fourth Season of Black Mirror Is Coming Our Way
Black Mirror season three is fast approaching, and it's already getting a ton of positive buzz. An episode will screen at New York Comic Con tomorrow, but until then, we have the amazing news that Netflix already has a fourth season in the works.


Executive producer Annabel Jones discussed Netflix's acquisition of the show at the London Film Festival (via Radio Times), and in an aside, alluded to pre-production starting on another series:

Opening quote
When you're ready to do the next series you do [it]. Thankfully Netflix loved the show, stepped in and commissioned six films. So that allows us to play out on a bigger canvas, and take more risks, explore worlds without destabilising the Black Mirror sensibility. It's great. And we've got another season coming up too.
Closing quote

This is no surprise, considering how big of a success both Black Mirror and Netflix Originals have been. Most likely, the production won't be 100% official until the season is out and the viewing numbers are in, but it makes sense that Netflix would feel safe to have initial talks based on the positive reception of early screeners. Let's hope that the third season is as popular as it seems poised to be, and that we'll be seeing more seasons for a very, very long time.
