Sci-fi series Black Mirror will return for a fifth season of technology-fueled paranoia on June 5, Netflix announced on Wednesday, with a cast including pop singer Miley Cyrus, Avengers actor Anthony Mackie, That 70s Show's Topher Grace and Fleabag star Andrew Scott.
Creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones return with three new stories, six months after the release of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, an interactive special edition of the show that offered viewers the chance to pick from a range of scenarios.
The streaming giant shared a trailer for the new series that opened with Scott’s character sitting in a car holding a gun while in a stand-off with police.
A bored-looking Mackie then appears in a domestic scene, while in a third story, a purple-wigged Cyrus takes to the stage to perform in front of an audience.
Black Mirror, whose stories look at the effects of advanced technology on modern society, debuted in the United Kingdom in 2011.
