Charlie Brooker is said to be working on the scripts now
Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror is reportedly moving to Netflix.
The online streaming giant is said to have ordered “multiple episodes” of Brooker’s dystopian anthology series, which launched on Channel 4 in 2011.
Channel 4 has now aired a total of seven episodes of Black Mirror: two series of three episodes apiece, plus a Christmas special starring Jon Hamm and Rafe Spall that aired last December. Netflix holds the streaming rights to the show in the US, where Black Mirror has recently become a cult hit.
According to RadioTimes.com, Brooker is currently working on scripts for a new batch of Black Mirror episodes after reaching an agreement with Netflix.
Representatives for both Netflix and Channel 4 have declined to comment on the report, though a source at the British broadcaster suggested that Channel 4 could still broadcast the rumoured new episodes because it has negotiated a “first look deal”.
Black Mirror has attracted strong casts for its self-contained episodes, with actors including Rory Kinnear, Toby Kebbell, Lindsay Duncan, Hayley Atwell, Jason Flemyng and Rupert Everett all appearing in individual episodes.
Earlier this year it was reported that a US remake was in the works though this has yet to be confirmed.
