The new season is expected to have more episodes than the three offered by the show’s fifth season. Charlie Brooker and Annabelle Jones who are the creators of the show left their production company House of Tomorrow in 2020. The move created downtime for the series as well as comments from Brooker at the height of the pandemic that seemed to put the series in the doubt of a return. Talk with Radio schedules Brooker said: “At the moment I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about collapsing societies, so I’m not working on any of them. I’m kind of wanting to brush up on my comic book skills, so I wrote scripts aimed at making me laugh.

It’s possible we could see some of that humor reflected in the new season of black mirrorwhich doesn’t yet have a release date, but you can watch the previous five seasons on Netflix.
