Black Mirror Season 6: Cast, Teasers, Release Date, and Everything Else to Know

We have a premiere date!

Kat Moon

The long-awaited release of Black Mirror Season 6 is just around the corner. Not only that, we now have the official trailer for Charlie Brooker's anthology series about the horrors of technology. It's been nearly three years since the last season of Black Mirror, and we need the five new episodes to drop ASAP. 

"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," Brooker told Tudum. "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." Brooker also said Black Mirror Season 6 will feature "some crazy swings and more variety than ever before." 

Here's everything we know so far about Black Mirror Season 6 so far.

When does Black Mirror Season 6 come out?

Netflix announced that Black Mirror Season 6 will be released on June 15, 2023. 

Black Mirror Season 6 trailers

The official trailer for Black Mirror Season 6 arrived on May 31, and gives a much closer look at the upcoming stories. "The award winning anthology series returns with five new films," the video reads. "Five new worlds. Five new realities. Five new nightmares." OK, we're listening!

On May 11, Netflix unveiled the second teaser for Season 6, which offers a brief glimpse at all five episodes.

This teaser follows the first one released in April, which gives a look at all the violence we'll see in Season 6, and a look at the cast in action. "You've been wondering," the teaser begins. "You've been waiting." But the video also cautions fans: "You've been warned."
