Netflix’s ‘Black Mirror’ Season 6 Trailer Teases the Most ‘Unpredictable’ Series Yet


After a five-year hiatus, Netflix’s mind-bending and twisted anthology series Black Mirror is making its grand return for Season 6 this June. The streaming giant recently dropped the big news and even served up a first-look teaser trailer, which gives us a sneak peek at the bleak nightmarish dystopian future that humanity might be heading towards. The upcoming season of Charlie Brooker’s hit sci-fi anthology TV series is being billed as the “most unpredictable season yet” and will “reinvent itself with each new episode.” If you are familiar with the series, you will know how extreme things can get and with Black Mirror Season 6, Brooker plans to raise the stakes to new heights.

While no release date was shared, the upcoming season will be the first to be produced by Brooker and Jones’ new production company Broke & Bones. The series is penned and created by Charlie Brooker, who also serves as the executive producer alongside Jessica Rhoades, Annabel Jones and Bisha K. Ali. Up until now, Black Mirror episodes have always been detached from each other and have no connection whatsoever, but Brooker teases that Season 6 will refresh the formula and add a new twist.

“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?” said Brooker while talking about the upcoming season in a Netflix TUDUM blog. “It should be a series that can’t be easily defined, and can keep reinventing itself.” As per the official logline “the sixth season of Black Mirror is the most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected yet” and we expect it to be nothing less.

The mind-boggling new season continues to boast an impressive all-star cast, featuring 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 Pinault, Samuel Blenkin and Zazie Beetz.

The debut teaser for the upcoming season is stuffed with dark, gory and dysfunctional things fans have come to expect from the show but with a pinch of more drama and violence thrown in for good measure. Throughout the trailer, we see a haunting smiley face emoji popping up that looks utterly creepy. Series creator Charlie Brooker shared a few tidbits surrounding the upcoming season and what it has in store for fans.

Brooker said, “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. Consequently, this time, alongside some of the more familiar ‘Black Mirror’ tropes we’ve also got a few new elements, including some I’ve previously sworn blind the show would never do, to stretch the parameters of what ‘a Black Mirror episode’ even is.”

Brooker even went on to add that the stories are all “still tonally Black Mirror through-and-through” topped with some “crazy swings and more variety” than ever before. “And bringing it all to life we’ve got an incredible roster of disgustingly skilful, smart directors working with a cast of actors so talented they frankly have no right to exist. I can’t wait for people to binge their way through it all and hope they enjoy it – especially the bits they shouldn’t.”

So get ready to witness the downright wild emotional twinge coupled with existential dread when Black Mirror Season 6 lands on Netflix this June.
