Variety has learned that the next season of “Black Mirror” will have a new cast. Netflix’s hit anthology series is preparing to return after a long break. Season 6 will have a star-studded group. People now think that the show is being made.

Variety say that Zazie Beetz, Paapa Essiedu, Josh Hartnett, Aaron Paul, Kate Mara, Danny Ramirez, Clara Rugaard, Auden Thornton, and Anjana Vasan are the new people who will be on the show. This hiring is only for three episodes, but more actors are expected to join the show for future episodes.

About Black Mirror

The British variety TV show Black Mirror was made by Charlie Brooker. Each show has many different types of stories, but most of them are set in near-future dystopias with sci-fi technology.

This is a type of fiction called speculative fiction. The show is based on The Twilight Zone and uses technology to talk about social problems in the present day.

Brooker writes most episodes, but executive director Annabel Jones is also very involved. In addition to the interactive film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018), are 22 episodes spread across five series and one special.

We don’t know exactly (though we do know some character names), but we can have fun guessing based on the first-look preview and short episode summaries.

Aaron Paul

Who does Paul play in the story?

We don’t know much about Paul’s character yet, but we do know that he’ll be in Beyond the Sea. He might be one of the “two men on a dangerous high-tech mission” in an alternate 1969 who must deal with the aftermath of an unimaginable tragedy.

From the video, it looks like he will be an American astronaut who finds something terrifying.

Aaron Paul

Where have we seen Aaron Paul?

Paul is no stranger to the world of Black Mirror. In season 4, the episode USS Callister, he voiced a character named Gamer691. Paul is probably best known for playing Jesse Pinkman in the TV show Breaking Bad.

He played the same character in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie and Better Call Saul. He has also been in the shows Truth Be Told, Westworld, and The Path on Apple TV+.

Anjana Vasan as Nida

Who is Nida?

In the teaser, we see a lot of Nida, and we can tell that she works in a shoe area and is angry about something. We see her quietly watching from the locker room and then violently smashing a coworker’s head into a glass cabinet.

She will be in the Demon 79 episode, which takes place in 1979 in northern England. Vasan will play a “meek sales assistant” who is told she must do terrible things to stop bad things from happening.

Anjana Vasan as Nida

Where have we seen Anjana Vasan before?

The actor who won the Laurence Olivier Award is best known for her roles in We Are Lady Parts on Channel 4 and Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire, which she just did on stage. She has also been in Mogul Mowgli, directed by Riz Ahmed, Killing Eve, Fresh Meat, and Hang Ups.

Annie Murphy plays Joan

Who is Joan?

From the look of the teaser trailer, Murphy’s character seems to be some high-flying CEO who is a little bit on edge. She gets an “I miss you” text message, which seems to send her into a downward slide. Later, she crashes a wedding dressed as a cheerleader.

Murphy will play an “average woman” in the Joan Is Awful episode. This woman discovers that a global streaming platform has made a high-end TV story based on her life. Oh, and Salma Hayek Pinault is playing her in the movie.

Annie Murphy plays Joan

Where have we seen Annie Murphy before?

Murphy may be best known for her part as Alexis Rose on Schitt’s Creek, but she was also the lead in Kevin Can F**k Himself. She also played roles in the movies Murderville and Russian Doll.

Clara Rugaard as Mazey

Who is Mazey?

People have called Mazey a “troubled starlet” because she has to deal with the cameras and a hit-and-run. In the teaser, her windshield wiper makes the same creepy smiley face on the window that we see in Zazie Beetz’s camera lens and on a watch face later in the movie.

Clara Rugaard as Mazey

Where have we seen Clara Rugaard before?

The Danish singer and actress led the group Sky’s The Rising most recently, but she has also been in Teen Spirit, Press Play, and Still Star-Crossed.

Josh Hartnett as David

Who is David?

He seems to be the partner of Auden Thornton’s character, but we’ll have to wait and see what their expectedly scary Black Mirror turn will be. Harnett will also be in the same show as Paul.

He will probably play one of the men on this “dangerous high-tech mission” that both Paul and Harnett seem to be on.

Josh Hartnett as David black-mirror-season-6-

Where have we seen Josh Hartnett before?

Hartnett was last seen on TV in Sky’s The Fear Index, and he will soon be in the movie Oppenheimer, which has many big names. He is best known for his leading parts in Pearl Harbour, Black Hawk Down, 40 Days and 40 Nights, and O.

Auden Thornton

What is the role Thornton plays?

Again, it’s hard to tell where Thornton’s character fits in, but we know that if it’s Black Mirror, his “happy” life in the trailer could easily go bad. In the Beyond the Sea episode, Thornton will be in it with Hartnett and Paul.

Auden Thornton

Where have we seen Auden Thornton before?

Thornton has been the main character in This Is Us and Thirtysomething(else). He has also been a guest star on Elementary, Bull, The Good Wife, Royal Pains, and True Story.

Kate Mara

Who is the person Mara plays?

The figure played by Mara seems to be living alone in a cabin in the woods. Based on what she was wearing, we thought her character might be in a story set in the past. Sure enough, she’ll be in the Beyond the Sea episode 1969.


Where have we seen Kate Mara  before?

Mara was most recently seen on TV in the miniseries A Teacher, but she is best known for her parts in House of Cards, American Horror Story: Murder House, 24, Pose, and Call Jane.

Myha’la Herrold plays Pia

Who is Pia?

In the trailer, Herrold’s character tells Blenkin’s character that she loves her surroundings, which seem to be an empty piece of land. This is pretty funny.

We know Herrold will be in the Loch Henry episode, probably as part of the young documentary-making couple drawn to a juicy local story instead.

Myha'la Herrold plays Pia black-mirror-season-6

Where have we seen Myha’la Herrold before?

Herrold plays Harper Stern on the hit BBC show Industry, but he has also been in the movie Bodies Bodies Bodies.

Samuel Blenkin as Davis

Who is Samuel Blenkin?

In the teaser, Blenkin’s character seems to be Herrold’s shy friend, but it’s more likely that Blenkin is Herrold’s partner and that the two of them are the young couple who “find themselves drawn to a juicy local story about shocking events from the past.”

Samuel Blenkin as Davisjpg

Where have we seen Samuel Blenkin before?

If you watch Atlanta, you’ve probably seen Blenkin as Wiley in the season 3 episode set in Amsterdam. In that episode, he did a weird but great job. Blenkin has also been in The Witcher: Blood Origin, The Sandman, Misbehaviour, and episodes of Grantchester, Doctors, and Peaky Blinders.

Paapa Essiedu

What is the role Essiedu plays?

Essiedu’s character is hard to figure out. Besides that, he’s wearing a great 1960s outfit and is charming and friendly, but could he have a dark side? We do know he will be in the Demon 79 episode, so could he be the one who makes Vasan’s character do bad things? Quite likely.

Paapa Essiedu

Where have we seen Paapa Essiedu before?

Recently, Essiedu has played several great parts, including the lead in The Lazarus Project and the second season of The Capture. He has also been in Gangs of London, I May Destroy You, Black Earth Rising, and Kiri.

Salma Hayek Pinault as herself

What is the role Hayek Pinault plays?

The threatening way she asks, “Oh, do you?” in the teaser video makes us think this character will be a bad guy, but we’ll have to wait and see. We know that Hayek Pinault is playing herself in Joan Is Awful, a TV show based on Murphy’s life, where she plays Murphy’s character.


Where have we seen Salma Hayek Pinault before?

The actress has won many awards and has been in many movies and TV shows, from “Ugly Betty” to “Frida.” She recently voiced Kitty Softpaws in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish and appeared in Marvel’s Eternals: House of Gucci. It also looks like she won’t be the only actor to play themselves since she’s in the shot above with Ben Barnes of Shadow and Bone.

Zazie Beetz

What is the role Beetz plays?

Beetz’s character is in the past because she is using dial-up internet. Later, she may take a picture of something bad with her wide-lens camera. She plays the lead role in the Mazey Day episode where “a troubled starlet deals with the aftermath of a hit-and-run while being followed by invasive paparazzi.”

Beetz had said before about her part, “I wouldn’t say that my character is having a lot of fun. But there’s a great dark, tongue-in-cheek part, like foreboding. The mirror that shows us ourselves.”


Where have we seen Zazie Beetz before?

Beetz is probably best known for playing Van in all four seasons of Atlanta. She also played Sophie in Joker with Joaquin Phoenix, a part she will play again in the film’s upcoming sequel. She has also been in movies like Bullet Train, The Harder They Fall, and Deadpool 2.
