     October 7, 2016


Just when you thought that there was already too much good TV to choose from this fall, we’re here to remind you that Charlie Brooker‘s Black Mirror is set to return to Netflix for its third season later this month. The season’s first trailer offers up looks at Bryce Dallas HowardAlice Eve, Gugu Mbatha-RawMackenzie Davis and more in the anthology series’ dark and deeply disturbing return.

Be sure to check out our own Adam Chitwood‘s review of the season, which he says still has its dark moments but comes with some surprising sunniness at times as well. This season will also feature episodes directed by Joe Wright (with writing in part by Rashida Jones) and Dan Trachtenberg among others. Black Mirror has been the place to spot veteran talent alongside promising newcomers since its 2011 debut, and this season looks to be no different.
