Anyone and everyone who has seen ‘Black Mirror’ now has an extremely different perception about new technology. The science fiction anthology television series focuses on the consequences of new technologies, most of which we are not prepared for.

With every new season, it exceeds our expectations and the latest season was no exception. With 6 episodes that cover a wide and eclectic range of film genres, we couldn’t have been happier. 

But, there was one episode that garnered the most attention- ‘USS Callister’.

The wildly similar Star Trek vibes that this episode gave the audience was the reason why it became the most popular one out of the lot. And those who loved it beyond words are now in for a treat.

The director of the episode, Toby Haynes said in an interview that he would love to see it as a TV series. (Who wouldn’t really?). Here is what he said to The Hollywood Reporter,

“I was talking with Louise Sutton, who produced this and ‘Metalhead’, and she cooked up a brilliant idea of spinning it off into a TV series. I’d love to do a TV series of USS Callister — it’s probably one of the best pilots for a space show, ever. And I made it! So I’m keen to see it as a TV series. I think Charlie might revisit it as a Black Mirror. Whether I’m the one to do it, I don’t know. Being a fan of the show as much as I am, and being a part of making it, I’d love to work with that crew and cast again. It’s a gift for a director.”

Honestly, we would love to see each one of Black Mirror’s episodes in the form of a TV series but ‘USS Callister’ definitely seems like a good start. 

In case you haven’t seen the episode, here’s a trailer to fascinate you and get you started:
