Black Mirror - Season 2

After five seasons, one Christmas special and one innovative interactive movie, Black Mirror has grown into one of the biggest shows on Netflix since the streaming platform nabbed the rights from UK television network Channel 4 for season three onwards.

Black Mirror - Season 2


The anthology series began its life on Channel 4 in the UK for its first two seasons before Netflix picked it up and produced three additional seasons plus an interactive special. The show is helmed by Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, who works with Netflix now exclusively under their Brokes & Bones banner.

Black Mirror went quiet again until May 2022, when Variety reported that a deal has been reached and season 6 was in active-development at Netflix (Banijay and Netflix declined to comment on their story).

There's an enjoyable Creepshow vibe to this trio of horror tales, though each segment felt like a runner-up idea for a full episode. Also, by the time this episode aired at the end of season 4, the show's "people trapped in a digital world" trope was wearing thin. Still, who can forget the gleeful existential horror of "monkey needs a hug!"

A complex, brainy show's most simplistic story: A woman (Maxine Peake) chased by a robotic "dog." "Metalhead" is a black-and-white post-apocalyptic blast from start to finish, full of dark humor and a scarily plausible robotic villain that's like BB-8 crossed with a xenomorph. Note to Netflix: "The Walking Dead with robots" isn't a terrible idea idea for spin-off series.

After Kenny is recorded pleasuring himself by unknown hackers, he is blackmailed into performing a series of dangerous tasks to keep the video from being leaked. Not only is the video eventually released anyway, but it's also revealed Kenny is a pedophile. The episode is relentless with its nonstop disturbing plotlines and is guaranteed to leave a sour taste in viewers' mouths.

When Stefan visits Tuckersoft at the start of the movie he's starstruck. In the background, we see a poster for one of Colin's latest games, Metl Hedd. This is a homophone for Metalhead which is episode 5 of Black Mirror's season 4 which features some killer robotic dogs. The poster is of killer robots, creating a similar tone.

Each episode in the anthology series follows seemingly average people as their lives are twisted and manipulated by advanced technology. And with five seasons under its belt, the critically acclaimed show has already featured many stars, from popular singers to famed actors.

Michael Kelly is best known for his portrayal of Doug Stamper on the political drama "House of Cards." On the episode "Men Against Fire" from season three of "Black Mirror," Kelly plays a military psychologist.

Look at you. Glued to your chair, eyeballs helplessly fixated on your intoxicating, mesmerizing computer screen, the black mirror through which you view the world around you. You've spent countless hours assigning meaningless labels to places that aren't real and people you will never meet, and for what? Perhaps you'd be better off categorizing the tropes of your own life. note Then again, perhaps not.

Black Mirror is a UK science fiction horror anthology series produced (and primarily written) by Dead Set creator Charlie Brooker. The series is inspired by The Twilight Zone and is named for the reflection visible in a blackened digital screen. The episodes all explore techno-paranoia and general unease with the world. They are usually set in an alternative present/near future dystopia and often have dark and satirical tones, although some episodes are more experimental and even lighter.

Black Mirror is a British dystopia-anthology series created by Charlie Brooker. The series was initially broadcast on Channel 4, however was purchased by Netflix in 2015, who commissioned the series for a third, fourth and fifth season.

Premiering two years after its debut season, Black Mirror sophomore collection of cautionary tales made things a little stranger. In retrospect, you can see how closely the concepts in Season 2 mirror some of the concepts explored in Season 1 (more on that later), but what sets it apart is how each episode conceals that realization before the grand reveal.

There is only so much bleakness that a person can take, which is why I'm sure many of us are thankful for Season 4 of Black Mirror. Keeping in line with the newfound positivity the series had incorporated into Season 3 (well, with just one episode, really), the six-episode second season of its Netflix run had an unusually even assortment of happy and sad endings.

The anthology series has already featured a number of famous stars through its current five-season run. This includes Daniel Kaluuya, Hayley Atwell, Jon Hamm, Bryce Dallas Howard, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis, Sarah Snook, Benedict Wong, Jesse Plemons, Andrea Riseborough, Joe Cole, Letitia Wright, Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Scott, and Miley Cyrus.

News of the upcoming season comes less than six months after Netflix released the interactive stand-alone film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, in which viewers were able to make decisions for the main character using a "choose-your-own-adventure" scenario.

Obviously, there are some vague updates, such as Netflix's continuing promise to produce two Marvel series per year. (In other words: After the release of Daredevil season two and Luke Cage this year, don't expect more until 2017.) However, the rest of Netflix's 2016 schedule is still available to parse through, including its highly anticipated Gilmore Girls revival and its expensive, Downton Abbey-esque period drama, The Crown. 041b061a72
