what's happening with Black Mirror

Netflix Announces ‘Black Mirror’ Season 6

Netflix fans have been eagerly anticipating the return of the popular sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror since the last season aired back in 2019. After a long wait, the streaming giant has finally announced that the show will be returning for its sixth season this June.

The official Twitter account for Black Mirror teased the return with a post that asked fans: “What have we missed?” It’s safe to say that there’s been a lot going on in the world since the last season aired.

The announcement was accompanied by a teaser trailer that promises fans that “You’re due an update” and given the show’s dark and dystopian themes, it hints at the twisted and thought-provoking stories that fans have come to expect from the series.

As always, the show’s creators are keeping the details of the upcoming season tightly under wraps, but we do know that it will feature a star-studded cast including Aaron Paul, Anjana Vasan, Annie Murphy, Salma Hayek Pinault and many more.

Black Mirror has become a cultural phenomenon thanks to its sharp writing, innovative storytelling and its ability to hold a mirror up to society and make us think about the impact of technology on our lives. Each episode tells a standalone story that explores a different aspect of the human condition, often with a dark and unsettling twist.

With the show’s return just around the corner, fans are already speculating about what kind of stories we can expect to see in the upcoming season. Whatever the show has in store for us, we can be sure that it will be both thought-provoking and entertaining, and will continue to push the boundaries of what we expect from television.
