Washington [US]: A new series of ‘Black Mirror’ Season 6 is returning to Netflix after a long break. According to multiple outlets, Netflix is working on the reverent season of the dystopian anthology series.

Almost three years after Season 5 of the dystopian drama premiered on the streaming service in June 2019, a new anthology series of ‘Black Mirror’ is in preparation and the cast is underway, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The all three hour-long episodes, each will be more cinematic in scope.

The new season is expected to have more episodes than Season 5 but will continue the show’s trend of producing longer and more cinematic stories.

Multiple outlets reported that casting is underway and share on other details over the famously secretive series.

Season 5 consists of only three parts starring Andrew Scott, Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace and Miley Cyrus.

The previous season aired back in 2019. After the COVID 19 pandemic hit, creator Charlie Brooker said in an interview that making more episodes of the series felt wrong during such a real-life global tragedy. “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,” he told U.K.’s Radio Times. “I’m sort of keen to revisit my comic skill set, so I’ve been writing scripts aimed at making myself laugh.”

However, there was also a behind-the-scenes drama when production was stopped.

Since the previous season of Black Mirror, Brooker and Jones have produced two annual end-of-year specials for streamers, ‘Death to 2020’ and ‘Death to 2021’.
