black mirror

Black Mirror isn’t afraid to tell twisted dystopian stories that’ll haunt you for a while, but that’s what makes it so popular. After a four-year hiatus, the fan-favorite anthology series finally returned for a sixth season last June 2023, and it even came back with a few changes to its formula. The show experimented with adding supernatural elements into the mix, which led to some mixed reception from fans, but that didn’t stop it from being renewed for another season.

That’s right, a few months after Season 6’s release, Variety confirmed that Black Mirror will return for a seventh season. The only question now is when it’ll be released. To find out what the dystopian sci-fi series has in store for you, here’s everything you need to know about Black Mirror: Season 7.


When Is Black Mirror: Season 7 Coming Out?

As of writing, Black Mirror: Season 7 has no official release date. But don’t expect it to take as long as Season 6 took to come out.

In 2020, Black Mirror producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones left the production company House of Tomorrow, which was under Endemol Shine. Brooker and Jones went on to start their own company, Broke And Bones, but Endemol still owned the rights to Black Mirror. This meant a new season couldn’t be produced until they reached an agreement, hence the four-year delay.

Luckily, they finally made a deal with Banijay, who acquired Endemol, licensing Black Mirror to stream on Netflix again. With that, you can expect the typical 1-2 year gap between seasons, so Black Mirror: Season 7 may be released by 2024 at the earliest.


What Is Black Mirror: Season 7 About?

The producers are still tight-lipped since Black Mirror: Season 7 episode plots haven’t been revealed. But honestly, what couldn’t Black Mirror: Season 7 be about?

As an anthology series, Black Mirror has tackled different plots per episode, mostly surrounding technology and societal issues. Yet after going into supernatural horror in the previous season, who knows what else they’re considering for Black Mirror: Season 7? Only time will tell where the series goes from here on out.


Black Mirror: Season 7 Confirmed Cast

There’s no word regarding Black Mirror: Season 7’s official cast list. All we know is that in terms of production, executive producers Charlie Brooker, Annabel Jones, and Jessica Rhoades will return for the seventh season.

With each episode having a different story, the cast is regularly switched up in every season of Black Mirror. Season 6 featured prominent actors like Salma Hayek, Aaron Paul, Josh Harnett, and Annie Murphy, while other seasons before that even had celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Anthony Mackie, Jon Hamm, and Bryce Dallas Howard. Moving forward, expect more seasoned actors to join the fray for Black Mirror: Season 7.

When it does get released, US viewers can watch Black Mirror: Season 7 on Netflix. The platform has been responsible for streaming Black Mirror internationally since the beginning. To watch Black Mirror, you can pay for a Netflix subscription for as low as $6.99/month.

While waiting for Season 7, you can catch up to Black Mirror by watching it on Netflix or buying it from other platforms like Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, and Google Play.


How Many Episodes Will Black Mirror: Season 7 Have?

Unfortunately, even Black Mirror: Season 7’s episode count hasn’t been disclosed. Black Mirror seasons tend to vary in number of episodes, with the previous season having five episodes, while others had three or six. So, although it hasn’t been announced, the seventh season’s episode count will likely be around that range.

Black Mirror: Season 7 Trailer
