Today, the streaming service released the first official trailer for the anthology show’s sixth installment, and it looks even wilder than its predecessors. Not only does it feature an all-star cast, but it also confirms that Black Mirror season six will premiere on June 15.

The trailer introduces the five mind-bending stories that are included in Black Mirror season six. “Joan Is Awful” stars Salma Hayek (Frida) as a celebrity who steals the identity of Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek) for a TV show. “Loch Henry” explores the juicy secrets of a small Scottish town.

“Beyond the Sea” features Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as an astronaut who’s seemingly tasked with saving the world. “Mazey Day” focuses on Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) trying to track down Clara Rugaard (The Rising), who portrays a troubled starlet. “Demon 79” follows Anjana Vasan (Spider-Man: Far from Home) as she tries—and fails—to suppress her murderous rage with help from Paapa Essiedu (The Lazarus Project).

Other cameos include Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Danny Ramirez, Auden Thornton and Rory Culkin. The descriptions read, “Five new films. Five new worlds. Five new realities. Five new nightmares. Five new revelations. Five new hallucinations. Five new rabbit holes. Five new mindf***s.”

This isn’t the first time Black Mirror has recruited a star-studded cast. Past seasons of the hit anthology series have featured the likes of Miley Cyrus, Jon Hamm, Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Bryce Dallas Howard and many more.

Let the countdown to June 15 begin.
