It seems that Black Mirror, the popular TV show known for its mind-bending storylines, may be returning to Netflix after a four-year hiatus. It seemed like the show and real life were actually melting together after this brilliant bit of guerrilla advertising done during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The show’s Twitter account recently became active again, posting the message “what have we missed?” which fans have taken as a hint that a new season is in the works.
