Project Casting

Netflix renews Black Mirror for a fifth Season.

“Black Mirror” originally debuted on TV in 2011 before it was picked up by Netflix in 2016 for seasons three and four. The sci-fi series features stand-alone episodes that explore the impact of new technology on society. The show has been widely acclaimed by critics and earned two Emmy Awards for its season three episode “San Junipero.” A premiere date for the new season has yet to be announced.

Black Mirror was inspired by older TV shows like The Twilight Zone, which were able to deal with controversial, contemporary topics without fear of censorship. Brooker developed Black Mirror to highlight topics related to humanity’s dependency on technology, creating stories that feature “the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes’ time if we’re clumsy.”
