Just over a year after the first series aired, ''Series/BlackMirror'' returned to Creator/Channel4 in February of 2013, now more fully examining the fears of reliance on and interaction with modern technologies -- in particular Website/{{Twitter}}. The more obscure airing month, made possible by the non-standard formatting of broadcast slots on British television, does not seem to have negatively affected the viewership, as its numbers were actually higher; they again followed the trend of progressively fewer viewers per episode, with the first episode achieving 2 million and the second 1.69 -- similar to the first series -- but the third episode also had 1.28, over twice as many as the equivalent episode of the last series, which may be due to that episode having aired the week of Christmas and not being exactly family programming. It could also be because viewers were more excited to see the colourful Waldo character of series two, with the episode gaining better reviews.

The Christmas special, Recap/BlackMirrorWhiteChristmas, that aired in December 2014 is not attached to series 2, not to any series, of the show; Channel 4 [[http://www.channel4.com/programmes/black-mirror/episode-guide/series-3 list it as a single-episode series 3]], though this is effectively {{RetCon}}ned out of existence by the series 3 later produced by Creator/{{Netflix}}.

!!Tropes relating to ''Black Mirror'' Series Two
* NewMediaAreEvil: The theme becomes more distinct in this series.
* ThematicSeries: "How dangerous is Twitter?" posed in three different ways:
** "Be Right Back": It is possible to use the personal nature of social media uploads to effectively recreate the humour and mind of a deceased person.
** "White Bear": It distracts you from having humanity for the sake of recording popular moments, ending up with a herd of sheeples terrorizing people.
** "The Waldo Moment": A political joke gains twitter notoriety that translates into real world popularity, despite being the worst person for the job.
