Charlie Brooker Returning to Netflix with All Star Cast in “Death to 2020” – Coming Soon

Netflix has teased a new comedy special from Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker titled “Death to 2020”. The teaser is fairly short and really doesn’t give any details but the presence of Hugh Grant’s name does give us some insight… While we would love to see more episodes of Black Mirror released, we feel 2020 just isn’t the right time… The teaser even says “even the creators of Black Mirror couldn’t make this year up”. But they do have something to add. Something that stars:

  • Samuel L. Jackson
  • Hugh Grant
  • Lisa Kudrow
  • Kumail Nanjiani
  • Tracey Ullman
  • Samson Kayo
  • Leslie Jones
  • Diane Morgan
  • Cristin Milioti
  • Joe Keery

In a recent interview with Vulture, Hugh Grant was asked what he was doing next and replied with:

I’m doing a thing tomorrow, actually. Charlie Brooker [the creator of Black Mirror] has written a mockumentary about 2020. It’s for Netflix, and I am a historian who’s being interviewed about the year. I’m pretty repellent, actually! And you’ll like my wig.

So it looks like we’re getting a mockumentary about 2020 rather than the Brooker’s long-lost ‘Wipe’ series or darker tone of Black Mirror. The show’s synopsis is “A comedic look at the year we all want to end through the eyes of the worst-informed commentators you’ll ever meet. From the creators of Black Mirror.” “Death to 2020” premieres on December 27th.
