Everything We Know About Black Mirror Series 3

There will be no mention of piggate

Annabel Jones and Charlie Brooker have finally unleashed some concrete details about the upcoming series of Black Mirror.

Which is, as we're sure you'll agree, a very good thing. Ever since the Black Mirror-esque piggate scandal squealed its way through British politics back in September, our appetite for the prophetic series has been growing ever more ravenous.

"This year is free publicity for our show," Brooker said. "People are always coming up to me and saying 'That's a bit Black Mirror',' [with] the situation we're finding ourselves in across the globe. I don't think there's anything where we thought we should've gone further."

So, what do we know? Well…

  • Six new episodes will hit Netflix on 21 October, all at once.
  • Parks and Recreation stars Rashida Jones and Mike Schur have co-written an episode. Brooker said: "It turned out they were fans of the show, and the feelings were mutual."
  • 10 Cloverfield Lane's Dan Trachtenberg has also penned a video game-themed episode.
  • Actors this season include Jurassic Park's Bryce Dallas Howard, Star Trek Into Darkness' Alice Eve, 22 Jump Street's Wyatt Russell and The Martian's Mackenzie Davis.
  • There will be no mention of piggate.
  • It's more "demented" than Pokémon Go, says Brooker: "It's fair to say that this season,  some of the ideas are because we were aware of the greater progress of the world,  that you've got to go two steps forward to stay ahead of reality at the moment. […] There are things that are more demented then Pokemon Go within this season."
