Black Mirror Returns in Trailer for 6th Season

Around the start of the pandemic, Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker had put a hold on the series because the real world started to look pretty bleak, but with the world seemingly back on its feet again, it seems that Brooker is now ready to put everything back to balance.

Just in, we have a new trailer for the sixth season of Black Mirror, and it’s loaded with stars including Aaron Paul and Zazie Beetz. Check this out:

Though at this point, fans can already say what they expect from a Black Mirror episode, Brooker has said that they are going to be shaking up the season, even breaking a few rules that had been established in the earlier run of Black Mirror.

He says (via Variety):

“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?… It should be a series that can’t be easily defined, and can keep reinventing itself.

“So 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.”

We don’t know exactly how Brooker and team will shake up the formula, but seeing that he does have a silly side with specials like Death to 2020 and Cunk on Earth. Maybe Season 6 will be lighter? But for the sake of the brand, I think Black Mirror should keep to some core elements.

Black Mirror returns to Netflix this June.
