‘Black Mirror’: First photos from series three revealed

Charlie Brooker's dystopian drama comes to Netflix in October

The first photos have been unveiled for the forthcoming new series of Black Mirror.

Black Mirror, created by Charlie Brooker, explores the world of human nature within the digital age, with running themes of contemporary techno-paranoia throughout its episodes. The series, which first premiered on Channel 4 in 2011, has received an international Emmy Award, a Peabody Award, a Rose D’Or and been nominated for a BAFTA.

It was recently picked up by Netflix after the streaming service outbid Channel 4. Brooker said of the move at the time: “Netflix connects us with a global audience so that we can create bigger, stranger, more international and diverse stories than before, whilst maintaining that Black Mirror feel. I just hope none of these new story ideas come true.”

Black Mirror will return for a third season globally on October 21. It will run for six episodes in total.
