Black Mirror Season 7 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Black Mirror Season 7 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Created by Charlie Brooker and originally airing on Channel 4 in the UK, Black Mirror was a huge success.

Taking its inspiration from The Twilight Zone, the show features scenarios set in the near future, largely commentating on social issues and advancing technology.

After the first two series aired in the UK in 2011 and 2013, Black Mirror then moved to Netflix.

Three more seasons followed in 2016, 2017 and 2019, plus the standalone Black Mirror: Bandersnatch in 2018.

Season 5 was more slimmed down and instead of the usual six episodes, only had three. Thankfully we got a couple more for season 6 when five episodes dropped on June 15th 2023.

So that begs the question – will there be a Black Mirror season 7?

When Is Black Mirror Season 7 Coming Out?

Black Mirror is an anthology series which means that non of the episodes are related to each other, and each has its own distinct storyline, cast and characters.

Because of that, each episode requires everything to be new, so it's like making a series of mini-movies.

So where are we up to with Season 7 of Black Mirror? We know that Netflix confirmed the 7th season in November 2023 which is great news!

With production due to begin in early 2024, no casting has yet been confirmed for the new season.

It also looks like Charlie Brooker, Annabel Jones and Jessica Rhoades will return as executive producers.

And like every season that came before it, plot details and number of episodes are still being kept quiet.

Of course, when we get more details, we will update you!

Confirmed Cast For Black Mirror Season 7

While we don't know which famous faces will be gracing our screen in Black Mirror season 7, every season the cast gets bigger and better for the show.

Anyone remember the excitement when Miley Cyrus was confirmed for season 5? Or Selma Hayek in season 6?

We know that the cast for season 7 will be just as impressive. But while we wait to find out who they will be, let's look back at some of the stars that have lit up the show in the past.

Daniel Kaluuya

Daniel Kaluuya played Bing Madsen in Season 1 (Fifteen Million Merits).

Bing lives in a dystopian world where people earn “merits” by pedaling exercise bikes.

He spends all his merits to help a woman he's infatuated with enter a talent show, only to see her exploited by the system.

This leads to a passionate, televised rant that ironically makes him a star within the same oppressive system.

Hayley Atwell

Atwell played Martha in Season 2 (Be Right Back), is a young woman who loses her boyfriend, Ash, in a car accident.

She then uses a new technology that creates a digital version of Ash based on his online communications and social media profiles.

The technology progresses to the point where she gets a synthetic body that resembles Ash, leading to complex emotional and ethical dilemmas.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm played Matt Trent in the Special Episode White Christmas.

Matt is skilled in human manipulation and uses this skill in various capacities, including helping single men woo women and converting consciousness into AI.

His actions lead to tragic consequences, and the episode explores themes of isolation and digital consciousness.

Bryce Dallas Howard

One of the more famous chacters in the Black Mirror universe, Howard played Lacie Pound in Season 3 (Nosedive).

Lacie lives in a world where people rate each other for every interaction, affecting their socioeconomic status.

Obsessed with improving her rating to access privileged housing, Lacie goes to great lengths to impress high-rated people.

Her journey to a high-profile wedding to boost her score spirals into a series of misfortunes, leading to a breakdown and eventual liberation from the rating system.

Anthony Mackie

In Season 5, Striking Vipers, Danny is a married man who reconnects with his old friend Karl through a virtual reality fighting game called “Striking Vipers.”

Their in-game interactions evolve into a complex virtual affair, challenging Danny's notions of identity, sexuality, and fidelity.

Jesse Plemons

Rated as one of the best ever episodes of Black Mirror, Jesse Plemons plays the iconic Robert Daly in Season 4's USS Callister.

Daly is a talented but socially awkward programmer who co-created a popular online game.

He secretly builds a modded version of the game, where he imports digital clones of his co-workers into a Star Trek-like world, forcing them to bend to his will.

The episode delves into themes of power, virtual reality, and the ethics of digital consciousness.

Miley Cyrus

Cyrus flexed her acting chops once again as Ashley O in Season 5's episode Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too.

Ashley O is a pop star who feels constrained and exploited by her management, led by her aunt.

The episode explores themes of celebrity, autonomy, and exploitation through the lens of Ashley's life and her AI doll, Ashley Too, which becomes sentient.

Angourie Rice

Also in the same episode as Miley Cyrus, Angournie Rice played Rachel, a teenage girl who is a big fan of Ashley O and receives an Ashley Too doll as a gift.

She forms a deep connection with the doll, which later plays a crucial role in uncovering the dark reality behind Ashley O's pop star life.

Salma Hayek

If ever there was a role to suit Selma Hayek, it was playing herself in Season 6.

For those who didn't see it, in Joan is Awful, Joan (Annie Murphy) finds herself locked in a loop where her every move is instantly played out on a streaming platform show.

In it, Joan's character is portrayed by Salma Hayek, who doesn't even realise she is being used in the show. It's all very meta.

Sarah Snook

Sarah Snook who we all love from Succession, played Medina in the Season 3 episode Men Against Fire.

Medina is a military leader in a future where soldiers are equipped with neural implants that enhance their abilities in combat against mutant creatures known as “roaches.”

The episode delves into the psychological and ethical implications of warfare, manipulation, and the true nature of the enemy.

Black Mirror Season 7 – What to Expect

Details about upcoming episodes are very scarce. Charlie Brooker likes to keep plots and characters under wraps for as long as possible.

Even when the trailers come out, it's still pretty tricky to figure out the exact plot for each episode.

Whatever happens, the seventh season of Black Mirror looks like it will be the most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected yet.
