The upcoming, three-episode season of Black Mirror, its fifth overall, turns its dystopian lens on augmented reality technology, Alexa-esque home assistant devices, and somehow Miley Cyrus is involved as a Hannah Montana-like pop-singer alter-ego?
Creator Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones announced over a year ago that they had signed on for a fifth set of episodes with Netflix, which has been bankrolling and releasing the series since its third season in 2016. Then in late December they dropped Bandersnatch, which may have initially been conceived as part of this season, but was released as a stand-alone with pioneering choose-your-own-adventure technology.
Despite making six episodes each for Seasons 3 and 4 at Netflix, Brooker originally only put out three episodes at a time on Britain's Channel 4, with the first two seasons of the series that originally aired between 2011 and 2013.
Besides Cyrus, the new episodes feature Avengers: Endgame star Anthony Mackie, and Irish actor Andrew Scott of the BBC's Sherlock.
Black Mirror Season 5 gets released on June 5, two days before the much awaited Netflix release of the new Tales of the City.
