Black Mirror has been renewed for a fifth season on Netflix. The streaming service confirmed the renewal in an email to The Verge and released a cryptic teaser on Twitter with the tagline “Be Right Back.”
The fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s sci-fi anthology series premiered on Netflix at the tail end of 2017. The six-episode season explored topics like dating apps, surveillance, robotic dogs, and the Black Mirror universe itself. Some episodes were more successful than others, and as it enters into a new season, the series will have to decide how to keep pushing the boundaries of dystopian fiction.
In classic Black Mirror style, very little information has been disclosed about what the new season will cover or when it will premiere.
