Black Cake Season 1 Episode 6 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Black Cake Season 1 Episode 6

Based on The New York Times-bestselling book by Charmaine Wilkerson, ‘Black Cake’ is a family drama wrapped in a murder mystery. The show boasts a diverse cast of characters and a global setting, promising something similar to Hulu’s Kindred released earlier this year. The story takes place in Jamaica, Rome, Scotland, England and Southern California as the narrative travels halfway through the world through complex timelines.

Marissa Jo Cerar has penned the adaptation and serves as showrunner on the series, which spans decades. Black Cake will aim to stupify viewers with the bold fantastical elements that have got critics excited in the early previews of the show. 

Here is everything you need to know about Black Cake Season 1 Episode 6, including its release date, time, and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Black Cake?

Black Cake is a Hulu offering and will be exclusively available to stream on the platform in the US. Along with Hulu, our readers can also watch the show on Disney+, which has partnered with the network to bring their content to different geographies. We do not currently have any other streaming offers for you. 

Black Cake Season 1 Episode 6 Release Date

Black Cake Season 1 Episode 6 will be released on Wednesday, November 22, 8/7c. Expect the runtime to be roughly 53 minutes, since the show is a drama. The first three episodes were almost an hour long but there is no guarantee of the runtime going forward. 

After the tripleheader with the first three episodes, the show has changed trajectory to a weekly release schedule. The new episodes of Black Cake will be available to stream on Hulu and Disney+ with subtitles.

We have an update here for our readers. While the episodes will be available to watch on Hulu on the 20th, non-US viewers will only be able to watch the new episodes with a two-day lag. Hence, Disney+ will host Episode 5 on 22nd November. 

The plot summary for Episode 6, titled “Ma,” reads: “Benny and Byron are shocked when a stranger shows up unannounced to listen to Eleanor’s final recording.” It is not enough to gauge too much, giving us even more incentive to tune in on time! 

How Many Episodes Will Black Cake Have?

Black Cake Season 1 will have a total of eight episodes. After episode 6, we will be left with two more episodes. We do not expect any scheduling changes from Hulu for the next month. But if there are any, we will be sure to update our readers in this series of preview articles. 

What happened in Episode 5?

In Black Cake’s Episode 5, Mabel, a successful cookbook author, faces criticism for cultural appropriation, causing a career setback and personal distress. A potential TV show offer brings hope until a shocking discovery: she’s adopted, a secret unbeknownst to her and Eleanor until she saw a cooking video online after learning she had cancer. 

Meanwhile, Benny and Byron, hurt by Eleanor’s secrets, struggle with feelings of betrayal. Mabel confronts her adoptive parents, leading to a rift and her desire for independence. Benny ends her toxic relationship, seeking to break things off with Steve.

When Byron intervenes, a heated fight ensues, leaving Steve overpowered and drawing attention from onlookers and the police. The episode ends in chaos and approaching sirens, leaving relationships strained and characters grappling with painful revelations.
