Black Mirror releases season 5 cast details and thrilling new trailer


Black Mirror season five is just days away–and we can’t wait!

Black Mirror had a present waiting for us early Wednesday morning in the form of the season 5 trailer. And let us be one of many to tell you, it’s awesome. Ahead of dropping the trailer, EW gave us a first look into the new season of Black Mirror with an exclusive picture of Avengers: Endgame’s Anthony Mackie and Aquaman’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. They appear to be pretty pissed off at one another, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what exactly is going down.

No details were given hinting what the episode is about or what technological scare we will have to face, but series creator Charlie Brooker did say this, “It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming”. Anyone else have goosebumps?

Deadline was one of the first to share the season five trailer, along with cast details and a premiere date. So first things first, check out the official first look below. And get ready to have your mind blown, because the cast alone is something to be ecstatic over.

As far as the cast for Black Mirror season five goes, check out the list below:

  • Anthony Mackie (HI FALCON!)
  • Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (BLACK MANTA!)
  • Miley Cyrus (YES!)
  • Topher Grace
  • Damson Idris
  • Andrew Scott
  • Nicole Beharie
  • Pom Klementieff
  • Angourie Rice
  • Madison Davenport

Season five will premiere on June 5th with three episodes. Yes, only three, but we’ll take what we can get with zero complaints. Especially since the last Black Mirror episode we got was back in December with the interactive Bandersnatch. As of now, no official synopses have been released for the three episodes but you can pick up clues from the trailer above.

Next. Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II join Black Mirror. dark

Let’s see, we have a creepy robot, Miley Cyrus playing a character much like herself with adoring fans, a paranoid man freaking out over technology, and then finally, a Mortal Kombat-esque fighting scene. I have no idea what’s going on here, but I cannot wait to find out.

Tune into Netflix on June 5th to catch season five of Black Mirror–you won’t want to miss it!
