After Charlie posted the trailer to Twitter on Monday, plenty of followers and fans shared their excitement at the upcoming programme.
One person said: "Yes! Cannot wait for this. Love Black Mirror. Need a satire view on 2020." Another echoed this, writing: "This is quite honestly, with no sarcasm or irony, the only thing I have to look forward to this festive season. Thank you."
A third commented: "I have no idea what this is gonna be, but I'm all for it," while a fourth tweeted: "Sometimes you have to laugh or you'll cry... Will be giving this a watch."
Hugh Grant in Death to 2020
Death to 2020 will see a number of recognisable faces pop up throughout the episode. In addition to Samuel L. Jackson and Lisa, actors Hugh Grant, Tracy Ullman, Kumail Nanjiani and Diane Morgan will also make an appearance. The stars will provide a mix of fictional sketches and monologues as they discuss and theorise all the events of the past 12 months.
The official synopsis reads: "2020: A year so [insert adjective of choice here], even the creators of Black Mirror couldn't make it up… but that doesn't mean they don't have a little something to add. Death to 2020 is a comedy event that tells the story of the dreadful year that was — and perhaps still is?
"This landmark documentary-style special weaves together some of the world's most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months."
