Netflix is teasing more of its three-episode (yes, just three) fifth season of techno-dystopia anthology “Black Mirror,” releasing individual teasers for each episode.
You can watch the video above for “Striking Vipers,” which features “Avengers” star Anthony Mackie. The minute-long teaser doesn’t give us much to go on, but that’s just part and parcel for “Black Mirror.”
But at least we do know the title of the episode and the logline, courtesy of Netflix: “Two estranged college friends reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.” Along with Mackie, the episode stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff and Ludi Lin.
Last week, Netflix dropped a full-length trailer for the three-episode season, which also features Miley Cyrus (who revealed this news herself, by the way), Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Angourie Rice and Madison Davenport.
Per Netflix, “‘Black Mirror’ is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia leading to an unforgettable – and sometimes unsettling – conclusion. 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.”
Charlie Brooker created the series and writes, executive producing alongside Annabel Jones.
“Black Mirror” will debut all three episodes of Season 5 on Wednesday, June 5
