It’s been four years since the last season of Black Mirror premiered on Netflix, and another chapter is finally on the way! The new teaser trailer for the show’s sixth season is one star-studded affair and it confirms that the anthology series will be back this June.

The short teaser trailer keeps all the major plot points under wraps, but it still managed to get us excited for Season 6 by giving us a first glimpse at the cast, which includes the likes of Aaron Paul, Annie Murphy, Ben Barnes, Himesh Patel, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Rob Delaney, Rory Culkin, Salma Hayek Pinault, and Zazie Beetz.

Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker added some more fuel to the fire by sharing some exciting details with Netflix and described the upcoming season as the most unpredictable one yet.

“I began this season by deliberately upending some of my own core assumptions about what to expect… The stories are all still tonally Black Mirror through-and-through — but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before,” said Brooker in a statement.

Black Mirror initially premiered on Channel 4 in 2011 before moving to Netflix with its third season. The show’s depiction of technology’s impact on society drew comparisons to The Twilight Zone, and its episodes San Junipero, USS Callister, and the interactive movie Bandersnatch all won the Emmy for an outstanding television movie.
