The trailer of sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror season 5 was released on 15 May. Miley Cyrus, Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame), Yahya Abdul Mateen II (Aquaman), Topher Grace, Angourie Rice (Every Day), Andrew Scott (Fleabag season 2), Pom Klementieff are among the many actors part of the star-studded cast.
Though the trailer does not give away much, it is once again a commentary on the perils of technology. The video gives brief glimpses of Scott having a public meltdown as onlookers try to record it from a distance, a teenage girl, whose only confidante is a doll sized robot and a man tempted to cheat on his wife.
Despite show creator Charlie Brooker promising the audience that season 5 would be “more optimistic”, the upcoming season seems rather dark. Speaking about Mackie and Mateen being a part of the show, Brooker had told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming.”
