Black Mirror is a science fiction anthology series. This British show has gained popularity for its unique themes like a tragedy, psychological thriller, and satire. Charlie Brooker serves as the creator of this series. Black Mirror season 1 launched on Channel 4 on December 4, 2011.
Later on, it got acquired by Netflix in September 2015. The show became a worldwide sensation when it got released on this streaming platform. It has stunned the audience with its refreshing concepts and experimental stories. Each episode is different from the other, but fans can find some relation between the themes.
Black Mirror Season 6 Premiere Date: When will it release on Netflix?
The previous season of Black Mirror released on June 5, 2019, on Netflix. As far as the new season goes, creators haven’t announced any official date yet. Though, after gaining huge success in previous seasons, it would be saddening if the streaming platform doesn’t release another part. If the show does get renewed, then we can expect the Black Mirror Season 6 to launch by the end of 2020 or in 2021. However, we don’t have any official confirmation yet, so let’s stay optimistic and hope for the best.
Black Mirror Season 6 Cast: Who will be in it?
Cast constantly keeps changing in every episode, so no character is permanent in the series. None of the actors from previous seasons have returned in a new episode. However, the show has collaborated with famous actors in various episodes.
Celebrities like pop singer Miley Cyrus, BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ actor Andrew Scott, MCU’s Falcon Anthony Mackie and DC’s ‘Aquaman’ star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II appeared in the series. Other famous casts also include Nicole Beharie, Topher Grace, Ludi Lin, Angourie Rice, Pom Klementieff, Madison Davenport, as well as Damson Idris.
Black Mirror Plot: What is it about?
The plot of the show mostly focuses on the relationship of humans with technology. It shows how the objectivity of a mere machine can be destroyed when humans interact with it. In some of the episodes, the show also revealed some human traits and their social conditions, which are more animalistic than the civilized.
Some of the episodes have also shown us where the humans wanted to control various aspects of their lives. However, not all the episodes are grim and dark. Some of them have lighter tones too. Episodes like ‘Hang the DJ’ and ‘San Junipero’ are best to watch in lighter tones. In ‘Smithereens’, viewers saw a man driven to violence and madness due to phones.
In another episode of ‘Striking Vipers’, viewers saw a family man who struggles daily and gets involved in a fighting game. In the fifth season, Miley Cyrus gave insight to the viewers about the celebrity culture and how we dehumanize them. All they need is a human connection, just like us. If the show is renewed for a sixth season, we can expect it to return with their combination of lighter episodes and darker themes.
