First up is 'Joan Is Awful', which follows an "average woman", played by Annie Murphy, who is "stunned to discover a global streaming platform has launched a prestige TV drama adaptation of her life – in which she is portrayed by Hollywood A-lister Salma Hayek Pinault".
'Loch Henry', starring Myha’la Herrold and Daniel Portman, focuses on "a young couple [who] travel to a sleepy Scottish town to start work on a genteel nature documentary, but find themselves drawn to a juicy local story involving shocking events of the past".
The Aaron Paul and Josh Hartnett-starring 'Beyond the Sea' is set "in an alternative 1969, [where] two men on a perilous high-tech mission wrestle with the consequences of an unimaginable tragedy".
Up next is 'Mazey Day' starring Zazie Beetz, the synopsis revealing: "A troubled starlet is dogged by invasive paparazzi while dealing with the consequences of a hit-and-run incident."
Last but not least, 'Demon 79' (which stars Anjana Vasan and Paapa Essiedu) is set in "Northern England, 1979", where "a meek sales assistant is told she must commit terrible acts to prevent disaster".
Alongside the aforementioned stars, season 6 will also include Ben Barnes, Michael Cera, Kate Mara, Rory Culkin, Auden Thornton, Clara Rugaard, Danny Ramirez, Himesh Patel, John Hannah, Monica Dolan, Rob Delaney and Samuel Blenkin.
Creator Charlie Brooker previously revealed that the new season "reinvents itself with each new episode" and stretches the "parameters of what a Black Mirror episode even is".
"I’ve always felt that Black Mirror should feature stories that are entirely distinct from one another, and keep surprising people — and myself — or else what’s the point? It should be a series that can’t be easily defined, and can keep reinventing itself," he added.
Black Mirror season 6 will air on Netflix in June.
