"Black Mirror" fans rejoice, "San Junipero" could get a sequel
If you’re a fan of Black Mirror, you def remember Season 3, Episode 4, “San Junipero.” It was notable for being one of the rare episodes with an (arguably) even nearly happy ending. And it pretty instantly became a fan favorite in its own right!
Executive producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones recently opened up about “San Junipero” — and gave us hope for a sequel.
Set in 1987, the episode centers on two women — the shy Yorkie (Mackenzie Davis) and outgoing Kelly (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) — as they fall for one another. While initially working on it, Brooker put an emphasis on subverting audience expectations.
When asked about the potential for a sequel or crossover, Brooker and Jones were super into the idea.
And in true Black Mirror fashion, it sounds like any continuation of the story would defy expectations.
The pair went on to say that instead of an episode, we may get some “San Junipero” Easter eggs. Or, they’d like to do an “experience.” And sadly, they wouldn’t want to revisit the original characters.
But here’s the silver lining — if they create a real-life San Junipero for us, we can totally revisit the original characters on our own, right?
