‘Black Mirror’ 3-Episode, Season 5 Premieres June 5: Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus and More [TRAILER]

Only one day after Netflix and Charlie Brooker teased its return, Black Mirror is officially back for a fifth round beginning June 5th – and now the streaming service is gving us an official trailer to get viewers back in the game. Teasing the season with the ominous line, “the future we should have seen coming,” the upcoming season will stray from past season’s structures: instead of six stand-alone episodes, this season will consist of only three. As of this writing, the runtimes for each episode and their titles have yet to be revealed.

Black Mirror season 5 stars Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus (she wasn’t kidding!), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport, and Ludi Lin – all of whom can be seen in the trailer below. Under flashes of words “love,” ‘privacy,” “connection,” “sex,” “family,” “work,” and “afterlife,” the trailer highlights a season whose themes will include technology’s (usually negative) impact on marriage, self-worth, mental health, and social media.

Three new stories about the future we should have seen coming. Black Mirror returns June 5th.
