Hatte ich jetzt nicht auf’m Schirm: Charlie Brooker hat eine fünfte Staffel Black Mirror gedreht. Die drei Episoden streamen ab 5. Juni online und die Staffel ist damit genauso lange, wie die ersten beiden Staffeln (die ebenfalls aus jeweils drei Episoden bestanden).
This new installment of the anthology series will consist of three all-new stories from Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones. They star Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.
Once again, technology is front and center driving the stories in these three pieces, both distracting and tempting the protagonists. In addition to continuing to comment on the state of social media, this season promises to also dive deeper into the state of artificial intelligence, smart technology and virtual reality.
Von Radio Times (aus irgendeinem Grund die verlässlichste und früheste Quelle aller Black Mirror-News und zwar seit Jahren):
There have been calls from some fans to return to previous Black Mirror stories with the new episodes, in particular the surprisingly uplifting episode San Junipero.
However, Brooker has sounded a note of caution when it comes to expecting any ‘sequels’.
“In terms of a sequel to San Junipero, no, certainly not in its current form – I don’t think we’d revisit those characters unless we had a really, really good reason,” Brooker told NME. “And I very much doubt that we would do that as an episode. Maybe as a graphic novel or some sort of commemorative biscuit; but we wouldn’t want to pick that apart and tinker with it, as we’d like to leave Kelly and Yorkie where they are.”
