This year deserves it.

Netflix has just announced Death to 2020, a comedy special from Black Mirror creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones! The special appears to be a mockumentary in the style of The Office, relentlessly picking apart this eventful year with the use of real-life archival footage and movie stars. 

Here’s Variety’s description of Death to 2020:

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.

The special has a surprisingly big cast, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Leslie Jones, Joe Keery, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Cristin Milioti, Diane Morgan and Samson Kayo. Grant earlier mentioned that he was playing a, “pretty repellent,” historian being interviewed about 2020. 

A new season of Black Mirror is probably a long ways off, but this might be just the thing we need to cap off such a dreary year. Netflix hasn’t listed a release date for Death to 2020 yet, but here's hoping that it releases in December - and 2021 doesn't necessitate a sequel.
