Netflix Unveils 'Black Mirror' Season 3 Trailer
With season three of Black Mirror just weeks away from its Netflix premiere, the streaming giant released the first full trailer for the new season on Friday.
The extended clip shows various scenes from the six different stories, or "six different realities," as the trailer calls it, over the six-episode third season. The titles for those six episodes: "Nosedive," "Playtest," "Shut up and Dance," "San Junipero," "Men Against Fire" and "Hated in the Nation" (in that order.)
Created and written by Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror explores society's unease with the modern world through sharp, suspenseful tales exploring themes like contemporary techno-paranoia. The series looks at how technology has transformed every aspect of our lives.
Season three's cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Alice Eve, James Norton, Cherry Jones, Wyatt Russell, Alex Lawther, Jerome Flynn, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis, Michael Kelly, Malachi Kirby, Kelly McDonald and Faye Marsay, among others. Joe Wright (Atonement), Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane), James Watkins (The Woman in Black), Owen Harris, Jacob Verbruggen (London Spy) and James Hawes each directed an episode, with Mike Schur (The Good Place, Parks and Recreation) and Rashida Jones (Celeste and Jesse Forever) penning the episode "Nosedive." Annabel Jones serves as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside Brooker.
The British anthology series originally debuted on Channel 4 in the UK in 2011 before Netflix outbid the channel for season three. The Netflix deal also includes six more episodes beyond season three. The first two seasons consisted of three episodes each, with a Christmas special that followed in 2014.
The entire third season debuts on Netflix Friday, Oct. 21. Watch the trailer below:
