After a love-it or hate-it one-off interactive episode of Black Mirror at the tail end of last year (Bandersnatch) I was wondering whether this would be the only sighting of a fifth series of Black Mirror we’d get this year. Thankfully, with a trailer dropping, I know know it’ll be back with a brand new set of new episodes this June 5th on Netflix.
Judging by the trailer its got some pretty familiar faces starring in this fifth season, including Miley Cyrus and Antony Mackie. Seems everyone wants to be in this show, and with writing so good, I can’t blame them. With such big names, it could imply why there’s only going to be three new episodes, but it may well be a question of quality over quantity, given that not all of the previous Black Mirror seasons have been all killers and no fillers, if we’re being honest. Having said that, I wasn’t too keen on Bandersnatch, so I’ll hold my judgement for now until I’ve seen ’em all.
Have a gander at the trailer and set your reminder for June 5th. Just less than a month’s time.
