Arguably one of Netflix's best series Black Mirror is returning for it's 5th season and this time, with just three stand-alone episodes.
The first trailer for Black Mirror season 5 dropped Wednesday last night, revealing a stellar cast including Miley Cyrus and June 5 as it's release date.
Described by Netflix as a "sci-fi anthology series [that] explores a twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity's greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide" we can tell that it's going to send shivers up our spines.
From the trailer, it looks like the series will be tackling smart home devices similar to google home and Alexa (topical), the obsession with fame (Miley is that you), a decline in privacy and the collective unsettling sound of unsilenced phones (huh), and fighting games (ohhh).
"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," Netflix said at release.
This will be the first dose of Black Mirror since December's interactive Netflix movie Bandersnatch, a digital choose-your-own-adventure.
