Black Mirror Season 6 Confirmation Status: Is Netflix Going To Release Season 6?
Netflix has not ordered any new episodes of Black Mirror, but we cannot say that Netflix canceled the show. The issue with a new season comes down to which studio holds the rights to produce more seasons.
Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, the showrunners of Black Mirror, announced in January 2020 that they would be departing. If the cast had their say about Black Mirror season 6, we can only imagine that they will want to invest in a new series with Brooker and Jones.
Season 6 starts on June 21 and will be 6 episodes long. However, the show can’t continue indefinitely because Endemol has international distribution rights.
In a recent interview with Radio Times Brooker says he isn’t sure if anyone wants to see more Black Mirror series after 2019’s COVID-19 pandemic the episode.
After acquiring Endemol in the summer of 2019, Banijay Group’s distribution department head Cathy Payne told Variety it might be possible to see Black Mirror Season 6 happening potentially near term. Given the popularity of the show, it’s likely that networks will release new episodes.

If Netflix or Banijay confirms an agreement by the end of 2019 season 6 is likely to be released no later than 2022.
How many episodes of Black Mirror Season 6 are coming out?
Black Mirror features six episodes in Seasons 3 and 4. Given this precedent, Season 6 may have 3-6 new episodes. Netflix usually announces the episode titles of each new season when they release a trailer.

The sixth installment of Black Mirror has not been confirmed yet, but the episode 5 trailer reminds us what an epic show this is. Black Mirror is making waves after its latest episode that features robot police dogs patrolling the streets of New York.
