Black Mirror Sets Netflix Premiere, Reveals More of Season 6 in Trailer

Nov 20, 2023

Black Mirror season six finally has a date.

The long-awaited return of Charlie Brooker's Netflix anthology series is June 15, the series announced along with episode descriptions and the full official trailer on Wednesday.

The season is confirmed to be five episodes, which is two more installments than the last season that released back in summer of 2019.

In the official announcement about the Emmy-winning series’ return, Brooker said he "stretched the parameters" of what to expect from a Black Mirror episode for the forthcoming season. "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? 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," he said, promising "crazy swings and more variety than ever before."

The impressive season six cast includes 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.
