"Black Mirror" Creator Says The World Is Too Bleak Right Now For A New Season Of It, And Of Course People Had Thoughts On That
"I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart."
As anyone who has seen it will attest, Black Mirror is both a brilliant dystopian anthology series and a modern-day version of the Twilight Zone.
And while the British series has been releasing new seasons semi-regularly since 2011 — and a new season or a film each year since 2016 (when it moved to Netflix) — there has been no announcement on when a new season would be coming.
Well, in a recent interview with the UK's Radio Times, the show's creator, Charlie Brooker, was asked when there would be a new season, and his answer was pretty frank.
Charlie thinks things are, well, too fucked up right now for a new season of Black Mirror, saying:
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.
