about a month ago, charlie brooker — the creator of black mirror — said on a radio show that season 6 of the acclaimed dystopic TV show was on hold.
During the live talk, he explained that the dark future he was presenting didn’t feel to him like the right fit for the public right now. ‘at the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart,’ brooker explained. ‘so I’m not working away on any of those black mirror episodes.’
While the fake ad announced a sixth season of the controversial dystopian TV show — and with such conviction it fooled many on social media — creator Charlie Brooker told UK media last month that a sixth season is not actually in the works.
And for a pertinent reason. “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,” Brooker told Radio Times. “I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.”
