It is sure that Season 5 will bring fans back into London 1980s. The utopia-set San Junipero in season 3 was outstanding. Fans have been asking Brooker to produce a sequel. Despite the requests from fans, each episode of Season 5 will be entirely different from others, and all the episodes are standalone.
Brooker is confident that the story will not be visiting the characters of San Junipero. He said unless the reasons very strong the sequel is not on the cards. He will not be doing any episode regarding the San Junipero but thinks that it might extend in an alternate form. Brooker prefers a graphic novel adaptation of San Junipero.
