Black Mirror returns with a new season which will be broadcast on Netflix, and season 6 will be more extensive. Depending on the variety, Season 6 will have more episodes than Season 5, and each will have “a more cinematic reach”, with episodes closer to a movie than a TV show. It’s not that surprising, though, as Black Mirror has always been known for its cinematic nature and lengthy cinematic episodes.
There is no word yet on any of the Black Mirror Season 6 stories. But regardless, fans have been waiting for a while as all three episodes of Season 5 premiered in June 2019. This season was filled with popular celebrity cast. , with stars like Miley Cyrus, Andrew Scott, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II appearing in episodes.
Casting is reportedly underway for Black Mirror Season 6, but no names were mentioned in the report. There’s also no word on when filming will begin or when the season will premiere.
Series creator Charlie Brooker and his creative partner Annabel Jones are slated for Season 6, which will be their first since leaving their production company House of Tomorrow. Brooker and Jones created a new company, Broke and Bones, and Netflix was quick to invest in it.
Complicating matters, however, was that House of Tomorrow’s parent company Endemol Shine Group (which was later acquired by Banijay Group) retained the rights to Black Mirror, so Brooker and Jones were barred from doing more. of episodes until Netflix strikes a deal with Banijay. Apparently, it has happened or is about to happen, as we learn more about Season 6. However, Netflix has yet to officially announce Black Mirror Season 6.
Some fans have lost hope for Black Mirror Season 6 as Brooker himself said he might not want to do a new season as the real world is also falling apart. “I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about collapsing societies…” he said.
