What is the renewal status of Black Mirror Season 7?

As of writing this, the seventh season has not yet been announced by the network as the brand new sixth season premiered all the new episodes on Netflix a few days ago on June 15, 2023, making it unreasonable to ask for any updates about a potential seventh-season renewal. It is evidently too soon for any major network to make such a significant statement in such a short period of time. So, the fans should wait for the network to acknowledge the potential renewal of Black Mirror for a 7th season!  

Will Black Mirror Season 7 be renewed?

Even though the current status of Season 7 is neither here nor there, the signs are pointing toward a yes! We just may have to wait a while for any confirmation from the network! Moreover, we should keep in mind that the show’s creator, Charlie Brooker, has previously hinted that Season 6 may not actually be the end of Black Mirror. He said, “I don’t know what the future holds for the show.” This kind of clears up that there still might be plans for the show’s ultimate return sometime in the future. 

The fans are hopeful that they still might be discussing whether to make another season or not, which will be revealed later.

Black Mirror Season 7 release date

If the seventh season gets renewed sometime around late 2023, which is two to three months after the release of the sixth season as the network might take time to evaluate the overall reception of the series in order to make the final decision. So, we anticipate that the show’s possible release date will be sometime around 2025 or even later, only if it is granted an early renewal in order for the production to proceed smoothly and no further delays happen, like when the last season returned after four long years of hiatus! 

Hence, fans should also closely monitor social media to learn more about the series’ destiny.

Black Mirror Season 7 filming status

If the series is renewed by late 2023 or even early 2024, then there is a chance that the filming might take some time to officially begin, as this series usually takes a bit of a hiatus between seasons. So, there might be a huge gap for the fans to once again binge-watch the brand new season of this British anthology television series created by Charlie Brooker if it ever happens, as the possibility of the sixth season being the final season still remains positive.

Black Mirror Season 7 cast

Given the show’s anthology nature, it’s doubtful that any known figures from previous seasons will return. So, if Season 7 is released, it will very definitely have a whole new cast with some recurring cast that might return only if the story requires them to be.

If renewed, what to expect from the plot?

It’s way too early to guess about the plotlines, as the show’s creators haven’t even mentioned the seventh season, so receiving any confirmed details regarding the plot is way too early! 

But if we have to speculate, the new season is definitely going to stick to the premise, which is based on The Twilight Zone and uses technology to comment on contemporary social issues, and showcases individual episodes explore a diversity of genres, but most are set in near-future dystopias with sci-fi technology—a type of speculative fiction. The possibility of further episodes appears to be open, even if Brooker and his crew are now focused on other tasks. 

We are certain that Netflix has had such great success with Black Mirror that they would probably want to continue the series if they could. 

There is also no shortage of issues and concepts to explore in the show’s distinctively frightening manner, given how quickly technology is developing. There are still plenty of technological features that might serve as sources of inspiration. Some viewers contend that the show has previously addressed a variety of technological dystopias, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, social media, privacy, and twisted nightmares!

Black Mirror Season 6: A Quick Recap

The sixth season of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror returns with five ground-breaking new stories, which include twisted tales that span eras – and terrors – deliver a myriad of surprises in this game-changing anthology series’ most unpredictable season yet. “I’ve always felt that Black Mirror should feature stories that are entirely distinct from one another and keep surprising people — and myself — or else what’s the point? It should be a series that can’t be easily defined and can keep reinventing itself,” the writer, creator, and executive producer said

“Partly as a challenge, and partly to keep things fresh for both me and the viewer, I began this season by deliberately upending some of my own core assumptions about what to expect,” he says. “Consequently, this time, alongside some of the more familiar Black Mirror tropes we’ve also got a few new elements, including some I’ve previously sworn blind the show would never do, to stretch the parameters of what ‘a Black Mirror episode’ even is. The stories are all still tonally Black Mirror through-and-through — but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before.” 

The cast members include Aaron Paul, Anjana Vasan, Annie Murphy, Auden Thornton, Ben Barnes, Clara Rugaard, Daniel Portman, Danny Ramirez, David Shields, Himesh Patel, John Hannah, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Monica Dolan, Myha’la Herrold, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, Rory Culkin, Salma Hayek Pinault, Samuel Blenkin and Zazie Beetz. The series is written and created by Charlie Brooker, counts Brooker, Jessica Rhoades, Annabel Jones, and Bisha K. Ali among its executive producers, and comes from Brooker and Jones’ production company Broke & Bones. 

Last but not least, Black Mirror Season 6, along with all the previous seasons, is available exclusively for streaming on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible with a range of membership options. The video quality and the number of screens you can use to stream Netflix simultaneously depend on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month at no additional cost with any of their services.
