Fake 'Black Mirror'-style ad says season 6 is showing now as reality

If you've felt that 2020 has felt just like an episode of the dark Netflix series Black Mirror, you're not alone.

A fake Black Mirror ad has been circulating in Madrid, claiming that season six of the show is happening right now - in real life.

The ad (which Netflix has no involvement with) reads: "Black Mirror 6th Season. Live Now, everywhere".

The creator of the ad, Brother, got inspiration for the campaign after Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker said that no new seasons of Black Mirror would be released as reality is currently feeling too much like a Black Mirror episode already.

Brooker recently told Radio Times why there isn't a season six of the series on the horizon.

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.

So there's another reason to hate 2020 - depriving us of a new season of Black Mirror.
