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.
