With a whole wealth of top film and TV talent in front of and behind the camera, we’ve been excited for Netflix’s expanded third season of Black Mirror for a while now. With this in mind, we finally have a first glimpse of footage via this trailer – and we have to say, we’re impressed.
From what we’ve seen, the new season will contain everything we’ve come to love about the show: a familiar yet somehow not-quite-right future; technology being mishandled by hapless humans, and plenty of tech-based horror. It’s clearly going to be a blast.
Anyways, you can watch the first trailer and read the official synopsis for Black Mirror: Season 3 below:
In this world, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s real… Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror returns on Netflix October 21.
Created and written by Brooker, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease with the modern world and each stand-alone episode is 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. The series has been recognized with an international Emmy Award, a Peabody Award, a Rose D’Or and been nominated for a BAFTA® award.
The third season features an all star cast including Bryce Dallas Howard, Alice Eve, James Norton, Cherry Jones, Wyatt Russell, Alex Lawther, Jerome Flynn, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis, Michael Kelly, Malachi Kirby, Kelly McDonald, Faye Marsay and others. Joe Wright (Atonement), Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane), James Watkins (The Woman in Black), Owen Harris, Jacob Verbruggen (London Spy) and James Hawes direct. Rashida Jones and Michael Schur served as writers on “Nosedive.” Annabel Jones serves as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside Brooker.
Black Mirror: Season 3 will be available to stream on Netflix from 21 October 2016. For all the latest TV news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
