“Black Mirror’ is THE acclaimed sci-fi anthology series of the last few years. Charlie Brooker’s stories about the impact of technology on humanity are set to continue on Netflix after all. There’s a 6th season in the works…
In 2019 came the fifth season of “Black Mirror“ to Netflix – and offered just three episodes. Since then, many fans have given up hope that there will ever be more stories. Some statements by series creator Charlie Brooker also indicated that the series could be over. He revealed that he didn’t know whether, given the world situation, his often gloomy series was still appropriate. There were also rights problems, which made it impossible to continue the series at first. Three years after the release of the last episode to date on Netflix, fans can now breathe a sigh of relief.
As Variety reported, is a newBlack Mirror’ season in progress. The casting process is already underway, and the industry magazine may have gotten wind of the matter. Because as soon as the agencies are asked about their actors, such projects can rarely be kept secret.
Variety found out that the new season should be “even more cinematic in scope”. So the individual episodes of the anthology series will probably be even more epic and bigger, even more like films. Already with the entry of Netflix for the third season, things were going more and more in this direction. In the end, the fifth season only got three episodes, but it was basically three films.
Thanks to Netflix: Even more possibilities
We can certainly not only expect top-class stars in the individual stories (this hasBlack MirrorAfter all, it has long been a tradition), but certainly also more show value and thus even more possibilities for telling individual and very different sci-fi stories.
Netflix also makes this possible. After “Black MirrorCreator Brooker and his creative partner Annabel Jones separated from their old company Endemol in early 2020, leaving the rights to their biggest hit there. So Brooker couldn’tBlack Mirror“-make content more. Her own new company, Broke And Bones, quickly closed a deal with Netflix – but surprisingly little has come of it so far. Now Netflix has probably taken money into their hands again to “Black Mirror“-to get the rights and thus give the inventor of the brand the opportunity to continue.
We expect the first results to be available in 2023, i.e. a sixth season of “Black Mirror’, available to watch on Netflix.
