Black Mirror is back with a sixth season after a three-year hiatus and it’s premiering really soon!
The hit Netflix series from Charlie Brooker is returning to the streamer this June with yet another stunning cast. This season’s boasts stars Aaron Paul, Anjana Vasan, Annie Murphy, Auden Thornton, Ben Barnes, Clara Rugaard, Daniel Portman, Danny Ramirez, Himesh Patel, John Hannah, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Monica Dolan, Myha’la Herrold, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, Rory Culkin, Salma Hayek Pinault, Samuel Blenkin and Zazie Beetz.
As seen by the official teaser trailer released by Netflix, this season stays true to its dark, dysfunctional and dystopian tone that fans love Black Mirror for. It also appears to be a lot more violent than previous seasons.
Black Mirror has always assumed an anthology format and while it is unclear if this season will remain the same, Brooker promises that season six will be the most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected season yet.
“I’ve always felt that Black Mirror should feature stories that are entirely distinct from one another, and keep surprising people (and myself) or else what’s the point?” said Brooker. “It should be a series that can’t be easily defined and can keep reinventing itself.”
“So partly as a challenge, and partly to keep things fresh for both me and the viewer, I began this season by deliberately upending some of my own core assumptions about what to expect. Consequently, this time, alongside some of the more familiar Black Mirror tropes we’ve also got a few new elements, including some I’ve previously sworn blind the show would never do, to stretch the parameters of what ‘a Black Mirror episode’ even is.”
Creator Brooker is credited for writing season six. Ms Marvel Bisha K. Ali has joined as an executive producer alongside Brooker and long-time producing partners Annabel Jones and Jessica Rhoades.
