Black Mirror Season 6 in development at Netflix

Even though real life managed to imitate an episode of black mirror, Netflix is ​​gearing up to find all-new ways to put us back in the fetal position with a fresh slate of episodes from the hit sci-fi series, as Variety reports. Three years after season 5 premiered with only three episodes, a new one is emerging, with the series creator Charlie Brooker on board to helm it. With each new installment, the anthology series mixes technology and criticism to paint a bleak picture of where society might be headed.

Of course, episode details aren’t coming anytime soon, since Netflix tends to keep it under wraps until the start of the season. The idea, however, is to deliver more episodes than Season 5 and expand the production values ​​to a more cinematic scope. Since the British series was introduced to the Netflix catalog, production values ​​have certainly been boosted, but now it looks like we can expect bigger stories – which begs the question: how can we black mirror become even more intimidating?


Variety also reports that each episode will be approached as an individual film, which the production experimented with. Bandersnatch, a playful episode presented as a feature film, which was one of the highlights of last season. The series is also frequently populated by high-profile cast members: Bryce Dallas Howard, Anthony Macky, Miley Cyrus, Jon Hammand Kelly MacDonald are just a few of the names that have been featured in some of the standalone episodes. So we can expect more A-listers to make their way into the next season as casting is ongoing.

Series creator Brooker hasn’t said much about it black mirror over the past two years, particularly because the production rights for the series remained with Endemol Shine Group after the screenwriter and his writing partner Annabelle Jones left the production company House of Tomorrow. That’s why we haven’t seen any new episodes of black mirror lately, but now it looks like Netflix has struck a deal with Banijay Group (who bought Endemol in 2020) that greenlights the new season.

black mirror originally aired on Channel 4 in 2011, and the series’ dystopian take on reality quickly made it a hugely popular show. Netflix later acquired the series and ordered more episodes, which greatly increased the stories’ reach and its production values. Throughout its run, the speculative fiction series has won 6 Emmys and been nominated for countless other awards.

Netflix has yet to officially announce the production of the new season of black mirror. Stay connected for more news.
