Black Mirror will be right back.

It was announced on March 5 that the Netflix series will return for season 5. After the show’s fourth season, there were questions about when (or if) Charlie Brooker’s sci-fi anthology would be back. A possible spinoff of season 4 standout “USS Callister” has been proposed but not confirmed.

Here are all the details we know so far about season 5.

Black Mirror season 5 release date

Black Mirror season 4 was released on Dec. 29. Season 3 was released in October 2016. The time between seasons has typically been a year since the show arrived on Netflix, so season 5 could be here by the end of 2018. However, production has not yet started on the new season, which pushes the potential release date likely into 2019.
