We still do not have a definite answer to whether there will be a season 6 for the Black Mirror. But given the enormous success of the show, the future looks hopeful.
The show is a sci-fi treasury series which is created by Charlie Brooker. It focuses on a high-tech near-future where humanity’s greatest modernization and darkest tendencies collide and the consequences that arise from it.
The first two series of the show were aired on Channel 4, each series encompassing three episodes from 2011 to 2013 with a supplementary special episode “White Christmas” airing in 2014.
Netflix purchased the show in 2015 and released the third and fourth series each encompassing six episodes in 2016 and 2017 respectively. The fifth series comprising of three episodes featured in June 2019. Netflix also released a collective film in the series named Black Mirror: Bandersnatch in 2018.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
The show’s popularity showed an abrupt rise after the release of Bandersnatch.
The scene is set in London in the 1980s. A 19-year-old game developer Stefan, played by Fionn Whitehead, is in the process of twisting a choose-your-own-adventure book into a video game.
He soon begins to interrogate reality when he realizes that he no longer acquires free decision. Some force beyond his control is constraining him to make his decisions and this is where the viewers connect.
The viewers get to decide which direction should Stefan take right from choosing a box of cereal to whether he should murder his father or not. The story takes different tracks depending on what the viewers choose for Stefan.
Possible Cast For The Season:
There are no categorical reports on who all we can see in the next season. But we can expect some renowned faces as in the previous seasons we have seen the likes of Miley Cyrus, Anthony Mackie, and Bryce Dallas Howard ease the show.
Due to the complicated process of the film Bandersnatch, the release of the fifth series of the show was postponed by six months. So it’s fairly evident that we might have to wait a little longer before any official disclosures for the sixth season are made.
