American comedian and actor Rob Delaney has joined the cast of Charlie Brooker's 'Black Mirror' ahead of its sixth season.

Netflix is keeping quiet on casting and details about Delaney’s role in the dystopian anthology are scarce.

The 45-year-old rose to prominence through his penchant for tweeting back when Twitter was a bit more fun.

He went on to co-write and star in the Channel 4 comedy-drama 'Catastrophe' alongside Sharon Horgan. He played Rob Norris who, on a business trip to London, gets Horgan's character pregnant. The season ran for 4 seasons and earned Delaney an Emmy nomination.

Delaney moved to London and has since appeared on many British TV panel shows including 'Have I Got News for You', 'Would I Lie to You?' and '8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown'.

Back in May we got word of 'Black Mirror' season six being in development. Since then, we've got some exciting casting announcements. As well as Delaney, 'Breaking Bad' star Aaron Paul and Zazie Beetz were also announced last month.

They join an already stacked cast including Josh Hartnett ('Lucky Number Sleven'), Kate Mara ('Pose'), Danny Ramirez ('Top Gun: Maverick'), Paapa Essiedu ('I May Destroy You'), Clara Rugaard ('The Rising'), Auden Thornton ('This Is Us') and Anjana Vasan ('Killing Eve'). 

It's been three years since the last entry of 'Black Mirror' appeared on our screens. The world has got a hell of a lot more dystopian since then, so we're looking forward to being freaked out by Brooker's inspired ideas again soon.

You can watch all five seasons of 'Black Mirror' on Netflix now.
