Netflix has announced the official episode names and plot summaries for Season 6 of its dystopian science fiction series Black Mirror. Premiering in June, the new season of the series will consist of five episodes: Joan Is Awful, Loch Henry, Beyond the Sea, Mazey Day, and Demon 79. Netflix has released synopses and cast lists for all of its shows.

In Joan Is Awful, a regular gal is taken aback when she learns that Hollywood hotshot Salma Hayek is playing her in a prestige TV drama adaptation available on a global streaming platform. Ally Pankiw is the director, while Charley Brooker has penned the screenplay. Annie Murphy, Salma Hayek Pinault, Michael Cera, Himesh Patel, Rob Delaney, and Ben Barnes are the stars featured in the episode.

A young couple travels to Loch Henry to begin filming a gentle nature documentary, but they soon become engrossed in a juicy local narrative about terrible incidents from the town's past. Filmmaker Sam Miller is at the helm, whereas Charley wrote this too. Matthew Blenkin, Myhala Herrold, Daniel Portman, John Hannah, and Monica Dolan star in the episode.

In Beyond the Sea, two men on a dangerous high-tech mission in an alternate 1969 have to come to terms with the aftermath of an unthinkable event. John Crowley is the director, and Brooker wrote the episode starring Rory Culkin, Auden Thornton, Kate Mara, Aaron Paul, and Josh Hartnett.

In Mazey Day, while unwelcome paparazzi follow her, a troubled actress must deal with the consequences of a hit-and-run. Uta Briesewitz is the director, while Charley wrote the episode featuring Danny Ramirez, Clara Rugaard, and Zazie Beetz.

In Demon 79, a timid sales clerk in 1979 Northern England is informed she must conduct awful actions to avert catastrophe. Toby Haynes is the director; Charley Brooker and Bisha K. Ali wrote the episode. David Shields, Katherine Rose Morley, Anjana Vasan, and Paapa Essiedu star in this episode.

Charlie Brooker wrote all five of the Black Mirror Season 6 episodes, including Demon 79 by Bisha K. Ali. In addition to his long-time production collaborators, Annabel Jones and Jessica Rhoades, Brooker also acts as an executive producer on the show. This season is the first for Brooker and Jones' new company, Broke & Bones, to produce their Black Mirror series.
