Black Mirror season 6 trailer

In true Netflix fashion, we got a trailer for Black Mirror season 6 only weeks before it came out. The clip shows off the new cast and gives us a flavor of this season’s tone (to the surprise of absolutely no one, it looks quite gloomy).

You can check out the trailer above, which gives hints towards the meta nature of the new episodes, the increasing tension, and of course, plenty of unfamiliar tech. We also have a little prod at society’s obsession with true crime, and an surprise Salma Hayek.

Since Black Mirror is also going to space this season, we’re also treated to plenty of glimpses of Aaron Paul’s storyline, one which we’re especially excited for.
