Attention, "Black Mirror" fans -- Netflix just announced that it's commissioned 12 brand new episodes of the critically acclaimed series.

According to a statement from Netflix, creator and writer Charlie Brooker has already started writing the new episodes and will begin filming them in late 2015. The series' first three seasons were originally aired on Channel 4 in the U.K. before being picked up by the streaming service. 

"Charlie has created a one-of-a-kind series with an uncanny voice and prescient, darkly comedic vision," said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix.

"It's all very exciting," said Brooker. "I just hope none of these new story ideas come true." Brooker might be referencing an episode of "Black Mirror" that happened to look a lot like real news.

Earlier this week, rumors swirled that the current prime minister of the U.K., David Cameron, allegedly put "a private part of his anatomy" into a dead pig's mouth. On "Black Mirror," the first episode of the series portrays a fictional prime minister being forced to have sex with a pig on live television in order to save a princess.  

Netflix has yet to announce when the new episodes of "Black Mirror" will premiere, so stay tuned.
