‘Black Mirror’ Creator Charlie Brooker Reveals What His ‘Black Mirror’ Pandemic Would Look Like
With just a few days left in the calendar year, it is now safe to say that Black Mirror fans are not getting any new, surprising installments from Charlie Brooker's darker Netflix anthology. And not because the creator of the series no longer has twisted ideas, but because he and his colleague Annabel Jones, the showrunner of “Black Mirror”, have implemented all these ideas in “Death to 2020”, their upcoming Netflix mockumentary . the year 2020.
But yeah, Brooker still knows what the coronavirus pandemic would have been like if he'd shot a new "Black Mirror" episode amid the pandemic.
“A strange thing that struck me, and maybe that's just me - and you wouldn't tell about 'Black Mirror' - but I've always been a very paranoid and worried person who is neurotically concerned about the worst possible is close to it, ”Brooker told reporters during a virtual panel promoting“ Death to 2020 ”last week. “And, oddly enough, when that happened, I think that on some levels I went, in some ways, to a strange kind of almost optimism. Because that fear and fear of something terrible happens when something terrible happens, it is suddenly a real and ongoing concern, and you are not concerned about some great unknown, but about an actual situation.

“And in many ways it would have been incredibly violent and incredible if I had written the 'Black Mirror' version of a pandemic that had evolved beyond the panic - as if society had collapsed to dust in an exciting opening scene. "He went on." And indeed, in general for the moment until now ... your neighbor is more likely to help you with something than fight you for a bottle of water. "
Brooker and Jones gave no updates on a sixth season of Black Mirror during the Death to 2020 press day and instead focused on what Netflix calls an "original comedy event in the form of a (satirical) landmark documentary" Look back on this unprecedented year through the eyes of the most ill-informed commentators you will ever meet.
