Netflix Shares 'Black Mirror' Season 6 Trailer, Release Date
The sixth instalment of the series premieres on June 15
Published May 31, 2023If it feels like there's a certain air of ominousness encroaching, it's probably because Netflix has announced the premiere date for Black Mirror Season 6 and shared the first official full-length trailer.
The sixth season of the satirical anthology series will premiere on the streamer on June 15. It consists of five new "ground-breaking" stories, entitled: "Joan Is Awful," "Loch Henry," "Beyond the Sea" and "Mazey Day," as well as the Red Mirror(?)-presented "Demon 79."
The stacked cast of actors bringing these not-so-alternate realities to life includes Aaron Paul, Anjana Vasan, Annie Murphy, Auden Thornton, Ben Barnes, Clara Rugaard, Daniel Portman, Danny Ramirez, David Shields, Himesh Patel, John Hannah, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Monica Dolan, Myha'la Herrold, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, Rory Culkin, Salma Hayek, Samuel Blenkin and Zazie Beetz.
According to creator Charlie Brooker, Season 6 will "stretch the parameters of what 'a Black Mirror episode' even is." He added, "The stories are all still tonally Black Mirror through-and-through — but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before."
If the alarmingly meta trailer — which begins with Murphy finding out that her identity has been stolen for a Netflix (er, Streamberry) show starring Hayek — is any indication, we're in for another wild, existential ride.
