Netflix knows we can’t wait for the next season of Black Mirror (and Stranger Things). Which is why they are now in full promotional mode as we head towards the popular show’s season five debut on June 5th.
As we saw last week with the first teaser trailer for season five of Black Mirror, what this coming season lacks in length (just three episodes), will be more than made up for with star power.
Fans of previous seasons of Black Mirror, at least in America, probably recognized some of the stars featured in the show’s first 21 episodes including Daniel Kaluuya, Hayley Atwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Hamm, Alice Eve, Letitia Wright, Rupert Everett, Benedict Wong, and the voice of Aaron Paul.
On Tuesday, Black Mirror dropped the first full trailers, titles and synopses for each of the three new episodes that make up season five.
The first trailer is for an episode entitled Smithereens starring Andrew Scott, Damson Idris, and Topher Grace, and is about a cab driver with an agenda that becomes the center of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control.
The second trailer, for the episode Striking Vipers starring Mackie, Nicole Beharie, Aquaman’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Klementieff, shows two estranged college friends reuniting in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.
And the third trailer, for the episode called Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too starring Cyrus, Angourie Rice, and Madison Davenport, focuses on a lonely teenager who yearns to connect with her favorite pop star – whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy it appears.
June 5th can’t get here soon enough.
