Black Mirror Is Returning To Netflix For Season 6

Black Mirror Is Returning To Netflix For Season 6

The new instalment is set to be 'even more cinematic in scope' and each episode will be 'treated as an individual film'.

Netflix is reportedly gearing up for another season of Black Mirror.

Variety reports the incredible, mind-blowing and, quite frankly, terrifying series will be back for a sixth instalment on the streaming service after a three-year break.

And, it appears that we're in for one hell of a season as well.


A source close to production has told the news outlet that season six will be 'even more cinematic in scope' and each episode will be 'treated as an individual film'.

Considering that most Black Mirror episodes are pretty lengthy and visually stunning, we could be in for some very juicy content.

We've been all waiting for new material after season five premiered back in June 2019.

Sadly, there were only three episodes in that instalment, all of which were all pretty interesting. However, three was a far-cry away from the six we got in seasons three and four.


While we were thrown a bone with the Bandersnatch movie, a choose-your-own-adventure that was actually technologically impressive, some diehard fans wanted more standalone episodes that took them into a harrowing extrapolated version of our future.

Series creator, Charlie Brooker, questioned whether the world was even interested in seeing more episodes of Black Mirror.

In an interview with Radio Times in 2020, Brooker cast doubt on making more instalments of the celebrated show.

"I've been busy, doing things. I don't know what I can say about what I'm doing and not doing," he explained.

"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.

"I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.”

Bizarrely, in the same year Brooker made those comments, an advertisement in Spain went viral for claiming season six was 'live'.

Created by a Madrid-based agency called Brother ad school, a photoshopped image appeared, depicting a mirror on a bus stop which reads: "Black Mirror 6th Season. Live Now, everywhere."

The image - of course - wasn't actually found on any bus stops anywhere, but it gave the impression that people have been snapping selfies in the mirror, while wearing face masks and gloves as the Covid-19 pandemic was in full force at that time.

Netflix eventually confirmed to LADbible that the ad was not officially connected to the show, or to the streaming service.

It's unclear when we might get to see Black Mirror season six drop onto the streaming service, so we'll just have to sit tight and wait for more news on that front.
