The teaser doesn’t provide much information about the plot or characters, but it contains a variety of cryptic images and flashing scenarios that hint at a darker and more twisted exploration in which fans can expect the same thrill and intrigue that they have come to love and anticipate from the previous five seasons.

Even though the exact plotlines haven’t been released to stop early spoilers, the creator Charlie Brooker has given some insight into the season, as mentioned in the report by Netflix Tudum that he even surprised himself with the unexpected baked into the dark, satirical anthology, quote:
“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,” the writer, creator, and executive producer said. Right now, we are confident that in this season every episode will be unexpected and different from others, which is the exact point of Black Mirror in the first place, so it’s fair to say that we should expect nothing less!
“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,” he says. “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.”
The cast members of this season include Aaron Paul, Anjana Vasan, Annie Murphy, Auden Thornton, Ben Barnes, Clara Rugaard, Daniel Portman, Danny Ramirez, David Shields, Himesh Patel, John Hannah, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Monica Dolan, Myha’la Herrold, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, Rory Culkin, Salma Hayek Pinault, Samuel Blenkin and Zazie Beetz. The series is written and created by Charlie Brooker, counts Brooker, Jessica Rhoades, Annabel Jones, and Bisha K. Ali among its executive producers and comes from Brooker and Jones’ production company Broke & Bones.
In conclusion, if you want to start streaming this popular series soon, then add it to your bucket list as soon as possible. It is exclusively available on Netflix. All interested viewers can also enable notifications with a range of membership options on the streaming platform. The video quality and quantity of screens you can use to stream Netflix simultaneously depend on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month at no additional cost with any of their services.
