What is the Black Mirror season 6 plot?
Charlie Brooker has promised that Black Mirror season 6 will continue to defy expectations and categorisation as the show moves into new genres and styles.
"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," Brooker told Tudum.
"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."
