Netflix Unveils ‘Black Mirror’ Season 5 Trailer and Cast
Black Mirror will return to Netflix next month for its fifth season, and this time without the choose-your-own-adventure gimmick of its recent film (film? game?) Bandersnatch. Today Netflix unveiled a trailer for the new season (watch it above) and revealed that there will be three new episodes featuring the likes of Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin. Miley Cyrus in Black Mirror?! And it looks like she’s playing a pop star too.
Netflix didn’t provide individual plot synopsis or titles for the three episodes, only this one for the series:
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia leading to an unforgettable – and sometimes unsettling – conclusion. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
Black Mirror returns to Netflix on June 5.
