Netflix has given us one of the most acclaimed anthology series in recent memory with Black Mirror, and they’re not letting go of it anytime soon. After returning for its sixth season earlier this year, Charlie Brooker’s hit series has been renewed for another season.

The episodes of Black Mirror are mostly set in the dystopian future, and they explore the impact of technology on the world around us. Black Mirror originally aired on the British network Channel 4, before moving to Netflix after its second season and the acclaimed holiday special “White Christmas”.

Season 6 of this hit series was a long time coming, and it finally premiered on Netflix back in June. The opening episode “Joan Is Awful” created the most buzz with its AI-related themes and Charlie Brooker said it’s unfortunate to see how it predicted the future.

“That was written and wrapped before ChatGPT and stuff like that launched… I worry for a living — it’s generally what I do— and I’m very worried about AI and the use of ChatGPT and things like that. That’s a particular concern to me, so that’s why I’m here,” Brooker told Variety.

Season 6 of Black Mirror featured six episodes and starred Aaron Paul, Annie Murphy, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Salma Hayek, Zazie Beetz, and Paapa Essiedu, among others. Netflix has yet to share any additional information about its follow-up.
