Netflix has released the first trailer for 'Black Mirror' season three. The streaming service acquired the rights to Charlie Brooker's dystopian sci-fi series after the first two seasons aired on Channel 4.
"In this world, we're all so caught up in our own heads," a character says. "It's easy to lose sight of what's real."
Fans will be delighted that series three looks in keeping with the previous two seasons. Storylines include future video games, a man being filmed in a compromising situation by the camera in his computer, and an app that gives you a "popularity arc" (possibly inspired by the app Peeple that lets users rate other people as if they were restaurants or hotels).
This series looks to be lushly produced, so should be more cinematic than previous ones.
Past series of 'Black Mirror' have included the prime minister being forced to have sex with a pig on live television in order to allow the release of a hostage, and a Christmas special starring Jon Hamm in three mini stories. It's been hailed by critics as a modern day 'Twilight Zone'.
The third series comes to Netflix on October 21st.
