Black Mirror Season 5: Watch Trailers For Every Episode

Black Mirror - Season 5

After confirming the imminent return of Black Mirror with three new starry episodes, Netflix has just released an individual trailer for each instalment. Considering how Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones’ hugely popular sci-fi anthology varies from episode to episode in tone, setting, and character, this is our best look yet at where the next run will be taking us all when we inevitably binge it all on 5 June. Find the title, synopsis, and trailer for each new tale here.


Official synopsis: A cab driver with an agenda becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control.

This is the Andrew Scott episode – and it looks to sit on the more grounded, less futuristic end of the Black Mirror spectrum. He plays the eqauivalent of an Uber driver who seems to be having some sort of meltdown about people’s reliance on technology, holding Damson Idris’ employee of Smithereen (presumably a tech-focused company) hostage in the back of his car. At the end we see a long-haired Topher Grace, who seems to be the voice of a meditation app that really isn’t working for Scott’s character. Black Mirror does Taxi Driver?

Striking Vipers

Official synopsis: Two estranged college friends reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.

Fresh from Endgame, Anthony Mackie takes the lead in this episode – playing an isolated husband who clearly isn’t communicating his issues to his partner. Despite claiming there’s “nothing going on”, it looks like he might have fallen down a Tinder-esque rabbit hole, after being introduced to the swiping phenomenon by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (aka Aquaman’s Black Manta).

Rachel, Jack And Ashley Too

Official synopsis: A lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favorite pop star – whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy it appears…

Or, as everyone will end up calling it, The Miley Cyrus One. This looks to be a satire on the concept of modern celebrity, internet personalities and pop stars – Vox Lux goes sci-fi, perhaps. It looks like Cyrus’ pop star Ashley, not enjoying her fame nearly as much as anyone would think, ends up trapped inside the pint-sized Ashley Too robot she flogs to her teen fans – and with that whole ‘cable-in-the-ass’ gag, this one teases a mix of humour and existential horror.
