The trailer offers a glimpse into some of the upcoming episodes, including one titled “Joan Is Awful,” where an ordinary woman (Annie Murphy) discovers that a global streaming platform, a parody of Netflix called Streamberry, has launched a prestigious drama based on her life, with Salma Hayek Pinault portraying her character.
Charlie Brooker, the creator and co-showrunner of “Black Mirror,” hinted on the Netflix fan site Tudum that he managed to surprise even himself with the upcoming season. Brooker expressed his belief that “Black Mirror” should showcase stories that are completely distinct from one another to keep audiences, including himself, constantly surprised. He emphasized the importance of the series being undefinable and having the ability to reinvent itself.
“Black Mirror” initially premiered in December 2011 on Channel 4 in the U.K. and was acquired by Netflix ahead of its third season in 2016. After the release of its 2018 interactive feature film “Bandersnatch,” the fifth season arrived in June 2019. During its active period, the series received 14 Emmy nominations and secured eight wins, including outstanding TV movie for “San Junipero,” “USS Callister,” and “Bandersnatch” in 2017, 2018, and 2019, respectively.
Alongside his role in creating and writing the sixth season, Charlie Brooker serves as an executive producer, sharing this responsibility with Jessica Rhoades, Annabel Jones, and Bisha K. Ali.
