Science-fiction series “Black Mirror” will begin a fifth season of technology-fueled paranoia from June 5, with a cast including pop singer Miley Cyrus, “Avengers” actor Anthony Mackie and “Fleabag” star Andrew Scott.
Return of “Black Mirror” fifth season once again show us development of technology can no longer have pleasant things.
The new season will tell three stories written by Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones.
Bandersnatch”, an interactive special edition of the show that offered viewers the chance to pick from a range of scenarios.
The trailer is careful not to give away any of the new episodes’ trademark twists, but we can speculate a little on their subject matter. In one, called Smithereens, we see a man seemingly driven mad – and probably to violence – by the omnipresence of smartphones. If the stressed-out leading role looks familiar it’s because he’s played by Andrew Scott, the actor who gave us Jim Moriarty in Sherlock and the hot priest in season 2 of Fleabag.
Another episode – titled Striking Vipers – shows Avengers: Endgame star Anthony Mackie as a family man seemingly struggling with his role in the world. Judging by the trailer it has something to do with a beat-em-up style game.
The most intriguing – only titled Episode #5.3 right now – landscapes a complimentary little robot and Miley Cyrus. Of course, expect the real episodes to take these simple starting points and do something soul-destroying unusual with them.
“Black Mirror”, whose stories look at the effects of advanced technology on modern society, debuted in Britain in 2011 with three episodes.
