Black Mirror, that garnered a lot of buzz over the years, is all set to return for its fifth season. It will start streaming on Netflix from June 5, 2019.
In the trailer of the fifth season of the web series, Miley is seen as a celebrity performer who undergoes a major transformation to attract more and more fans. Variety called it a ‘meta storyline’. It seems like she belongs to the distant future. She dons a purple bob and a body-con ensemble.

The new season of the sci-fi anthology series will have three new stories from the show’s executive producers, Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones. Apart from Miley, these new stories will also star Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.
Keeping up with its theme, technology forms the crux of the stories. It distracts and tempts the protagonists. The new instalment will talk about artificial intelligence, smart technology and virtual reality. It will also shed light on social media and its impact.
In December last year, a standalone interactive film titled Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was released on Netflix. Directed by David Slade, it was scripted by series creator, Charlie Brooker. It allowed viewers to interact with the main characters. They could make decisions for the characters and engage in multiple adventures that could go on for minutes or hours.
