The series is based on The Twilight Zone and uses technology to comment on contemporary social issues. There are 22 episodes across five series and one special, in addition to the interactive film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018) The first two series aired on the British network Channel 4 in 2011 and 2013, as did the 2014 special "White Christmas". The programme then moved to Netflix, where three further series aired in 2016, 2017 and 2019. A sixth series on Netflix has been greenlit and is in active production as of July 2022.
Black Mirror is an instance of speculative fiction within science fiction. The majority of episodes are set in dystopian near-futures with novel technologies that exaggerate a trait from contemporary culture. The settings are generally patriarchal and capitalist, and most episodes explore topics associated more with masculinity than femininity. Recurring themes throughout Black Mirror include data privacy and surveillance, virtual reality, individualism and consumerism. The frequency of happy endings and positive uses of technology increase in later series.
