Black Mirror is a British sci-fi TV series which continues to attract a high number of viewers despite being described as too dark by some people. After all, it seems that the dark and satirical themes it tackles are what bothers society and what people want to find out more about. What makes it so special, according to Charlie Brooker, the co-creator of the series, is that “each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they’re all about the way we live now…”
When asked about the inspiration for creating more episodes of such an unusual series, Brooker said: “I was toying with an idea for this season coming up that was literally torn from today’s headlines, and I kind of thought, Well, the problem is, things are moving so quickly at the moment; who can say where we’ll be in six months?” Brooker then continued to explain: “I wouldn’t want to, in a way, in case I ended up doing something that looked massively dated. I’ve probably gone more conceptual with the next season, partly because I think the world became so unpredictable. It would be a fools errand, trying to see which way things are going to land.”
Black Mirror Season 3 was released on Netflix worldwide in October last year, but fans are already impatient to hear something about the new one. Brooker did not refuse to talk about it, but he still did not reveal many details. “I can say that we’re currently shooting the fourth one in London – and when I say ‘the fourth one,’ that’s not necessarily the order in which they’ll go up,” he said.
Finally, the series co-creator hinted that we should expect to see the upcoming season even more outlandish that the previous three. Here’s how he explained the urge to make it like that: “I can’t really say much else, except I think there’s quite a lot of stuff that’s quite out there. I don’t know if I’ve lost touch with reality, or what. But then what often tends to happen is I think, Oh my God, this is completely and utterly farfetched, and then reality catches up. So I was consciously trying to cast further afield, I think, in terms of what stories we’re doing. And partly also because I think I was so terrified about the state of the world, I thought, I’m going to entertain myself by having some kooky thoughts.”
Black Mirror Season 4 Release Date
As for the Season 4 release date, it has not been announced yet. But, following the previous release pattern, we guess we should expect to see it in autumn, perhaps in October, just like the third one. We’ll let you know when we find out more reliable information, so stay tuned.
