A second season of Black Mirror  JUL 12 2012

The UK's Channel 4 is bringing back Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror for a second season of three episodes.

He said: 'British drama seems particularly obsessed with murder and the past, often together. Black Mirror is a rare modern look at where society and individuals could be headed, given the all-pervasive deluge of social media and technology.'

The first series prompted 322 complaints over a story in which a Prime Minister was blackmailed into having sex with a pig live on TV.

Brooker said: 'Half of the things in the first run of Black Mirror seem to be on the verge of coming true. They've got prisoners in Brazilian prisons pedalling on exercise bikes to reduce their sentences (not entirely dissimilar to the episode 15 Million Merits) and Google Glass looks like copyright infringement as far as The Entire History of You is concerned.
