Black Mirror Season 6 is all about reinventing itself according to show creator Charlie Brooker
Following a three-year hiatus, Netflix revealed on April 26, 2023, that Black Mirror season 6 will begin streaming in June.
To further hype the fans of the satirical, suspense British anthology series, Netflix also released the first chill-bump-inducing teaser trailer that shows a range of stories beginning to unfold, with a cast that includes Salma Hayek, Aaron Paul, Annie Murphy, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera and Rory Culkin, among others.
What to expect from Black Mirror Season 6?
The announcement teases that Black Mirror Season 6 “is the most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected yet” for the series.
Speaking with Netflix’s Tudum vlog, show creator Charlie Brooker elaborated on the season’s concept, saying that even though he always felt “Black Mirror” should feature stories “entirely distinct from one another” and that it should be a series “that can’t easily be defined,” he chose to make some creative decisions for the upcoming episodes that are different than what we’ve seen.
“Partly as a challenge, and partly to keep things fresh for both the viewer and me, I began this season by deliberately upending some of my own core assumptions about what to expect,” Brooker says. “The stories are all still tonally ‘Black Mirror’ through-and-through—but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before.”
“I can’t wait for people to binge their way through it all and hope they enjoy it—especially the bits they shouldn’t,” Brooker ends.
“Black Mirror” has been met with positive reception from critics. After releasing 22 episodes the show has won a total of six Emmy awards, three of which they bagged consecutively for “San Junipero,” “USS Callister” and its 2018 interactive film “Bandersnatch.”
The show’s individual episodes explore a diversity of genres, but most are set in near-future dystopias with sci-fi technology—a type of speculative fiction.
