Charlie Brooker's sci-fi series Black Mirror is making a comeback as a Netflix show. The streaming giant will produce new episodes alongside Brooker's production company.
The show which explores the dark and troubling aspects of technology, has been a word-of-mouth hit since it launched in December 2014. Each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality.
Netflix has already shown episodes of the drama, which first aired on Channel 4, in the US and has now signed a deal with Brooker's House Of Tomorrow production company, which will enable it to make multiple new episodes.
Brooker, who is currently writing scripts for a new run of the C4-originated drama, already has his eye on the multiplexes. In January, the writer and broadcaster revealed he would love to take the show to the big screen.
"I'd love to make a film ultimately," he told RadioTimes.com. "There's been quite a few episodes [of Black Mirror] where we thought 'God, you could do a feature-length version of this quite easily'. White Bear, 15 million merits come to mind – Be Right Back as well actually. There were lots of ideas we had to leave out.
"It just depends on it being the right sort of story. Usually 45 minutes, once you knock the ads out, feels about the right length for those sort of stories."
