10 Horrific Fates Suffered By Black Mirror Characters

If this is what the future holds, we don't want anything to do with it...

In an update regarding the future of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker stated that audiences probably didn't have the "stomach" for "stories about societies falling apart", so it may be some time before we see new instalments to this anthology series. It's a shame because no other programme has come close to Black Mirror's stinging critique on the direction new technologies may take modern society.

While the series isn't always doom and gloom (thank you San Junipero), this social commentary show has never been afraid of showing the gruesome dangers of emerging technologies. Many characters, regardless of their morality, have suffered horrors almost Lovecraftian in nature. Murder and madness run rampant in practically every episode, as characters try and navigate (often unsuccessfully) these high tech worlds that are scarily familiar to our own.

In Black Mirror, something as simple as doing one's job may be enough to send them down a path to their untimely demise. In many of these cases, however, death may be the preferable option in a few of these horrific fates. And if it wasn't clear enough, a spoiler warning is most definitely in effect.
