Well, Black Mirror Season 6 Has More Than Enough Material to Pull From
While you all wait for the creepy virtual reality headset from "Playtest" to hit the market, it looks like Netflix is ordering a sixth season of its dystopian hit series, Black Mirror.
According to Variety, Black Mirror's creator, Charlie Brooker, will work on new episodes of the series. This marks one of the only significant bits of Black Mirror-related news we've seen since the show's fifth season debuted on June 5, 2019, also known as several lifetimes ago. Speaking to a source close to the production, Variety reports that the "latest season is even more cinematic in scope, with each installment being treated as an individual film." More nightmares for all of us, it seems. Whenever Season Six of Black Mirror hits Netflix, it will follow up the likes of last season's three-episode run, which included the Miley Cyrus-starring "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too."
This news is a little surprising to see, after Brooker told Radio Times that he wasn't sure if Black Mirror had a future past its fifth season. “At the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on one of those," he said, referring to the coronavirus pandemic. "I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.” If there's anyone we trust to put a spin on our hellish past few years that's actually required watching, it's Brooker.
No word yet on when Season Six of Black Mirror will drop, or whether any of the actors Brooker is planning on bringing to his dystopian playground. In the meantime, check out our ranking of every episode of Black Mirror so far. (Yes, even "Bandersnatch.")
