'Black Mirror' is coming back to Netflix. The streaming service confirmed the news in an email to The Verge, and also punted out a cryptic teaser on Twitter.
The series started life on Channel 4 before moving to Netflix in 2015. The streaming service commissioned two series, each split into six episodes. The fourth series was released on 29th December last year.
It covered a host of technological topics, including dating apps, robot dogs and surveillance. This being 'Black Mirror', each was taken to its horrific logical conclusion.
The teaser clip isn't giving much away. It ends with the message "Be right back". There's no word on when it will return, or what topics the new episodes will cover.
The show has been compared to a modern day 'Twilight Zone'. It also has an eerie knack of predicting the future – the episode in which the prime minister is coerced into coitus with a pig proved particularly prescient.
