Charlie Brooker black mirror will return for a seventh season. Netflix has renewed the series, which ended its sixth season in June, Deadline confirmed. The sixth season premiered four years after season 5.
The darkly satirical anthology series, which is mostly set in near-future dystopias, has gone through many iterations since it launched on the UK’s Channel 4 in 2011 and the show received a budget boost when it was acquired by Netflix in 2016.
Season six topped Netflix’s streaming top 10 in 92 countries when it debuted in June and spent four weeks in Netflix’s global English-language TV top 10.
The five-episode season featured a cast including Salma Hayek, Annie Murphy, Aaron Paul, Josh Hartnett and Paapa Essiedu. The most discussed episode, Joana is horrible, followed a woman as her life is adapted into a streaming TV series, touching on AI-related themes that felt prescient during the WGA and SAG-AFTRA negotiations.
Series creator Brooker is showrunner and executive producer alongside Annabel Jones, the duo who founded the Netflix-backed show black mirror indie Broke And Bones several years ago.
Variety was first to report the renewal news.
