Finally! It’s happening. After a long while, when the fans of the series started losing hope for its continuation, the hit series “Black Mirror” is back with its 6th season, and will it be back for season 7 too?
The series is to be aired in June of 2023, consisting of a batch of 5 episodes. As always, it was bound to be on the darker takes with the jaw-dropping mysterious twists. However, this time the author tried to take a bold turn with the stories.
Looking at how the new season changed its main focus from the usual sci-fi niche to the more dramatic ones. From the horrific possibilities of A.I to the complexity of human emotions. It is true to be said, the surprise was unprecedented, though it was a welcome one.
Considering how it had made its way to Netflix’s global Top 10 series. It is easy to deduce how much success this new season garnered in the short while.
Nonetheless, is it really enough for the possibility of a new season? Follow me through and let’s take a deep dive at the odds of it happening.
Is There A Release Date For The 7th Season?
Well, currently there is no circulating news for the 7th season in the landscape. But with the success it is currently enjoying it is honestly a pretty much done deal. After all, Black Mirror is one of the unique cases where it can be expanded indefinitely.
Now if we will have to take a guess, as to when it is going to happen. We will have to go through the previous records of the series.
How between 2016- 2019, there were back-to-back three sequels for us to immerse ourselves in, along with a stand-alone movie. However, we should take into account the four-year delay we experienced before the sixth season. Though the odds of it happening next year is marginal.
Well no matter, you can just follow the feeds for further updates regarding the series.
What Can We Expect From The New Seasons? Is It Going To Take A Turn Like The Airing Season?
The “Black Mirror” series had always been based on grim tones and bleak takes throughout the entirety of its run. So, there is no doubt, it is going to continue down this road in the future too.
With the experiments Brooker went through in the new season, to craft a different tone for the series. It is to be seen if he had other ideas in his mind too(Spoilers: he does)
“I’ve never done an animated episode or a musical episode,” he added to the questioner.
“Again, all bets are off, because, again, in this season, we’ve got some that are almost old-school horror, and we’ve got some that are retro-futuristic, and we’ve got ones that are out-and-out comedy. So it’s the right mix. So I don’t know. Anything. Bloody anything!”
“By the end, I was saying, ‘Oh I’ve got an idea’. It’s something I would like to do again and I think there are lots of ways to tackle it.”
With all of these quotes floating around the internet, we can at least narrow down the speculation. Although we can never truly guess what the future holds.
