Is 2020 a joke to you?

Maybe not, but Netflix is hoping to find some humor in this awful year anyways. Death To 2020, a mockumentary-style comedy special, will recap the past year while roasting real-life events. Watch the official trailer below.

The special comes from Black Mirror producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones. (In case you needed any more evidence for 2020 coming straight out of a dystopian plotline.)

Death To 2020 showcases a ton of actors, comedians, and celebrities, all appearing as faux historians, journalists, scientists and so on to analyze 2020. Expect to see a ton of familiar faces, including Hugh Grant, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Samuel L. Jackson, Samson Kayo, Lisa Kudrow, Diane Morgan, Leslie Jones, Cristin Milioti, Joe Keery and Laurence Fishburne.

“Those who only know me through Black Mirror may not realize that when not writing speculative sci-fi about people frowning at smartphones, I’ve spent years making comedy shows in the UK –  including many topical comedy specials. So to me, Death to 2020 feels like the collision of several different strands,” said Brooker.

Brooker acknowledges this has been a difficult year for people, but he hopes Death To 2020 can be cathartic for everyone.

“I don’t love the word “satire” but there’s some of that here, alongside some angry jokes, and some goofy jokes,” said Brooker. “And hopefully viewers will find at least one joke to their liking — because let’s face it, in 2020, any laugh you can emit, no matter how fleeting, is a small but precious victory.”

So, ready to leave this year behind? Death To 2020 hits Netflix December 27.
