Ever since Black Mirror came into our consciousness some five seasons ago, we've never quite been the same. The show has given us credence to ask those deep and mind altering questions that have truly played with our psyche. Now, in what feels like perfect timing in this uncertain, mind altering metaverse that is 2022, Netflix has revealed the show is back for season six. So naturally we'd love to dig a little deeper here.

What do we know about the new casting of Black Mirror?

It's been nearly three years since the show last premiered on Netflix. But there have been considerable murmurs going on for a while about it's return and the pending casting of new characters. While most of the details are being kept scarce, Variety has revealed that season 6 will have more episodes than Season 5, which comprised of just three instalments. It's not yet clear if the same cast of Andrew Scott, Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace and Miley Cyrus will make a return. But given the reception from the last season it wouldn't be unheard of.

When will the season 6 of Black Mirror be filmed?

Sources have yet to reveal when the season will be filmed, but what they have revealed is that the latest season appears to be even more cinematic in production, with each instalment being treated less episodic and more like a film. This follows suit of the recent seasons where each episode usually extends past 60 minutes and had higher production costs.

What about the production of season 6?

As previously mentioned, the production value is set to be a lot higher this time around with more of a cinematic scope. The newest season is also  the first to come out since creator Charlie Brooker and his creative partner Annabel Jones started their new production banner Broke and Bones, which Netflix quickly invested in the company through a new 100 million mega deal.

Overall, we can expect this to be presenting as much more movie like with more attention paid to production. We'll be sure to keep you updated with more details as they emerge, for now we'll be going back to binge the first five seasons of Black Mirror on Netflix.
