Death to 2020 logo

There are a lot of words you could use to describe 2020. Eventful. Stressful. Life-altering. But you probably wouldn’t say “funny.”

Netflix is ready to change that. They’re ending the year with Death to 2020, a mockumentary-style comedy special about this year. Check out the teaser below.

Netflix’s spoof documentary will feature footage of real-life events with fake commentary by “renowned experts” (comedians).

The special is jam-packed with celebrities. The teaser mentions Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Samson Kayo, Leslie Jones, Diane Morgan, Cristin Milioti, and Joe Keery.

Here’s the official synopsis for Death To 2020 from Netflix:

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.

Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones created and executive produced the special. Alison Marlow also produces.

The special doesn’t have a release date yet. (The teaser just says “coming soon.”) But since it’s a 2020 recap, you can probably expect it in late December.

So, are you ready to leave 2020 in the dust? Let us know in the comments what events you hope Death to 2020 spoofs.
