Mockumentary About This Dystopian Year

Charlie Brooker has shared a teaser for a new Black Mirror episode titled Death To 2020, a mockumentary about this godforsaken year.

It’s been a common joke that this year has been like living through an episode of Black Mirror in real-life, so it seems quite fitting that there be of rounding out the year with a 2020 special from the show’s creators.

Yesterday, Brooker took to Twitter to share an intriguing looking teaser for a Netflix programme titled Death To 2020, which said –

“The creators of Black Mirror couldn’t make this year up, but they do have something to add.”

Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, the forthcoming Black Mirror instalment is likely to be the Hugh Grant-starring mockumentary that the actor spoke about in a recent New York Magazine interview.

Grant said –

“Charlie Brooker has written a mockumentary about 2020. It’s for Netflix,”

“I’m playing a historian who’s being interviewed about the year. I’m pretty repellent, actually! And you’ll like my wig.”

Brooker has been working with Netflix since 2015 when Black Mirror moved from Channel 4 where the first two seasons aired. There are five seasons to date, as well as a standalone interactive film, Bandersnatch.

The teaser trailer shared on Twitter simply states that the programme is “coming soon” but an exact date has not been released at this stage. We’ll keep you posted as soon as any more concrete information becomes available.
