Netflix’s BLACK MIRROR Creator Isn’t Working On New Season Because The World’s Bleak Enough

For those of you out there that might not know, Black Mirror is a British dystopian science fiction anthology television series created by Charlie Brooker. There have been five (mostly) stellar seasons of the series thus far. But today Brooker reveals he hasn’t been working on season 6 because the world is just too dark at the moment.

He tells Radio Times: “I’ve been busy doing things. I don’t know what I can say about what I’m doing and not doing. At the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on any of those [Black Mirror episodes]. I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.”

Black Mirror examines modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. Episodes are standalone, usually set in an alternative present or the near future, often with a dark and satirical tone.

Season 5 sports a 68% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Though Black Mirror’s abbreviated fifth season never quite reaches the heights (or surprises) of previous installments, it remains one of TVs strangest philosophical offerings — for better or worse.
