Netflix Puts Up An Ad For Black Mirror’s Season 6, Says Its “Live Now, Everywhere”

Netflix Puts Up An Ad For Black Mirror’s Season 6, Says Its “Live Now, Everywhere”

bored panda - 3 months ago

People have been saying that 2020 looks like some kind of dystopian book or TV series for quite a while now. We started the year with Australian bushfires ravaging the world, then went straight on to coronavirus pandemic and now people flood the streets all across America to protest the killing of George Floyd. While all of it really sounds more like a screenplay for TV series, it is the reality of 2020.

The online streaming company Netflix spotted the similarities of recent events and their cult series “Black Mirror” and has recently released haunting ads, saying the reality is the show’s 6th season.

 

Many Black Mirror fans were eager to find out when will its 6th season will hit the screens

Black Mirrors creator Charlie Brook has saddened the fans all over the world, saying that season 6 of the dystopian show was on hold. At the moment, I dont know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so Im not working away on any of those Black Mirror episodes, he explained.

Haunting ads appear in Madrid, saying it has already been released as reality

However, in the light of recent events, a Madrid-based Brother Ad company has designed a clever yet shockingly haunting poster for the show, saying the things happening now is the season 6 live now, everywhere. Just reading it sends shivers down your spine.
