If an anthology can both be thrilling, horrifying, yet, enlightening, that’s how I’m going to describe Black Mirror. And lo and behold, the series is returning this year on June 5.
Humanity has proven through history of collisions, mistakes and wars that our inner greed is enormous. So much so that they tend to cause major impact to human kind. Back then, guns and swords cause the biggest fear and death.
Black Mirror explores the world of high-tech, near-future moments, telling the stories from multiple point of views. The first two seasons tell three stories, the third and fourth told six stories while upcoming season 5 will tell three new stories again.
Charlie Brooker mentioned that season 5 is not going to be far from season 4. “We’d already shot like, one of the episodes of season five before we did Bandersnatch,” Brooker said.
We’ll be seeing new faces this time around. Some of them are very familiar, such as Anthony Mackie and Miley Cyrus.
A lot of people love how directors managed to insert this geek moment with Falcon’s actor and Black Manta’s actor face-to-face in a tense situation. Here’s a full list of the cast: Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Miley Cyrus, Pom Klementieff, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport, and Ludi Lin.
