‘Black Mirror’ Season 6 Trailer Reveals Release Date & Stars Salma Hayek Pinault
Salma stars in a “Black Mirror” episode that spoofs a Netlfix-esque global streaming service.
Netflix has released the official trailer for the sixth season of Black Mirror, which reveals that the critically-lauded dystopian series will return on June 15.
The new season features a stacked cast of guest stars, including Salma Hayek Pinault, Aaron Paul, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Rory Culkin, Rob Delaney, and Zazie Beetz.
The new trailer gives fans a first look at upcoming episodes, including one called “Joan Is Awful,” in which an average woman (Annie Murphy) discovers that a Netflix-style global streaming platform called Streamberry has launched a prestige drama based on her life, in which she is played by Hayek Pinault, who in real life is married to billionaire French fashion mogul François-Henri Pinault.
Black Mirror creator and co-showrunner Charlie Brooker told Netflix-owned fan site Tudum that the new season will offer plenty of surprises.
“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?” Brooker said. “It should be a series that can’t be easily defined, and can keep reinventing itself.”
The series first premiered in December 2011 on Channel 4 in the U.K., and was purchased by Netflix ahead of the third season in 2016.
Black Mirror‘s fifth season dropped in June 2019, following the premiere of its 2018 interactive feature film “Bandersnatch.” The series has snared 14 Emmy nominations and won eight Emmys, including outstanding TV movie for the “San Junipero,” “USS Callister” and “Bandersnatch” episodes in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
