Sixth Season of Black Mirror is in Development
Published 5 months ago
Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker had put a pause on Black Mirror after things started looking bleak in 2020, but now that things are turning up, Brooker and his team are ready to delve into some more dystopian tech narratives.
According to Variety, Netflix is now working on developing the sixth season of Black Mirror. Production is said to be approaching the series with a more cinematic scope, and we can expect episodes that would take longer than the usual hour.
No details have been revealed about the upcoming stories of the sixth season, but with the pandemic opening up new thoughts and realizations about technology and how humans function with them—we should expect some kind of commentary to come out with a show like Black Mirror.
We should probably also expect some A-list talent to be part of the show as well. So far, the show has managed to nab talent like Anthony Mackie, Jon Hamm, Miley Cyrus, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Mackenzie Davis—and that’s barely scratching the surface of who else has appeared in these shows. With the next season, we should expect some of the hottest Hollywood talents to headline their own episodes. My guess is Anya Taylor-Joy (Queen’s Gambit) could appear for that cross-IP synergy when it comes to Netflix.
With the show being notorious for its bleak tone, we have been getting some more positive stories in the latter season. Will Brooker decide to keep going more optimistic, or will we see a return to the more tragic storylines of early Black Mirror?
No release date has been announced for the sixth season of Black Mirror, but I think it’s possible we could see a premiere sometime in 2023.
