Good news. Your favorite dystopian show Black Mirror has been renewed for a fifth season. Netflix confirmed the news about season 5 on Twitter, sending out a cryptic message with the tagline “Be Right Back.” The fourth season of Black Mirror was released on Netflix late last year so it’s going to be a while before we are able to view the next season. Still, it’s nice to know it will be back.
Netflix picked up this show from Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones after it was launched with the UK’s Channel 4. The third and fourth seasons then premiered on the online streaming service.
We don’t have a lot of information so far about the upcoming season but it is very early yet. We do know that as usual, Black Mirror season 5 will try to push the boundaries of dystopian fiction even further than it has already. The fourth season of the anthology series covered topics like robotic dogs, dating apps, and more.
We also don’t have a date yet or an episode count. We will just have to be patient and wait for more news to come our way. It’s good to know it will be back though.
