Black Mirror is one of the most-watched Sci-Fi anthologies series created by Endemol. Each episode or season has a different story. Black mirror has had 5 seasons since 2011 and now there are talks in the air about the season 6 release. Charlie Brooker is the producer of the series.
It is an interesting show that has created $4.9 Billion with its 5 seasons. Fans are widespread across the world due to amazing dystopian storytelling and everyone is waiting for the next season to hit screens. So, let’s see what all we know about the history of the show and its upcoming season 6.
Black Mirror: History
It started in 2011 with the first 2 series having 3 episodes each. To date, we have witnessed 5 seasons of the Black mirror, completing 22 episodes. Earlier the show was with Channel 4, but in 2015, Netflix purchased it and streamed all previous seasons. In 2016 and 2017, Season 3 & 4 were released, consisting of 6 episodes each. Further, Netflix reduced the no of episodes in Season 5, back to 3.
Black Mirror: Season 6 Announcement & Plot
Netflix has officially confirmed the upcoming of Season 6. But there’s no date for now. It will come very soon and you’ll see the updates here asap.
Not much time has passed since the announcement of Season 6. Since the Black mirror is anthological in nature, it’s too difficult to predict the story for now. Although, as hinted in Season 5, the next season may show the interconnection between all episodes and seasons throughout. Also, it will also be based on the harmful effects and repercussions of technology, like in Season 5.
Brooker has opened up only a little about the format of the next season. He said, “We could do one-offs, we could do an ongoing story, we could do spin-off”.
The previous season was a one-off but its highly possible that we will have an ongoing story as we earlier mentioned that interconnections may be shown in this season.
Season 6 Cast
We’ve seen Season 5 starring Miley Cyrus, Andrew Scott, and Anthony Mackie. Mostly, we will see these stars back into action in Season 6 as well. However, as per Black Mirror tradition, the cast is not repeated in the same season, we may see these cast members in different episodes along with new cast members.
Also, the first 2 seasons had 3 episodes, 3rd and 4th had 6 episodes and there were films in between every time. We can expect season 6 to follow season 5 and have 3 episodes. But, we won’t be surprised if there are more than 3 episodes too.
