If you, like the rest of us, can’t wait to bid farewell to this frustrating year full of terrible twists, then the creators of Black Mirror have something in store for you.
From Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, a.k.a. the brains that made our dystopian future super depressing, comes Death to 2020, a comedy-mockumentary about the year that we’d all rather erase from existence.
Not much is revealed from this trailer, only that it’s a “comedy event” that’s still in the works. In an interview with Vulture, actor Hugh Grant revealed that his role is of a “repellent” historian being interviewed about the year that was.
The cast is pretty cool too. Aside from Grant, it also includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kumail Nanjiani, FRIENDS’ Lisa Kudrow, the reprised Ghostbusters’ Leslie Jones, Stranger Things’ Joe Keery, and Cristin Milioti, who has also starred in the Emmy award-winning Black Mirror episode, “USS Calister.”
The Netflix special doesn’t have a date yet, though we’re due to change calendars soon so we might not have to wait that long.
