‘Black Mirror’ season 5 begins filming in London

Retro-looking shopfronts spotted in Croydon

Black Mirror looks to have started filming its upcoming fifth season in South London.

As noted from previous local reports, Black Mirror is shooting on location in Croydon this week (Wednesday, April 25 and Friday, April 27), with retro-style shopfronts spotted on St George’s Walk in the town centre.

The Croydon Advertiser recently reported that letters have been sent out to local residents and business owners by production company Ealing Studios, detailing plans to film in the area.

Little is known of the episode being filmed, or its plot.

Netflix confirmed last month that Black Mirror would return for a fifth season.

A premiere date hasn’t been revealed, but it looks likely that it will be released in late 2018, given previous cycles of the show (season three was released on Netflix on October 21, 2016 and season four on December 29, 2017).

Here’s everything we know so far about Black Mirror season 5.
