Get ready to scream in excitement, and likely a bit of terror, as Netflix has announced that they’re officially bringing ‘Black Mirror’ back for a fifth season! At this time we only know about the renewal. That means there are no details on the length of the season, when it might be released, or what surprise stars or directors could pop up for this fantastic anthology series.
If the first four seasons are any indication, we’re going to be in for a real treat when this one comes to Netflix!
The news comes by riffing on “Be Right Back” though don’t get your hopes up on new footage. While there are plenty of iconic shots from the previous seasons, chances are filming has yet to begin on the fifth one.
You can check the teaser here which doesn’t actually give us much outside of the fact that one of our favorite Netflix shows is set to return!

The future WILL be brighter than ever!
Charlie Brooker has a hit on his hands when ‘Black Mirror’ was initially released and has only grown exponentially when it came to Netflix.
It will be interesting to see if they plan on using this to further develop a shared universe or keep them subtly connected as they’ve been doing so far. As much as I love connected worlds, I think the idea of leaving these only loosely related would be the best way to go.
While we’re waiting for the upcoming season details which will likely be a year off, maybe Netflix can throw us a bone and announce that “USS Callister” will be developed as a spinoff series.
