Perfect timing.

After a swirl of rumors and one episode veering a little too close to reality, Black Mirror is officially heading to Netflix

The streaming site ordered 12 new episodes of the show, which will be helmed by creator Charlie Brooker. In a statement, he said: “Netflix connects us with a global audience so that we can create bigger, stranger, more international and diverse stories than before, whilst maintaining that Black Mirror feel. I just hope none of these new story ideas come true.”

Brooker might have been referencing the David Cameron #piggate story that captured our hearts and minds earlier this week, and mirrored the first episode of the series, “The National Anthem,” a little too closely. 

Netflix released a short teaser trailer today, which cannily incorporates its logo into the plotline from Season 1’s final episode, “The Entire History of You.” 

With Black Mirror‘s focus on the future shock of technology, this new order couldn’t have come at a better time. 

Guess it’s time to spend the weekend binge-watching the first two seasons again.
