Netflix has commissioned 12 new episodes of Black Mirror, with production due to start later this year.
The show will continue to be made in the UK by production company House of Tomorrow's Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, who were the showrunners and executive producers of the first two series, which were shown on Channel 4. Brooker is currently writing the new episodes.
Black Mirror has been a critical success on both sides of the Atlantic, with the first two series of the show already available to watch on Netflix in the US.
In a press statement sent by email, Brooker said:
It's all very exciting. A whole new bunch of Black Mirror episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable. 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.
