Black Mirror Returns / Channel 4




The first series gripped the nation, with it's satirical black humour and dark, bold themes regarding possible fictional futures of mankind. Although fictional, the first series contained three stories based on exaggerated futures on themes from the present day. From extreme reality 'X-Factor' style TV shows to memory micro chips implanted in to the brain, these ideas are not too far off from our own reality. Expect to see social media playing an important part in the new series and according to the creator, television writer Charlie Brooker, 'We've got all sorts of unpleasant things and also one of them is very sad.'

The new series will return later this year, but until then a trailer has been released to keep you keen.
