Here’s what you can expect when the hit sci-fi anthology returns.

It’s been nearly four years since new Black Mirror episodes premiered. However, Netflix last month shed some light on the show’s much-anticipated sixth season by unveiling a trailer, as well as information on when audiences can expect the series to return.

Widely regarded as one of the best shows of the past 15 years and credited with revitalising the anthology TV format, the often prophetic sci-fi series will be back on a to-be-announced date sometime in June.

The new season will consist of five standalone episodes and will feature a star-studded guest cast, including Annie Murphy, Aaron Paul, Himesh Patel, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Myha’la Herrold, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, Salma Hayek Pinault and Zazie Beetz among many others.

Following Netflix’s recent announcement regarding Black Mirror’s imminent return, the streamer has gone one step further, releasing titles and plot details for the upcoming episodes. On top of this, we now know the episodes in which each actor will appear.
