Black Mirror Season 7: Renewal, Creator Comments & Everything We Know

With plenty of Netflix subscribers having binged the latest season, there’s already a demand to know what the future holds for the anthology franchise with any Black Mirror season 7 news. Created by Charlie Brooker, the series takes a look at the potential dark sides of modern technology and the disturbing places these advancements could be taking humanity. With new directors and actors used in each episode, the show tells a wide variety of exciting and thought-provoking stories. Black Mirror began in 2011 as a British series before continuing on as a Netflix original series.



Black Mirror season 6 offered a new collection of episodes from directors like Toby Haynes and John Crowley, and featuring actors like Annie Murphy, Josh Hartnett, and Zazie Beetz. However, season 6 also strayed from the expected Black Mirror format, with less of a focus on technology at the center of the stories and episodes that take place, not just in the near future, but also in the past. The change in approach was met with mixed reactions from viewers and there are many wondering what these changes mean for Black Mirror season 7.

The Black Mirror season 7 episode stories won’t be revealed for some time. However, it looks like there is some intention to change things with the “Red Mirror” episodes introduced in the latest season. There has been considerable backlash against the episodes that deviate from what is expected, with some feeling that the “Red Mirror” episodes fail to match the quality of standard Black Mirror stories and existing supernatural horror anthologies.

Series creator Charlie Brooker spoke about why the Black Mirror season 6 episodes were so different, and Brooker explained that he was boxed in by the format. He shared, “I don’t want to sit here feeling like I’m in a box where I have to write an episode about NFTs or whatever’s on the tech pages today. That’s not what the show was ever intended to do.” If Brooker continues this trend for the seventh season, all bets are off on what to expect in the next Black Mirror season.
