Netflix’s hit series Black Mirror is returning for season 6. The news about Black Mirror Season 6 came as a shock to fans. The creator of the show Charlie Brooker dismissed any rumors about season 6 of the show back in 2020. According to him due to COVID-19, the audience would have a difficult time watching the dystopian series. He said this during an interview with Radio Times:
“At the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on one of those. I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.”
This was not the only reason for the delay of Black Mirror Season 6. Annabel Jones and Charlie Brooker left the House of Tomorrow production company managed by Endemol Shine company. The creators were hesitating to work on season 6 of the show because of production issues. However, Brooker and Jones have started their own production company “Broke and Bones”. Netflix has invested a lot of money in its production company and there will be more future shows like “Black Mirror” on the streaming giant. Broke and Bones production company also created “Death to 2020” for Netflix which received mixed reviews from fans and critics.
