According to Deadline the sixth season of Black Mirror has wrapped filming. The sci-fi/horror blended anthology series exploring a twisted, high-tech multiverse where humanity's greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide was acquired by Netflix after its second season, finding a home with the streaming giant.
After season five, only consisting of three episodes (a trend the show broke away from under Netflix), was released back in 2019 to a lukewarm reception, fans of the unsettling show have been eagerly waiting for what comes next. The sixth season was only recently announced in May of 2022, so many are surprised to learn that filming has already wrapped. With how synonymous Black Mirror has become with the unrelenting progression of modern technology, we wonder where they may take us from here. One thing we do know for certain is the cast, and what a great cast it is! Here are just some actors confirmed for season 6 of Black Mirror:
Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad)
Josh Harnett (The Fear Index)
Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, Joker)
Kate Mara (House of Cards)
Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You)
Clara Rugaard (I Am Mother)
Auden Thornton (Beauty Mark)
Danny Ramirez (Top Gun: Maverick)
The publication states "This casting specifically spans three episodes, more actors will join up for further episodes of the series". Whether that means some of these actors will appear across multiple episodes remains to be seen.
In an interview regarding her upcoming film Bullet Train, Zazie Beets discusses having completed production on Season 6 saying "I wouldn't say my character is having a lot of fun, but... I think there's a really great tongue-in-cheek dark element to it, premonition kind of element. The mirror reflecting back on us." Season 6 is also discussed to be even more cinematic in scope than previous seasons and they want to treat each chapter as its own "individual film"
Black Mirror Season 6 does not currently have a release date, but we can likely expect it to be as depressing as the seasons which precede it.
