Netflix will break the codes of its anthology series to offer a sequel to one of the best episodes of Black Mirror in season 7.

It is by making a lasting impression that the series Black Mirror started in 2011: seeing an English Prime Minister forced to have intimate relations with a sow shocked many spectators when the very first episode was released. However, the pilot was not content to be provocative, having fun deconstructing modern society and its use of media.

Behind the idea, we find Netflix, but above all Charlie Brooker, creator of Black Mirror and screenwriter of numerous episodes. The author has managed to bring his series into the category of classics in more than ten years of existence, and many parts from the different seasons have become emblematic.

Until season 6, the series had fun dissecting our relationship with the media in a purely anthological format. But it seems that season 7 is trying something new: a sequel! And not just any one, since it would be linked to one of the best episodes of Black Mirror.
