We’ve been waiting for season 5 of Black Mirror ever since we were only presented with the less than satisfactory Bandersnatch episode over Christmas, but it looks like the wait is finally over as the new series will drop on June 5th.

We only had one mash up trailer for it last week, but now all three episodes have been given standalone trailers as well as having details about each of them released. Let’s have a look shall we:
‘A cab driver with an agenda becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control’ – with Andrew Holmes, Damson Idris and Topher Grace.
Rachel, Jack And Ashley, Too
‘A lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favourite pop star – whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy as it appears’, with Miley Cyrus, Angourie Rice and Madison Davenport.
‘Two estranged college friends reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever’ – with Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff and Ludi Lin.
Well, they all look kind of interesting don’t they and I bet they don’t pan out anything like the way you think they are going to from the trailers. That’s why we love Black Mirror though isn’t it?
Would say that Striking Vipers probably looks like the most interesting right now but who knows with Black Mirror? I’ll let you know on June 5th when I probably end up loving one of them and thinking the other two are crap. That’s generally the way with Black Mirror.
For more of the same, check out Charlie Brooker talking about a sequel to the classic San Junipero episode. Here’s hoping.
