‘Black Mirror’ Gets Season 5 Renewal

In news that probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise, Charlie Brooker’s acclaimed anthology series Black Mirror will be returning to Netflix for a 5th Season.

‘Black Mirror’ is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.

The streaming service posted a little teaser to the @blackmirror Twitter account, featuring a number of clips from previous episodes, ending with the tagline – “Be Right Back”.

Season 4 of the dark drama saw a number of interesting additions to the memorable line up of episodes. ‘USS Callister’ starred Jesse Plemons as the lead designer of a popular MMO. However, he uses the system to create a twisted version of his favourite Star Trek-like tv show, where he is the dictator Captain, and exact copies of his real-world co-workers are his underlings. ‘Hang the DJ’ saw people matched via an app which tells them how long their relationship will last. Then there’s ‘Black Museum’... A beautifully twisted episode which sees a woman visit a museum of “authentic criminological artefacts” (some of which come from other episodes in the series), including an extremely disturbing final exhibit!

No news on exactly when Black Mirror‘ Season 5 will land, although the earliest we would expect it is Winter 2018, or early 2019. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
