It has been more than a year since Netflix blessed fans with Black Mirror Season 5, but there are no words yet if there will be Black Mirror Season 6. With everything that is happening today, which the show's creator, Charlie Brooker, said made people depressed, would fans continue seeing the dystopian science fiction anthology?
According to Fox Exclusive, modern technology will be more dangerous when Black Mirror Season 6 makes its way on Netflix. As one of the most popular shows on the streaming giant, a new season may soon be in the works.
So far, Netflix has dropped five seasons and an interactive movie, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, but it has bee years since these shows dropped. Will a new season still come to fruition?
Without a formal announcement of its ending or cancellation, fans remain hopeful that a new season will come. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, just like other shows, this eccentric TV series may also experience some delay. But when it returns, fans can expect more twists are coming, relating to its famous dark concept and nature.
Anyhow, with 2020's turn of events, some said it is a real-life Black Mirror season. Screenrant noted Brooker himself wondered if with the current state of the world, would people still support a new season.
He told Radio Times he is not working on writing a new season as of late because people seem to be in real-life "nightmarish dystopia," which is usually explored in the show. Does this mean the show will be canceled?
Fans continuously clamoring to see Black Mirror Season 6, but making a new season is not as easy as it looks, especially since Brooker and co-showrunner Annabel Jones left House of Tomorrow. The two left the production company in hopes of pursuing an overall deal with Netflix on their own.
Later, Banijay Group bought Endemol Shine which used to hold the rights of Black Mirror, but fans did not have to worry that it would be the end of the seris. Its executive Cathy Payne revealed the network would like to continue working with Netflix to create the show's future seasons.
However, it only means that Netflix has to create a new deal with Brooker and Jones' new Broke and Bones company to remain the series' creator and showrunner. It also has to make another deal with Banijay to license the Black Mirror IP that comes with a considerable price.
As Netflix is willing to buy the title's IP outright, it looks like the owner has no plans to give up one of its biggest shows.
