Watch The Trailer For Season 5 Of 'Black Mirror'

Three new stories which are as dark as we've come to expect.

Save the date! On June 5, Netflix will be uploading the long-awaited fifth season of Black Mirror, which was delayed as a result of the lengthy production process for special interactive episode Bandersnatch. Fans of the universe created by Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones will be excited to discover three new stories in which technology once again brings out the worst in people.

As usual, the showrunners have hired an excellent cast, featuring 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.

The trailer shows pop star Miley Cyrus in an extremely meta role: she plays a performer adored by thousands of fans, who is transformed in order to achieve a higher level of glory. The end of the trailer contains a nod to the video game Street Fighter which will please nerds, Black Mirror's main target audience.

So we can expect ever weirder social networks and apps, freak-outs, and twists sure to keep us glued to our screens.
