Black Mirror: disrupted realities – the shocking twists of Season 6 (video: Netflix trailer).
Oh joy, another round of sleepless nights and existential dread is just around the corner! That’s right, the much-anticipated Black Mirror Season 6 is set to grace our screens this June 2023 (exact date to be announced), and boy, are we thrilled. It’s only fitting that we once again dive into the dark abyss of Charlie Brooker’s twisted imagination to explore technology’s impact on humanity. Who needs sunshine and rainbows when you have a beautiful medley of dysfunction, darkness, and dystopia?
Brooker, the mastermind behind the hit anthology series, told SFcrowsnest that Season 6 will be the most unpredictable one yet. The man who has singlehandedly made us question the fabric of our reality and the gadgets we rely on has decided that the show needed a bit of a makeover. And let’s be honest, who are we to complain? It’s not like we had anything better to do than ponder the end of civilization as we know it.
In a bold attempt to reinvent the series and keep us on our toes, Brooker has deliberately upended some of his 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.” How exciting – more creative ways to make us all uncomfortable and paranoid!
The star-studded cast for Season 6 includes Aaron Paul, Salma Hayek Pinault, Zazie Beetz, and many more disgustingly talented actors who, according to Brooker, “frankly have no right to exist.” Well, if we’re going down the rabbit hole of technological despair, we might as well do it with the best of the best, right?
A teaser for the season promises even more violence and a higher production value. How lovely – the end of the world has never looked so good! And with the addition of “Ms. Marvel” showrunner Bisha K. Ali as an executive producer, we’re certain that this season will be a cinematic feast for the eyes, just before our souls are crushed under the weight of our technologically dependent lives.
So buckle up, dear viewers, and prepare for another wild ride into the depths of our collective nightmares. Black Mirror S6 is coming, and we can hardly wait to experience the exquisite terror that only Charlie Brooker can deliver.
