7 best shows to watch on Netflix for Black Mirror fans

Black Mirror is not coming to Netflix with new seasons soon. However, many fans are longing for more dark sci-fi in its dystopian future.

Dystopia has always been a popular theme. With the release of Black Mirror, the bar is set even higher. With each thought-provoking, dark episode, Black Mirror leaves the viewers with a lot of questions regarding our future.

The last season of Black Mirror, which is the fifth one, came to Netflix in June 2019. Nevertheless, we haven’t heard anything official about a new season yet. The fans are still waiting for new episodes of the series.

As Black Mirror season 6 is not going to happen anytime soon, we have listed some other shows you can check out. Here are the seven best movies or series to watch if you enjoy Black Mirror.

Love, Death & Robots

Have you ever wondered “What if somebody made Black Mirror, but animated?” Well, that’s oddly specific, so probably not. Still, Love, Death & Robots is a perfect example of this. It’s a dark sci-fi anthology series with each episode taking place in different universes. Just like Black Mirror, the animated focuses on the dark side of humanity in the future. Created by David Fincher, this animated series is both popular and critically acclaimed.

You can watch the two seasons of Love, Death & Robots on Netflix right now. The next season is coming in 2022.


Even though it’s not an anthology like Love, Death & Robots and Black Mirror, Maniac has a pretty interesting plot. Starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, this mini-series is about two strangers who agree to take a drug that they believe can solve all of their problems, with no side effects. As you can imagine, things do not go as they expected.

You can watch all of the ten episodes of Maniac on Netflix.

Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon is among the most popular sci-fi Netflix Originals. Based on the 2002 novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan, the series focuses on the dangers of cloning and transferring human consciousness from one body to another in a cyberpunk setting.

There are currently two seasons of Altered Carbon that you can watch on Netflix. Unfortunately, the series is canceled.

Lost in Space

If you’re more interested in the space aspect of Black Mirror, here’s a series for you. Lost in Space tells of a family who is selected to go to space. However, they have to crashland on an alien planet and try to survive against all odds.

There are currently two seasons of Lost in Space on Netflix. The third season, which is going to be the last one, is probably coming by the end of 2021.


Limitless tells the story of an average 28-year-old man whose life changes dramatically after taking a pill that enhances his performance. He becomes incredibly agile and smart, but he isn’t the only one who uses or seeks this drug.

You can watch all of the 22 episodes of Limitless on Netflix. Do not forget to check out its movie, too.


Sense8 tells of a group of people who are mentally linked to each other. They must act together to stay alive against people who think them to be a threat.

There are currently two seasons of Sense8 on Netflix. The series is over right now.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

That Black Mirror experience is rather unorthodox because it takes place in the past and it’s interactive. Bandersnatch tells of a young man who aspires to be a game developer, but the story takes not-so-innocent turns as we progress through the movie.
