Charlie Brooker's dystopian drama series 'Black Mirror' is coming back, but will be exclusive to Netflix, according to sources. The show was previously broadcast on Channel 4, and syndicated to Netflix.

According to sources, the show is such a hit in the US, where 'Black Mirror' parties are a common occurrence, that Netflix wants to make new episodes just for its service.

Producer Endemol Shine North America has confirmed it is considering an American version of the show.

The show's popularity with our American cousins was no doubt helped by the Christmas episode – entitled 'White Christmas' – starring Jon Hamm, aka Don Draper from 'Mad Men'.

Despite the interest from Netflix, Channel 4 sources say the British broadcaster is keen to retain the rights to the show.

In other Netflix news, the streaming giant has released a trailer for the third series of 'Orange is the New Black'. Here it is:

The trailer recaps on the story so far, and gives a glimpse of new character Stella, played by Ruby Rose.

The series starts on Netflix on June 12th. Netflix has already commissioned a fourth series.
