Netflix has released the trailers for the three episodes in the upcoming fifth season of its Emmy-winning anthology sci-fi series Black Mirror.
The new season will arrive on Wednesday, June 5 and will only be three episodes with Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie and Damson Idris, Miley Cyrus, Andrew Scott, Topher Grace, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.
Created and written by Charlie Brooker, each episode of Black Mirror employs a different cast of actors to explore themes linked to the collision of mankind with the unforgiving technology they have created.
Netflix describes the anthology series as tapping 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.”
