The cast for season six of Black Mirror has been revealed.
While little is known around the storylines involved in the upcoming instalment of the anthology series, sources close to the production have said it boasts a stellar cast.
Reports in Variety claim that fans can expect a plethora of new faces, with the likes of Josh Hartnett and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul set to be part of the line up.
Joining them, sources claim, will be Kate Mara (House of Cards), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Danny Ramirez, Paapa Essiedu (Gangs of London), Anjana Vasan, Clara Rugaard, and Auden Thornton, all of whom will star in three episodes of the new season.
It's understood that more cast members will appear in other episodes.
Variety reported last year that a sixth season was in the works, and that it promised to be 'even more cinematic in scope, with each instalment being treated as an individual film'.
Season five of the dystopian, nightmarish show had an equally envious cast, with appearances from Andrew Scott, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace and Miley Cyrus.
The new series will be the first since the show's creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones left their production company House of Tomorrow back in 2020.
The pair later set up a new production company, Broke and Bones, into which Netflix pumped $100 million.
Speaking previously about his role, Brooker told Radio Times in 2020 that he wasn't sure whether he wanted to carry on making the series.
"I've been busy, doing things. I don't know what I can say about what I'm doing and not doing," he explained.
"At the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on one of those.
"I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh."
Black Mirror first aired on Channel 4 back in 2011, opening with one of the most uncomfortable first episodes of any series ever.
If you know, you know.
It remained on UK TV for two seasons, until it was snapped up by Netflix in 2016, with three further series airing on the streaming site.
Production on season six has reportedly already begun, but no release date has yet been announced.
