Here’s why Black Mirror’s Charlie Brooker isn’t making a new season for now
Because isn't the current reality dystopic enough?

MANILA, Philippines – Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker said he isn’t working on a new season for now, and while fans of the show may not like this news, really, he’s doing it for all our sakes.

In an interview with Radio Times he said: “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.”

He said that he’s instead going back to his comedy roots, and is writing scripts to make himself laugh.

Black Mirror is a science fiction anthology series first launched in 2011. Known for its dark humor and even darker storylines, the show takes a look at how innovation and technology sometimes takes society a step too far.

The show currently counts 5 seasons. The most recent one was released on Netflix in June 2019, and had only 3 episodes. Prior to that, Charlie also worked on Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, a choose-your-own-adventure film, which came out in December 2018. – Rappler.com
