I was talking with Louise Sutton, who produced this and “Metalhead,” and she cooked up a brilliant idea of spinning it off into a TV series. I’d love to do a TV series of “USS Callister” — it’s probably one of the best pilots for a space show, ever. And I made it! So I’m keen to see it as a TV series. I think Charlie might revisit it as a Black Mirror. Whether I’m the one to do it, I don’t know. Being a fan of the show as much as I am, and being a part of making it, I’d love to work with that crew and cast again. It’s a gift for a director.
We would love to see a continuation of ‘USS Callister’ whether it comes in the form of another episode of Black Mirror or its own spinoff series. One of the many reasons the episode was so thrilling to watch was the fantastic world-building Haynes created in the span 76 minutes. We are introduced to the Westworld-esque immersive game Infinity and the dull office-life the game’s co-creator lives day to day, then catapulted into the fantastical Star Trek-inspired world Haynes manages to grow outside of the confines of Daly’s spaceship.
It’s also the perfect time for another space drama. With the return of Star Trek: Discovery on CBS, the surprising FOX hit The Orville and Star Wars on everyone’s mind, it seems like space is the place to be when it comes to successful TV series whether they’re drama, comedy or a mix of both.
