It will also star actors Tracey Ullman, Samson Kayo, Leslie Jones, Diane Morgan, Joe Keery and Black Mirror alum Cristin Millioti.

"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?" the official synopsis from the streamer read.

Developed in the style of a documentary, the special weaves together some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months.

Death to 2020 will be produced by Alison Marlow with Brooker and Jones also serving as executive producers.
