Ever since Black Mirror came into our consciousness some five seasons ago, we've never quite been the same. The dark, satirical anthology series from Netflix has given us credence to ask those deep and mind-altering questions that have truly played with our psyche – and shudder at the all-too-real dystopic realities each episode presents to us.
After an unexpectedly long gap between seasons (a time where the world felt more and more like a Black Mirror episode itself, thanks to pandemics, global protests and civil wars), Netflix has finally bestowed us with a trailer, and knowledge of the when to expect the sixth season.
What can we expect from season six?
The show's longstanding creator, Charlie Booker, says the show will be 'reinventing itself' this season, in an effort to keep the episodes interesting not only for the audience but for the creatives behind the anthology too. We know that this season will be longer than the last, which was comprised of only three short instalments.
We're also expecting a much bigger production for this season, with bigger budgets and names attached to the project.
What do we know about the new casting of Black Mirror?
The burgeoning success of the show has seen a more recent seasons dotted with notable guest actors, like Andrew Scott, Miley Cyrus and Topher Grace. This season is shaping up to be no different, with Netflix confirming that season six will feature a host of notable guest actors, including Aaron Paul, Michael Cera, Rory Culkin and Salma Hayek Pinault.
When will season six be released on Netflix?
All five episodes of the sixth season of Black Mirror will be available to stream via Netflix from Tuesday 15 June 2023.
