‘Death To 2020’ Teaser: Netflix Teams With ‘Black Mirror’ Creator To Say Goodbye To This Sh*tty Year

I think we ALL can agree that 2020..well, it doesn’t get much worse than this. We’ve been trapped indoors pretty much all year, movies are gone, all of summer vacations turned to shit, there was something about murder hornets, and yeah, well, this year can’t go away fast enough. It’s almost like a Black Mirror episode that ran for 365 straight days. Netflix must feel the same way, because they’ve joined with that bizarre series’ creator, Charlie Brooker, for Death to 2020, a comedy that hopes to bring some levity to this shit show of a year.

Hugh Grant, Samuel L. Jackson, Lisa Kudrow, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Samson Kayo, Leslie Jones, Diane Morgan, Cristin Milioti, and Joe Keery are all part of the comedy special, a mockumentary that hopes to send 2020 out with a few laughs. Good lord we could use them.

Death to 2020 doesn’t have a release date, but is “coming soon…too soon?” Probably means it’ll be here before month’s end.

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.
