“Black Mirror” can be called a number of things—intelligent, well-crafted, beautifully acted, and gripping, just to name several descriptors. But one thing that the bulk of “Black Mirror” can’t be called is uplifting. And that’s something that creator Charlie Brooker is painfully aware of, and it’s the driving force behind his reluctance to write more episodes of the sci-fi anthology series.
Brooker was recently interviewed with Radio Times, and as you might expect, the conversation eventually turned to “Black Mirror” and the future of the Netflix series. When asked about the possibility of a new season of “Black Mirror,” Brooker replied, “I’ve been busy, doing things. I don’t know what I can say about what I’m doing and not doing.”
“At the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on one of those,” he added. “I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.”Source: The Playlist
Here’s a comment by John Fiddle about that article:
Black mirror portraits dramatized possible scenarios where modern technology and society enslaves, kills or monitors people.
Imaginable, officials don’t want such topics while they are launching an app that could track our movement, behavior and social relations on a huge, if not global scale.
So black mirror is either on hold because it has been required by a government or Netflix’ interest in their customers overall mood became bigger than their greed for money.
The world needs your hardihood of self-thinking. Sometimes asking the right questions impacts more than giving the right answers.
Anyways. This hypothesis supports the theory that the corona app’s main purpose is mass surveillance and not aid. So I’m officially denying it now, because an increase in fear could result in further holds of black mirror. The current global crisis however would fit excellent as a black mirror episode.John Fiddle
