Undoubtedly one of the best shows of 2016, was the long-awaited season three of Black Mirror, and it looks like we won't have too long to wait for a follow-up, as season four is very much in production according to show creator Charlie Brooker.

The broadcaster also revealed some juicy details about what viewers can expect from the fourth season of the anthology series.

"I've got to be slightly careful about what I say," Brooker told The Telegraph. "But one's shooting in Iceland, which hasn't been announced yet."

"We've got some strikingly different tones and looks. We've got one that's overtly comic, much more overtly comic than anything we've done. It's got fairly mainstream comic elements, but also some really unpleasant stuff that happens.

"I haven't even seen the rough cut of it yet."

He went on to say: "The one we're about to shoot is a crime thriller. And we're doing one that's got relationships at the heart of it.

"And then five and six are slightly still up for grabs."

It was also revealed recently that Jodie Foster would be directing an episode, which Brooker described as having the tone of an indie movie, adding: "There's a mother and daughter relationship in it."

He also explained how Foster got involved in the project, saying: "Netflix got in touch with her. She's done episodes of Orange Is The New Black before, and they spoke to her and sent her our script, and within a week of that we were were Skypeing. It was a bit odd, to be Skyping with Jodie Foster – but I did a good job of hiding my delight."

He also addressed the speculation that there would be a follow-up to season 3's popular episode San Junipero: "I'm terrified of San Junipero in a way, because I think we sort of captured lightening in a bottle there," he explained.

"You try and think, okay, that went really well, what else can we do? But you've got to then immediately put everything you think of out of your mind, because you can't really do the same thing again."

No word yet on when we can expect to see the new Black Mirror episodes, but as season three premiered on Netflix in October of 2016, we're hoping they have the same planned again for this year.
