'Black Mirror' Season 6 Trailer: Watch Salma Hayek Play the 'Netflix' Version of Annie Murphy

Black Mirror

The anthology series returns June 15 for five new installments on Netflix.

Black Mirror officially has a premiere date!

After teasing a summer return, the Netflix anthology series will launch its anticipated sixth season Thursday, June 15, it was announced Wednesday. The official two-minute trailer, as well as the episode titles, loglines and cast members were revealed as part of the announcement.

In the upcoming five-episode season, from creator Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror tells viewers to "expect the unexpected" as the series will be "the most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected yet."

The trailer offers intriguing teases for each of the five installments, opening first with "Joan Is Awful," which revolves around a Netflix copycat called Streamberry that debuts a new TV show about an average woman's (Annie Murphy) life -- and Salma Hayek is the one playing her. She only discovers it when she opens the streaming service and stumbles across the show.


The second episode, "Loch Henry," centers around a couple who get caught up investigating a sleepy Scottish town's skeletons. The next three episodes teased in the trailer are the space-set "Beyond the Sea" with Aaron Paul and Josh Hartnett, the Hollywood paparazzi-centric "Mazey Day" with Zazie Beetz and Danny Ramirez and the murderous "Demon 79."

As the trailer hypes up, the new season will transport viewers into "Five new worlds. Five new realities. Five new nightmares. Five new revelations. Five new hallucinations. Five new rabbit holes. Five new mindf**ks." Sounds about right. 

Of course, the series had to poke fun at the current streaming era at the end of the trailer when someone offscreen asks, "You haven't seen Joan Is Awful?" "No, but it's on my list." Watch the trailer below.
