The anticipated fifth season comes almost six months after
Netflix dropped the “Black Mirror” interactive movie,
“Bandersnatch,” which
featured multiple endings and over a trillion unique story
permutations
.

“Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” producer Annabel Jones said in
December that
“Black Mirror” season five was delayed
because “Bandersnatch”
took so long to make.

Season five comes to Netflix June 5.

This will be the third season that Netflix has released as an
exclusive since it acquired the British series in 2015. It
previously released seasons three in October 2016 and season four
in December 2017.

Season five will include three new episodes.

Season five’s three episodes takes the series back to its roots.
Seasons one and two, which originally aired on the UK’s Channel 4
network, included three and four episodes each. Seasons three and
four each included six episodes.

Netflix calls the
episodes
, “Three new stories about the future we should have
seen coming.”

The season stars Miley Cyrus, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, and
more.

Pop singer Miley Cyrus, “Avengers: Endgame” actor Anthony
Mackie, and “BlacKkKlansman” star Topher Grace are among the actors
starring in “Black Mirror” season five.

The rest of the cast includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (“Aquaman”),
Damson Idris (“Snowfall”), Andrew Scott (“Fleabag”), Nicole Beharie
(“42”), Pom Klementieff (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”),
Angourie Rice (“The Nice Guys”), Madison Davenport (“Sharp
Objects”), and Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”).

Story details are unknown, but the trailer provides glimpses.

Story details for the three episodes are under wraps, but there
are hints in the trailer. Miley Cyrus plays a pop star reminiscent
of herself; Mackie’s character is struggling with his marriage;
Angourie Rice plays a lonely teenage girl who befriends a robot;
and one episode seems to feature a virtual-reality combat video
game.
