The sci-fi anthology series examines modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies.
After the release of Black Mirror season 5, the creator Charlie Brooker is buckled up for season 6. There are rumours that Matrix’s Neo aka Keanu Reeves will be joining Black Mirror Season 6. The best part about the Black Mirror series is that each episode is a standalone and usually set in an alternative present or the near future.
Black Mirror is now one of Netflix’s hottest properties in comparison to ‘Orange Is the New Black’ or ‘Stranger Things’ or ‘13 Reasons Why’. Fans are eagerly waiting on what they will get in season 6 of Black Mirror. Till now there hasn’t been an official announcement about Black Mirror Season 6.
All about Black Mirror Season 5
The last season of Black Mirror was a shorter run of three episodes each at an hour long. There is no stop with showrunners Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones pointing to plenty of potential in the series. In an interview, Charlie Brooker suggested Black Mirror was “pretty flexible” in the kind of tone and format it worked. “I don’t think there’s anything to stop us… we could do one-offs, we could do an ongoing story, we could do spin-offs,” he said.
With the Black Mirror series, Charlie Brooker even came up with the science fiction film, Bandersnatch. Netflix released the standalone film on 28 December 2018. A brief tutorial, specific to the device being stream on, explains to the viewer how to make choices. They have ten seconds to make a choice, or it decides on its own.
Neo aka Keanu in Black Mirror Season 6
Keanu recently made his cameo in Netflix rom-com “Always Be My Maybe”. He didn’t casually pop into the show. He flew to San Francisco from the set of “John Wick 3” and then came back into John Wick mode to finish filming his stabby hitman threequel. Keanu Reeves walked into his favorite haunt, the Chateau Marmont, wearing a black leather jacket and a motorcycle helmet.
Keanu always cast in and likes to be cast in sci-fi films like the ‘The Matrix’ trilogy. And after John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, demand for Keanu Reeves’ went soaring high. In the movie, he doesn’t play just anybody. He plays himself.
According to the reports, Black Mirror season 5 cast Yahya Abdul-Mateen has joined The Matrix 4 as the lead role. He will cast opposite Keanu Reeves in the upcoming movie. We expect Wachowski to both pens and direct the upcoming flick and so with the full support of Warner Bros.
Black Mirror season 6 release and Episode
There is no confirmation on the release of Season 6 but can assume that they can be entertaining us in mid-2020. The production also brought the episode order down to three from six in the previous two seasons.
Brooker gave hint on the type of story we will be seeing in season 6 of Black Mirror. “We could do one-offs, we could do an ongoing story, we could do spin-offs,” he said. On the cast, we previously saw a balance between using a mix of up-and-coming British talent and massive stars (Jon Hamm, Miley Cyrus, Andrew Scott). For the upcoming series, Keanu can be a differing cast. So, don’t be surprised if we have to wait until the back half of 2020 for more Black Mirror. It looks like Keanu is coming on Netflix and Black Mirror is the show best suits him as a cast.
