‘Black Mirror’ Returning to Netflix After 3 Year Hiatus With Season 6

A new series of “Black Mirror” is in the works at Netflix, Variety reports.


It’s been almost three years since Season 5 of the dystopian drama premiered on the streaming service in June 2019, but sources indicate that a new anthology series of “Black Mirror” is shaping up, and casting is now underway.



While details about specific stories are being kept under lock and key, Season 6 will reportedly have more episodes than Season 5, which comprised of just three installments and starred Andrew Scott, Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace and Miley Cyrus (who stars in what many consider to be the worst episode of the series).


A source close to the production indicates that the latest season is even more cinematic in scope, with each instalment being treated as an individual film. This is, of course, in line with recent seasons of “Black Mirror,” for which episodes usually exceeded 60 minutes and had incredibly high production values.
