Brooker has apparently already started writing the new episodes.

The writer commented: “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.”

He joked: “I just hope none of these new story ideas come true.”
