“Mirror, Mirror, On The wall. Which Is The Scariest Of Them All?” Black Mirror Is Back And Better Than Ever.

Black Mirror Season 6 releases June 15th on Netflix

The highly anticipated and mind-wrenching series Black Mirror just unleashed its Season 6 trailer on Netflix with a serious nod to the complex and newly charted waters of our high-tech multiverse. The new series circles back to its definitional roots of a black mirror; a reference to the effect of a television or computer screen that when switched off gives a dark reflection to the onlookers.

Some Big Names In This Season’s Cast

The new season features big-name actors including Salma Hayek Pinault (Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, Frida), Josh Hartnett (Lucky Number Sleven, Black Hawk Down), Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Superbad), and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Westworld), alongside new and familiar faces: Zazie Beetz (Van on FX’s Atlanta), Anjana Vasan (We are Lady Parts), Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek), Auden Thornton(This Is Us), Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian), Clara Rugaard (The Rising), Daniel Portman (Games of Thrones), Danny Ramirez (Top Gun: Maverick), Himesh Patel (Don’t Look Up), John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Kate Mara (Call Jane), Monica Dolan (Eye in the Sky), Myha’la Herrold (Modern Love), Paapa Essiedu (Gangs of London), Rob Delaney (DeadPool 2), Rory Culkin (Scream 4), and Samuel Blenkin (Peaky Blinders).

Strong casting has always been the foundation for Black Mirror making it a unique platform for mixing new and upcoming actors with A-list actors and singers in interesting storylines that diverge from traditional roles that widely recognized actors might have previously played in movies and shows. 

Writer Charlie Brooker Is Back With His Best Yet

Writer and creator Charlie Brooker states this season will “stretch the parameters of what a Black Mirror episode’ even is,” remaining “Black Mirror through-and-through but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before.” Alongside Charlie Brooker will be executive producers Jessica Rhoades, Annabel Jones, and Bisha K. Ali.

Season 6 is the first season to be produced and released since Brooker and his creative partner Annabel Jones left their production company House of Tomorrow. Brooker and Jones created a new production company, Broke and Bones that Netflix invested in through a mega deal worth up to $100 million.

Themes Of Season 6

In a previous interview creator Charlie Booker said that he had grown “a bit bored” with where Black Mirror was at the time. Booker stated, “There are so many dystopian shows out there that are a bit Black Mirror-y, none of which I will watch because I get crushing professional jealousy and I’ll get annoyed,” he said, name-dropping Westworld

“I didn’t want to be just hitting the same premises over and over again. Like, ‘What if this app ruined your life?’ Or, ‘Oh look! It turns out you’re in virtual reality.’ So there was a slight reset.”

Season 6 will feature five different and unique storylines. The Netflix trailer gives fans a brief glimpse of this season’s episodes, including one called “Joan Is Awful” about an average woman (Annie Murphy) realizing that a major streaming platform has launched a Truman Show-esque series about her life, in which she is played by Selma Hayek Pinault in the series.

Black Mirror has won 6 Primetime Emmy Awards with a total of 27 wins globally across multiple film and tv award shows in addition to receiving 109 nominations in total to date. 

Where Can You Watch?

Catch the new trailer on Netflix and tune in on June 15th for the exhilarating and talked-about season 6 that is sure to leave audiences self-reflecting in many more ways than just staring into the dark screens of their televisions.
