IT’S OFFICIAL: ‘Black Mirror’ will be right back with a fifth season

Netflix-loving millennials probably would’ve heard about speculations that Black Mirror Season 4 is the last season in the British science-fiction anthology television series created by Charlie Brooker. While some souls were slightly crushed by this possibility, given that the Black Museum (S04E06) seemed to look like a redeeming closing episode after all the horrors of the previous stories, March is off to a good start for us since we’ve just got word that there is more of Black Mirror on the way.

Patience is a virtue“, reminds Netflix Philippines in their latest press release. With it comes the announcement that its utterly addictive, Emmy Award-winning anthology series has been renewed for a much-anticipated Season 5.

 Black MIrror took to Twitter this teaser for a new season with a caption that says: “The future will be brighter than ever.” It doesn’t explain a lot but it seems to be hinting at the upcoming season filled with the joys and perils of a technologically advanced world. The 17-second teaser also include snippets from previous episodes like San Junipero, Fifteen Million Merits, Nosedive, USS Callister, and The National Anthem. 

Watch it here:

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 leading to an unforgettable – and sometimes unsettling – conclusion. 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 series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.

While we’re waiting, let’s look back on Black Mirror Seasons 1-4, all streaming now on Netflix, and stay tuned for more!
