All you need to know about Black Mirror episodes:
Netflix originally ordered for 12 new episodes of the series which is probably the largest single order the show has ever received. The first six episodes will be released in October, 2016 and the other six episodes might take some more time to release. It is also possible that the later six episodes will release after October or come out as a fourth season.
Black Mirror team have remained silent on the plot details and creating the much needed suspense for the viewers. One of the directors revealed that ‘Play test’ has a video game element and it will be something to look forward for. Importance has been given to the music element and on board are some very well known musicians composers like Ben Salisbury and Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Max Richter etc.
Black mirror was originally on Channel 4 , until Brooker and his production company House of Tomorrow struck a deal with Netflix in September 2015 to make 12 new episodes. Brooker claims that it is a very exciting period for them as they are about to release their television series on one of the finest platforms. This will help them cater to a larger number of audience and attain the much needed popularity.
Channel 4 insisted that they still had the rights to broadcast the first look of the episode in U.K and also if they could air the episodes on their channel before it is out on Netflix U.K. But unfortunately channel 4 had lost all the rights and now the deal was in Netflix’s bag.
