At long last, our years of theorizing and bottomless conspiracy board budget has finally paid off. Black Mirror is indeed taking place in one universe, as creator Charlie Brooker acknowledges with a new behind-the-scenes video looking at Season 4.
The announcement of Black Mirror’s next six episodes killed what lingering hope we had for an official “San Junipero” sequel, but the series may not be done with its most popular installment. Not only may the VR tale get a shout-out in an “Easter egg hose” coming to Season 4, but showrunners are considering “an experience” followup to the episode.
There’s a chill in the air, but don’t start bundling up for fall just yet. Another look in the Black Mirror is all you need, and our first Season 4 teaser reveals not only the next six titles, but stars as well.
The beloved “San Junipero” outing of Black Mirror is one of the few granted a happy ending, though not for lack of some heavy subject matter. One scene in particular might have dragged down the entire episode, as creator Charlie Brooker describes cut footage that would “just be too sad.”
