"The Circle" is back for a sixth season, with a brand new twist, and a brand new cast.

The Netflix game show, hosted by comedian Michelle Buteau, introduces contestants only able to speak through the "social media" platform of the game, called "The Circle."

They can choose to play as themselves, or as an alternate persona (also known as a catfish). At stake is a $100,000 prize.

Normally, those contestants are all human, but this season promises a very modern twist: One of them is an AI-powered profile named Max.

Max is designed to be the most popular player, having studied other seasons of the game. Will a computer deceive the human mind? Or will the contestants be able to suss out who — and what — is being deceitful?

Robots and all, here is who is competing on Season 6 of The Circle.
