The first images for Season 3 of Netflix’s “Black Mirror” have been released two months ahead of its October premiere and weeks before its screening at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The photos which feature Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis and Bryce Dallas Howard are taken from two episodes — one directed by Owen Harris and the other by Joe Wright.
One pair of images from Harris’ 80s-themed “San Junipero,” episode show a glammed-up Mbatha-Raw sitting next to Davis who is dressed down in a striped sweater and collar shirt. The second image shows Davis standing alone in an alley.
Netflix announced at the TCAs in January that Mbatha-Raw and Davis had both been cast in lead roles.
Bringing the total images to four, two photos from the Wright-directed installment, “Nosedive,” feature Howard holding her cellphone. She appears deep in thought.
Executive producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones also announced earlier this year that they teamed with Rashida Jones, Dan Trachtenberg and Mike Schur to pen a few episodes for the pending season. Jones and Schur co-wrote one episode and Trachtenberg wrote another.
The sci-fi anthology series is based on the British series of the same name, which recently starred “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm in a Christmas special which aired in Dec. 2014.
Jerome Flynn and Kelly MacDonald will also star in the upcoming season.
“Black Mirror” returns on Netflix Oct. 21.
