Black Mirror finally returns next week with three new episodes and we appropriately have three new posters to share with you today. We last previewed the upcoming season by checking in with series creator Charlie Brooker, who explained why Season 5 will only consist of three stories.
Earlier this week, the new season's episode titles and trailers were released, pulling back the curtain on what each story will entail. In case you missed it, we have included a recap of each episode below.
"Smithereens" follows follows a cab driver with an agenda who becomes the center of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control. Starring is Andrew Scott (Spectre, Sherlock), Damson Idris (The Twilight Zone, Snowfall), and Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3, That ‘70s Show).
Next, "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too" stars Miley Cyrus as a popstar who a lonely teenager longs to connect with, but the performer’s life isn’t quite as perfect as it appears. Also starring in the episode is Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys, Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Madison Davenport (The Possession).
Last but not least is "Striking Vipers," a story about estranged college friends who reconnect later in life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever. The episode stars Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Nicole Beharie (Shame, Sleepy Hollow), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Oldboy), and Ludi Lin (Power Rangers, Aquaman).
The three-episode fifth season of Black Mirror hits Netflix on June 5th. As always, follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this series.
