Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror will return for a seventh season. Netflix has renewed the series, which wrapped its sixth season in June, Deadline has confirmed. The sixth season premiered four years after Season 5.
The darkly satirical anthology series, which is mostly set in near-future dystopias, has been through many iterations since it launched on the UK’s Channel 4 in 2011 and the show was given a budget boost when it was picked up by Netflix in 2016.

The sixth season soared to the top of Netflix’s Streaming Top 10 in 92 countries when it premiered in June and spent four weeks in Netflix’s global top 10 English-speaking TV.
The five-episode season featured cast including Salma Hayek, Annie Murphy, Aaron Paul, Josh Hartnett and Paapa Essiedu. The most-discussed ep, “Joan is Awful”, followed a woman as her life is adapted into a streaming TV series, tapping into AI-related themes that felt prescient during the WGA and SAG-AFTRA negotiations.
Series creator Brooker showruns and exec produces along with Annabel Jones, the pair of whom founded Netflix-backed Black Mirror indie Broke And Bones several years ago. Jessica Rhoades also executive produces.
Variety was first to report news of the renewal.
