It’s possible that real life is becoming more and more like an episode of Black Mirror, but it won’t stop the show from continuing. Variety claims that Netflix has renewed the show for a sixth season instead of cancelling it. However, it appears that there are a few new additions this time around.

Season 6 of Black Mirror is expected to be “more cinematic in scope,” yet the specifics of the plot are unclear. This implies that episodes are no longer viewed as parts of a series but rather as stand-alone films. With just three episodes in Season 5, it shouldn’t be a problem for Season 6 to have more episodes.

Season 5 of Black Mirror was released three years ago to a lukewarm reception, making the show’s reappearance even more surprising. Creator Charlie Brooker expressed doubts about the show’s future, saying that he wasn’t convinced he had the ability to write such storylines.

As of right now, Brooker isn’t working on a story about a collapsed society since he doesn’t know how many people can tolerate it. “I’ve been creating scripts to make myself laugh because I want to revisit my comedy skill set.”

As a result of Brooker and Jones’ departure from their production business House of Tomorrow and its parent company Endemol Shine Group, there were also legal concerns to contend with. The Banijay Group acquired Endemol Shine in early 2020 and retained the rights to Black Mirror.

Netflix and Banijay appear to have struck a deal that will allow for the production of additional Black Mirror episodes.

Which is great news for Netflix. Season three of Black Mirror on Netflix has been just as popular as the first two seasons on Channel 4 in the U.K., which debuted the show in 2011. Netflix could use a jolt of high-profile and well-known content, given the rising competition from other streaming services, the migration of subscribers, and the recent run of cancellations.

No word yet on a release date for the new season according to Variety, but it appears that casting has begun. There must be an end to password sharing before everyone quits Netflix.
