The future just got a lot bleaker thanks to the announcement that British anthology series Black Mirror has been renewed for a fifth season on Netflix. The series began with two three-episode series on Channel 4 back in 2011 and 2013 before gaining substantial popularity here in the States on Netflix. Apparently the show has found its audience because hot on the heels of December's season four premiere, Netflix has decided to gift us with another round of depressing morality tales later this year.
I must admit that even as a die hard fan of the show, I have yet to watch any of the season four episodes yet. Too much end of the year Oscar movie nonsense kept me from catching up with it, but it's definitely on my list of things to do. I'm especially curious about the Star Trek-esque episode with Meth Damon and Liam McPoyle.
What do you guys think? Are you excited that we'll soon be swimming in more bleak and solemn tales about the pitfalls of technology? Do you think, as I do, that Black Mirror is the heir apparent to The Twilight Zone? Sound off in the comments section below!
