The new season of “Black Mirror” boasts a laundry list of top acting talent, including Salma Hayek Pinault, Aaron Paul, and Kate Mara. Fans can expect the same level of dysfunction, darkness, and dystopia that they’ve come to know and love from the show. The teaser for the season reveals that Season 6 is even more violent than past shows, with higher production value and cinematic scope. This season’s roster of directors is also top-notch, with a cast of actors so talented that they “frankly have no right to exist.”
Creator Charlie Brooker has upended some of his own core assumptions about what to expect from “Black Mirror” Season 6. While the show’s episodes have always been standalone instalments, Brooker hints that this season follows a new model. The logline notes that this season is the most unpredictable, unclassifiable, and unexpected yet. Brooker says that the stories are all “still tonally ‘Black Mirror’ through-and-through” but they have some “crazy swings and more variety” than ever before.
“Black Mirror” began life on U.K. broadcaster Channel 4 in 2011, and aired for two seasons before Netflix swooped in for rights. The format was rendered a global sensation on the streamer, with big-budget, celebrity-laden episodes taking the dark heart of the show to dizzying heights and picking up a slew of awards in the process. Season 6 is the first “Black Mirror” season to be produced by Brooker and Jones’ new production company Broke & Bones. The format was licensed to Netflix by rights holders Banijay Rights. Fans can’t wait to see what Brooker and his team have in store for them in the upcoming season of “Black Mirror.”
