With the production of the sixth season of Black Mirror currently underway, Deadline Hollywood reported that Myha’la Herrold has joined the ever-evolving sci-fi dystopian series cast.
It is now officially confirmed that Myha’la Herrold (Industry, Bodies Bodies Bodies) have been cast in the series season 6 alongside formerly announced cast members including Salma Hayek, Annie Murphy, Rory Culkin, Zazie Beetz, Josh Hartnett, Aaron Paul, Kate Mara, Paapa Essiedu, Danny Ramirez, Clara Rugaard, Auden Thornton and Anjana Vasan
In an interview with Deadline Hollywood during the premiere of her action flick “Bullet Train,” Zazie Beetz had a rather explicit update on filming for the new season of Black Mirror. “I just came off of shooting that, actually. I just shot that in June,” the actress revealed. In retort to being questioned if the filming experience was a fun one, she summed up, “I wouldn’t say my character is having a lot of fun, but… I think there’s a really great tongue-in-cheek dark element to it, premonition kind of element. The mirror reflecting back on us.”

Aside from the star-studded cast members, more can we expect in the upcoming season 6 of Black Mirror?
Back in 2020, in one of his interviews with Radio Times, he wasn’t certain during the time on “what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart”. The pandemic did get in the way because right after season 5, the show went on a three-year break but now it looks like the perfect time to get back to work.
Although there isn’t detailed information as the showrunner Charlie Brooker likes to keep things low-key. He actually gave out a teensy-weensy hint in that interview on what fans can expect from the new season of Black Mirror. “I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh,” he stated.
Variety also confirmed that fans can anticipate a bigger number of episodes in “Black Mirror” season 6 compared to the fifth season which came out three years ago and the typical element about the new batch of episodes to be “even more cinematic in scope, with each instalment being treated as an individual film.”
The upcoming sixth season led by showrunner/writer Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones is a speculative fiction anthology series that “taps into everyone’s unease with the modern world,” as described to the logline. Each independent episode “explores themes of contemporary techno-paranoia, leading to an unsettling conclusion.”
