Following the cryptic and creepy trailer for the upcoming Black Mirror season 5, Netflix has released various pieces of promotional material to get our technology-obsessed minds hyped. As mentioned in the first promotional trailer, this season will consist of three episodes, which we now know the titles and plot descriptions of; Netflix has also released some intriguing posters and short teasers for each individual episode.

Striking Vipers

Netflix’s See What’s Next Twitter account states the following, “Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, and Ludi Lin star in ‘Striking Vipers’ where two estranged college friends reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.”

Rachel, Jack, and Ashley, Too

As per Netflix’s See What’s Next Twitter account, “In ‘Rachel, Jack And Ashley, Too’ a lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favorite pop star – whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy it appears… This episode of #BlackMirror stars Miley Cyrus, Angourie Rice, and Madison Davenport.”


Netflix’s See What’s Next Twitter account says the following about the episode, “Andrew Scott, Damson Idris, and Topher Grace star in ‘Smithereens’ — A cab driver with an agenda becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control.”

With just a week to go these teases show promise for another excellent season of the popular sci-fi anthology. Before its time as a Netflix Original Black Mirror‘s first two seasons/series aired on the British television channel Channel 4 with just three episodes a piece; once the show started to be produced on Netflix the episodes each season increased so it’s interesting to see series creator Charlie Brooker return the show to its roots in a way.
A main selling point this season is also its talented cast who should compellingly bring to life characters put in various complex scenarios. Anthony Mackie and Angourie Rice have been/are involved in two huge MCU films this year with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home respectively; it should be fun to see Miley Cyrus play on her real life pop persona here, just as she did years ago on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana; as someone who just discovered Andrew Scott on Pheobe Waller-Bridge’s incredible Fleabag Season 2 (Can not recommend highly enough to watch on Amazon Prime for US viewers) I can’t wait to see what he can do in a Black Mirror story.
Whether it’s the various teasers, plot descriptions, posters, or cast that draw you to Black Mirror Season 5, you’ll be able to watch it yourself incredibly soon when it releases on Netflix June 5th.
