First of all, when I tell you there's been a significant amount of time typing in "Black Mirror" and "Charlie Brooker" then clicking on the news tab in Google.. for yeaaaaars (like 4 or whatever). The owners of Black Mirror still might be Banijay Group, who purchased the rights in 2020. They were first held by Endemol Shine Group, the former production company that Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones left. Since then Netflix has invested in their new venture, Broke and Bones. So as it stands now, Brooker and Jones have to have some exclusive rights to still work on the latest season.
It's funny because as the world was falling apart and Brooker took a break from making Black Mirror episodes he pumped out two comedy specials and two cartoon animations that were interactive like Bandersnatch on Netflix.

Salma Hayek and Annie Murphy are currently in talks, but nothing is confirmed yet. But you know I'll be keeping my eye on that.
What will the episodes be like?
When you go down the trail of seasons, it all begins with technology taking over and how we adapt to it as a society. Then we go through the process of us humans now living our lives as normal while technology does its part within its dystopian ideals of the real world. Through the grapevine, these new episodes will be more cinematic-like each movie will be its own short film.
Film Sighting in Scotland
The Inveraray's Main Street in Inverary, Scotland has been filming during the 1st week of September. According to the writer, Vidushi Tiwari, from STV News, there is a town that has transformed into 'a 90s-themed set. Even though there hasn't been someone directly saying, "YA IT'S FOR BLACK MIRROR" it's pretty well known that they are filming for a Netflix show.
"I just came off shooting that actually in June", said actress Zazie Beetz, who gives a bit of an update on Season 6. Zazie goes on to say, "The Creator, shows a really great tongue and cheek [...] premonition kinda element [...] the mirror reflecting back on us [...] I just find it all interesting."
SO DO I ZAZIE. so-do-eye.
So after all of this, I refuse to have my bubble burst. So I'm here to say YES. Black Mirror Season 6 filming has ended for some whereas it's just beginning for others.
And I can't fucking wait.
There's no time frame on when the episodes will be release, but trust and believe I'm going to find out.
We've been waiting long enough.
