Black Mirror has been renewed for the fifth season on Netflix. The transmission service confirmed the renewal in an email to The Verge and launched a cryptic advance on Twitter with the slogan "Be Right Back".
The fourth season of Charlie Brooker's science fiction anthology series debuted on Netflix in late 2017. The six-episode season explored topics such as dating apps, surveillance, robotic dogs and the Black Mirror universe itself. Some episodes were more successful than others, and when it enters a new season, the series will have to decide how to continue pushing the boundaries of dystopian fiction.
In the classic Black Mirror style, very little information has been divulged about what the new season will cover or when it will be released.
