Black Mirror is a British science-fiction anthology series that is known for its dark, often satirical plots. Its first two series (and the Christmas special) aired on Channel 4; series three and on are exclusively available on Netflix.

The creator, Charlie Brooker, says about the show: "Each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they're all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes' time if we're clumsy."[1]

It currently has four series, and the fifth will be released in December of 2018.[2]

Due to the Emmy-award-winning episode San Junipero, the fandom OTP is Kelly/Yorkie.
