Charlie Brooker, the creator of Black Mirror, says that he has stopped writing new episodes because he doesn’t think there will be much ‘stomach’ for the dystopian show, given that society is actually collapsing for real.
When Brooker was asked about the potential for a sixth season of Black Mirror he told The Radio Times that “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 any of those [Black Mirror episodes].”
“I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.” he added.
