The timing couldn’t have been better. Netflix announced today that it is getting a 12-episode order of the third season of Black Mirror, the British techno-horror series that aired on Channel 4 in its first two seasons. This announcement comes shortly after the internet was reminded of the show when a new David Cameron biography alleged that the British prime minister stuck a “private part of his anatomy” — whew, that phrasing — into a dead pig’s mouth. “It’s all very exciting — a whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable,” said creator Charlie Brooker, who will continue to helm the show alongside Annabel Jones. “I just hope none of these new story ideas come true.” Black Mirror: Where art and reality come to create an unwholesome union.
