If you’ve rampaged through Stranger Things and are looking for your next alternate-reality sci-fi obsession, Netflix has some good news for you. 

It was announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour that season 3 of Black Mirror, the British TV show from Charlie Brooker, would debut on Oct. 21. The show’s Twitter account was appropriately ominous. 

The six-episode series will feature Bryce Dallas Howard, Halt and Catch Fire‘s Mackenzie Davis, and Game of Thrones‘ Jerome Flynn, and each episode will have a different director, one of which is 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s Dan Trachtenberg. 

The streaming platform also announced a handful of new fall titles (including the new Gilmore Girls) and second-season pickups for Lady Dynamite, Chelsea, and, inexplicably, Rob Schneider‘s series Real Rob

Considering the world has basically become an episode of Black Mirror in its absence, we can’t wait to see what season 3 brings.
