According to Variety, Netflix is currently developing a brand new installment to its acclaimed sci-fi anthology drama Black Mirror, nearly three years since the latest season debuted. Further details about its plot and cast are still being kept under wraps, but casting has reportedly started for the project.
The outlet notes that Black Mirror Season 6 would be consisting of more than three episodes, described as “more cinematic in scope.” Each episode is being developed as a stand-alone film. The new installment will be produced by Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones through their Broke & Bones banner.
Created by Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into “our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia,” reads the synopsis. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflection.”
The anthology series has already featured a number of famous stars through its current five-season run. This includes Daniel Kaluuya, Hayley Atwell, Jon Hamm, Bryce Dallas Howard, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis, Sarah Snook, Benedict Wong, Jesse Plemons, Andrea Riseborough, Joe Cole, Letitia Wright, Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Scott, and Miley Cyrus.
Black Mirror has also been recognized by award-giving bodies. It won 8 Emmy Awards including three for Outstanding Television Movie for the “San Junipero” and “USS Callister” episodes as well as the Bandersnatch interactive film.
