“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.”

Charlie Booker, ‘Black Mirror’ writer, creator, and executive producer revealed during Netflix UK’s “Returning Favourites” Week.

The series is known for its satirical take on modern society, technology and the future. Each episode is a standalone story with a different cast and setting, but all of them are united by their dark, thought-provoking, and often unsettling tone. With Season 6, the show continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with the format.

“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. The stories are all still tonally Black Mirror through-and-through — but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before.” 

Charlie Booker, ‘Black Mirror’ writer, creator, and executive producer revealed during Netflix UK’s “Returning Favourites” Week.

The talent on display is simply mind-boggling, with names like Aaron Paul, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Salma Hayek Pinault, and Zazie Beetz all appearing in various episodes. According to Brooker, the cast is so talented that they “frankly have no right to exist”.

Season 6 of Black Mirror is written and created by Charlie Brooker and counts Brooker, Jessica Rhoades, Annabel Jones, and Bisha K. Ali among its executive producers. It is produced by Brooker and Jones’ production company, Broke & Bones, and is licensed by Banijay Rights.
