Netflix has just released six behind-the-scenes featurettes which offer insight and help further excavate all six episodes of the latest season of Black Mirror.

Beyond the six featurettes which greatly compliment each of the show's films is a seventh featurette, which primarily centres on Brooker as he discusses whether the individual stories within the series are apart of the same, singular universe. Peep the creator's thoughts below:

In other Netflix news, the streaming service is readying its latest original series, Altered Carbon, which is set to debut February 2. This latest episodic endeavour is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where human bodies are mere hosts to conscious brains that can be removed and displaced at whim. The series resembles Ghost in the Shell in a narrative context, while recalling the techno-dystopia of Blade Runner.
